Georgia Milestones

The Georgia Milestones is a comprehensive end-of-grade (EOG) assessment program that is given to grades 3 through 8. Georgia Milestones measures how well students have learned the knowledge and skills outlined in the state-adopted content standards in English Language Arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. The Georgia Milestones Assessments provide a measurement of student achievement: what they have learned and are able to do at the end of their grade level year as described in the expectations stated in the Georgia Performance Standards. The main purpose of Georgia Milestones is to improve student achievement by providing information that guides plans for improving teaching and learning.

Students in grades 3 through 8 take an end-of-grade assessment in English Language Arts and mathematics while students in grades 5 and 8 are also assessed in science and social studies. For our purposes at the elementary level, this means that grades 3, 4, and 5 will take assessments in English Language Arts (including writing) and math. Grade 5 will also take assessments in science and social studies. This year, the testing window for grades 3 and 5 will be April 15-25 (5-7 days of testing with 2 days for make-ups). Grade 4 will test from May 6-14 (5 days of testing with 2 days for make-ups).

What types of questions will be on the Georgia Milestones Assessments?

• Open-ended (constructed response) items in English Language Arts and math

• A writing component within the English Language Arts Assessments (in response to passages read by students)

• Nationally norm-referenced items to provide a national comparison, alongside criterion-referenced items

• Multiple choice items

Parents are our partners! Please see the links below for more information about Georgia Milestones and how you can help support your student(s) in grades 3-5.
