GA Milestones 

The Georgia Milestones Assessment System (Georgia Milestones) is a comprehensive summative assessment pro?gram spanning grades 3 through high school.

Students in grades 4 take an end-of-grade assessment in English Language Arts and mathematics.

Features the Georgia Milestone Assessment System include:

  • open-ended (constructed-response) items in English Language Arts and mathematics (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;
  • norm-referenced items in all content areas and courses, to complement the criterion-referenced information and to provide a national comparison; and
  • transition to online administration over time, with online administration considered the primary mode of administration and paper-penc?il as back-up until the transition is complete.
