Birmingham Falls Elementary has recently purchased online access to USATESTPREP.com.  USATestprep is a leader in online review for elementary standardized testing.  Based on Common Core standards, this interactive, student-centered, and engaging website is a great tool for your child to review concepts taught in the classroom.  Not only is it an amazing review resource, but a great way to prepare for the upcoming GA Milestones Assessment.  Students in grades 3rd, 4th and 5th grade have access to math and English language arts concepts.  Each student has a username and password.  Students are able to access this website and its resources from home.  Be sure to ask your child today about their login information. http://www.usatestprep.com/Home

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.
