Georgia Milestones

Replaces:

Criterion Reference Competency Test (CRCT)

– Grades 3-8

End Of Course Tests (EOCT)

– High School courses

Writing Assessments in grades 3, 5, and 8

  • writing, in response to text, will be assessed as part of the ELA assessment in each grade and course
ga milestones will

GA Milestones will…

Address higher expectations and rigor

Indicate student preparedness for the next level

Indicate student achievement both within system and with external measures

Combine reading, language arts, and writing into a single measure to align to the standards

Blended Assessment: Criterion-Referenced and Norm-Referenced

    • criterion-referenced (CR) performance information: students’ mastery of state standards (CCGPS/GPS). Proficiency*
    • norm-referenced (NRT) performance information: national percentiles, depicting how students’ achievement compares to peers nationally
    • some norm-referenced items may not align to Georgia’s content standards. Only alignedNR items will contribute to *proficiency designations.

Ga Milestones Online

Online will be the primary mode of administration with paper/pencil serving as back-up

Transition will occur over time –

30% online 2014-2015

“each school administering some degree of Georgia Milestones testing online across all grades”

Addition of technology-enhanced items beginning in 2016-2017

Administration procedures will change over time
