Georgia Milestones Testing

Georgia Milestones will be administered to White County Students in grades 3-5 April 24 – May 5. Students in Grades 3-5 will be taking the End of Grade Assessment for their grade level.  Please note that not all students will test everyday during this window. It is important that students are in attendance all day during this time as testing sessions vary from morning to afternoon.

Please see the links below to help your child be prepared for the types of questions on the Georgia Milestones Assessment. Georgia Milestones assesses at a higher level than basic recall, so it is important for you and your child to see sample questions. Writing is also assessed through Milestones.
