GA Milestone End of Grade Assessment
Students at Birmingham Falls in grades 3 through 5 will take the Georgia Milestone End of Grade Assessment (GA Milestone EOG) in the following content areas: language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. Testing dates are April 16th through May 1st. The GA Milestone EOG is designed to provide students with critical information about their own achievement and their readiness for their next level of learning. Teachers have been working hard preparing students for this assessment.
The GA Milestone Assessment includes the following features:
- open-ended (constructed-response) items in language arts and mathematics
- a writing component (in response to passages read by students) at every grade level within the language arts assessment;
- norm-referenced items in all content areas to complement the criterion-referenced information and to provide a national comparison.
Special education students in grades 3-5 with the read to accommodation and all fourth grade students will participate in the online administration of the GA Milestone EOG.
All other 3rd and 5th grade students will take the traditional paper-pencil test. The goal is to transition to online administration over time for all grade levels.
Below is a Ga Milestone Parent Questions & Answer Brochure link that can prove more details about the GA Milestone End of Grade Assessment.
If you have additional questions, please contact Dr. Cheatham, Testing Coordinator at 770-667-2820 or email@example.com
