    • The Georgia Milestones Assessment System is a comprehensive summative assessment ​program spanning grades 3 through high school. 
    • Georgia Milestones measures how well students have learned the knowledge and skills outlined in the state-adopted content standards for each subject.
    • Students in grades 6-8 will take an end-of-grade assessment in the content areas of language arts,  and mathematics, while students in grade 8 will also be assessed in science and social studies.
    • These tests are administered towards the end of the school year, typically in April or early May. Each school district selects a local testing window from within the state-designated time-frame to administer the end-of-grade measures.
    Features of the Georgia Milestone Assessment System include:
    • Open-ended (constructed-response) items in English Language Arts and Mathematics (all grades and courses);
    • A writing component (in response to passages read by students) at every grade level and course within the English Language Arts assessment;
    • Norm-referenced items in all content areas and courses, to complement the criterion-referenced information and to provide a national comparison; 
    • Technology-enhanced items including multiple parts/multiple answers, graphing, drag and drop; and
    • ​Online administration considered the primary mode of administration and paper-pencil as back-up for those students with disabilities identified through the IEP or IAP process that do not allow them to access a computer or device.
