Georgia Milestones Assessment System (GMAS)
Georgia Milestones Assessment System (GMAS) replaces the CRCT, and Writing Assessments in grades 3 and 5. GMAS results may be used in promotion and retention decisions at grades 3 (reading), 5 (reading and mathematics). The test will consist of the following types of answer options:
Selected-Response all content areas[aka, multiple-choice],evidence based selected response in ELA
Constructed-Response ELA and mathematics Constructed response is a general term for assessment items that require the student to generate a response as opposed to selecting a response.
Extended-Response ELA and mathematics Extended-response items require more elaborate answers and explanations of reasoning. They allow for multiple correct answers and/or varying methods of arriving at the correct answer. Writing prompts and performance tasks are examples of extended-response items.
