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.  High school students take an end-of-course assessment for each of the 10 courses designated by the State Board of Education.

The Georgia Milestone Assessment System include:

  • open-ended (constructed-response) items in English Language Arts and mathematics;
  • a writing component (in response to passages read by students) 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
  • online administration considered the primary mode of administration and paper-penc‚Äčil as back-up until the transition is complete.
