The purpose of the Georgia Student Assessment Program is to measure student achievement of the state-adopted content standards and inform efforts to improve teaching and learning. Results of the assessment program are utilized to identify students failing to achieve mastery of content, to provide teachers with feedback about instructional practice, and to assist school districts in identifying strengths and weaknesses in order to establish priorities in planning educational programs.
The assessment program includes customized summative criterion-referenced tests at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. In addition, Georgia participates in the National Assessment of Educational Progress in grades 4, 8 and 12. A variety of resources, including formative tools, are provided to assist parents, educators, students and the public with efforts to improve educational opportunities for students.
- Georgia Milestones Assessment System
- ACCESS for ELLs
- Georgia Alternate Assessment (GAA)
- Georgia Kindergarten Inventory of Developing Skills (GKIDS)
- National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)
This practice site lets students see what testing online is like. Parents and educators are
welcome to try it, too. The items on the demonstration tests are general and are organized into three grade bands: Grades 3 – 5, Grades 6 – 8, and High School in the content areas of English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. The items do not necessarily represent the specific grade-level content that students learn daily in their classrooms. The primary purpose is to let students experience, firsthand, the functionality of the online testing platform. The sample tests are not graded, so have fun!
