The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) has posted to its website a Parent’s Question and Answer flyer at Georgia Milestones Parent Question and Answer Brochure. This document will provide answers to questions you may have about Georgia Milestones.
We are also writing to share with you information about online test administration this Spring. For a number of years, the GaDOE has been offering online test administrations as part of the state’s student assessment program. The Georgia Milestones Assessment System will continue, and expand upon, the availability of online testing.
We are writing to share with you that Hunt Elementary School will be testing students online during our upcoming Spring administration of the Georgia Milestones assessment for students in Grade 5. Students who are allowed testing accommodations will also test online in grade 3-5. The information below is provided to assist you and your student in becoming familiar with the features of online testing.
> A website, called Experience Online Testing Georgia, has been established to provide an opportunity for students to become familiar with the online testing platform. The website can be found at the link that follows: http://www.gaexperienceonline.com/. This practice site does not require a log-in and is available 7 days a week. Importantly, this practice site is not designed as a “practice test” to measure a student’s knowledge of course content and scores will not be generated. Again, it is intended to allow students to familiarize themselves with the online platform prior to testing.
> Students at Hunt in grades 3-5 have been practicing during the school day to provide students a similar opportunity to acquaint themselves with the online testing system.
