Georgia Kindergarten Inventory of Developing Skills
GPS Content Areas
Non-Academic Dimensions of Learning
ELA, Math, Social Studies, and Science standards will be assessed using 2-5 performance levels for each element. The number of performance levels was determined by the GKIDS Advisory Committee and is based on the range of student performance that can be observed for each element.
During the 2012 – 2013 school year, Georgia will be transitioning to the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS) in ELA in grades K – 12 and in Mathematics in grades K – 9.
Students in these grades and subjects will receive instruction on CCGPS in ELA and Mathematics.
Given that Georgia’s testing programs should mirror and align to the CCGPS . . .
