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.  

Georgia Milestones is administered online and includes the following features:

  • Technology-enhanced items in all grades and courses,

  • Open-ended (constructed response) items in English language arts in all grades and courses,

  • A writing component (in response to passages read by students) at every grade level and course within the English language arts assessment,

  • A reported Lexile score based on the English language arts assessment in all grades and courses.

All students will complete their testing on school-issued Chromebooks. The information below is provided to assist you and your child with becoming familiar with the blueprint and features of the GMAS. We will also be conducting practice sessions at school to provide students a similar opportunity with online testing. 

Experience Online Testing Georgia can be found using the following link: GMAS Online Testing Practice Experience  The items on the demonstration tests are general and are organized into the three grade bands in the content areas of ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies. The items do not necessarily represent the specific grade-level content that students learn daily in their classrooms but are designed to allow students the opportunity to experience the online testing platform.

 

 

If you have any questions about the GMAS, please contact us. We look forward to a successful testing experience. 

 

Sincerely,

Janet Hendley
