The Georgia Milestones Assessment System (Georgia Milestones) is a comprehensive assessment program spanning grades 3 through high school. Georgia Milestones measures how well students have learned the knowledge and skills outlined in the state-adopted content standards in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Students in grades 3 through 8 will take an end-of-grade assessment in each content area, while high school students will take an end-of-course assessment for each of the eight courses designated by the State Board of Education.
The Georgia Milestones Assessment System is designed to provide information about how well students are mastering the state-adopted content standards in the core content areas of language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Importantly, Georgia Milestones is designed to provide students with critical information about their own achievement and their readiness for their next level of learning. Informing parents, educators, and the public about how well students are learning important content is an essential aspect of any educational assessment and accountability system.
We will be conducting parent information meetings at specific schools. These sessions will provide parents a breakdown of a student’s individual score report that was sent home last month as well as resources that are available for parents to help prepare their children for the upcoming Georgia Milestone Assessments. The dates and locations are listed below. Please contact the Baldwin County Board of Education Director of Assessment or these specific schools if need more information about the upcoming parent meetings.
