Standardized Testing​​


Each Fall, students in grades 3 and 5 take the IOWA.  This is a nationally normed test that compares students of the same grade level across the nation.  This is a test of basic knowledge.   Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 take a test in the Spring called the Georgia Milestones End of Grade (EOG).  This is a test of what was taught during the school year and compares students in the same grade across the state.
