    Georgia Milestones End of Course tests are administered to 8th grade students in Carnegie Unit courses in May to gauge content knowledge for that course.

  • PSAT / NMSQT

    We do not administer the Practice SAT (PSAT) at Summerour. However, as students approach the end of middle school or the beginning of high school, many students opt to begin taking this test in preparation for the actual SAT, a college entrance exam. If you or your student are interested, you can find more information at their website.

  • SPG / DDA

    District Designed Assessments (DDA) and Student Performance Growth (SPG) tests are created at the county-level and administered to all students in almost all courses 3 times per term: pre-test, interim, and post-test. Between the two terms, then, students take these tests 6 times yearly.

    The DDA are District Designed Assessments and used in core-academic courses (Math, Science, Social Studies, and English/Language Arts).

    The SPG are administered in most Connection courses, including fine arts, technology, and foreign languages.
