GA Milestones Testing - Spring 2015

Draft Daily Testing Schedule

The Milestones Exams are fast approaching and we want to share information with you as soon as it is available.  The Georgia Milestones Exams will replace the old CRCT exams.  Students will still be tested in Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies.  The new exams will feature norm-referenced items (to provide a national comparison of student achievement), a writing component for Language Arts and for Math (short answer and extended response questions), and a transition to online testing.  For more information on the Georgia Milestones Assessments, please visit the following link: http://www.gadoe.org/Curriculum-Instruction-and-Assessment/Assessment/Pages/Georgia-Milestones-Assessment-System.aspx

The Milestones exams will be taking place April 16th through May 1st.  As we are transitioning to an online system, Eighth grade students and select students throughout the building will be taking the exam online in computer labs, on laptops or on iPads.  Most Sixth and Seventh grade students will be taking the exam in a traditional paper/pencil format.  In order to test the state-mandated thirty percent of our building online, we will be doing online testing in a morning or afternoon session over two days.  Those students taking the test in traditional paper/pencil format will be taking the test on day one of the testing window, in the morning, then having a full, regular schedule between tests.  A draft of the schedule is posted on the Autrey Mill Website under "Testing Information".

As this is the first time Eighth graders will be taking an online exam, I highly recommend students try the "Experience Online Testing Georgia" site.  There is a Grades 6-8 Practice Test that demonstrates how to use the online testing tools and gives students example questions.  You may visit the "Experience Online Testing Georgia" site at this link: http://experience-ga.ctb.com/

Other important information:

  • There will be no help sessions during the Milestones exams.      
  • Students will not be allowed to have cell phones or electronic devices in the testing rooms; it is highly recommended that students leave their devices at home during the testing period. 
  • Students should get plenty of rest and eat a healthy, balanced breakfast before coming to school on testing days.
  • As more information is made available, links and/or information will be added to the AMMS website under "Testing Information".

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ashley Agans, the AMMS Testing Coordinator at agans@fultonschools.org or call at (770) 521-7622.  Thank you!

 
 
Forgotten Items Policy​
​It is the students responsibility to check the front office for all forgotten items (homework, lunch, lunch money, books, etc.). The office WILL NOT interrupt classes to notify a student that an item is at the school. Parents may drop the item in the front office, place the student’s name on the white board in front of the cafeteria and the student will either check the office between classes or see their name on the white board at lunch.
