GA Milestones for grades 3rd - 8th
Bulloch County Schools’ third- through eighth-grade students will take the Georgia Milestones End-of-Grade Tests (EOG) April 12 – April 27. The EOGs are state-mandated tests. They measure how well students have learned the information and skills outlined in the state’s adopted academic standards for English language arts, math, science and social studies. Parents can access additional information about the tests at www.bulloch.k12.ga.us/gamilestones.
EOG Performance Levels
Georgia has developed a specific set of academic performance standards or expectations at each grade level for all students in Georgia public schools. EOGs are like an academic checkup designed to measure how well students are acquiring the knowledge, concepts and skills set forth at each grade level. They give students an opportunity to show what they know. Student achievement in each content area is classified into four performance levels: Beginning Learner, Developing Learner, Proficient Learner or Distinguished Learner. These results provide teachers with valuable information regarding each child’s academic achievement and progress, so that they can best design educational programs to meet needs.
EOG Performance & Promotion
A child’s performance on the EOGs also assists in determining promotion to the next grade level for all students. The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) and the State Board of Education have established specific performance guidelines for third, fifth and eighth grades as follows:
Availability of EOG Results
Student test results will be provided to parents and schools as soon as they are made available from the state. The school system expects preliminary reports to be available by early to mid-May. The official paper copies for parents and students records are expected in early summer.
Remediation and Retesting
Children in third, fifth and eighth grades who do not meet the required performance guidelines will be provided remediation and an opportunity to retest. Students will not be compared to each other, but will be measured on how well they are meeting academic standards.
EOGs Administered Online
The GaDOE has completely transitioned to online testing for the EOGs. Online testing is now considered the primary mode of testing. Bulloch County Schools will administer all tests online except for students with a documented need for accommodations. All students in third through eighth grades will take the English Language Arts and Mathematics tests. Only grades five and eight will take the Science and Social Studies tests. The tests will be administered in the following order: English language arts, math, science and social studies.
To see what online testing is like, you and your child can visit the Experience Online Testing Georgia website at http://gaexperienceonline.com.The items on the demonstration tests are general and represent multiple grade levels. They do not assess student achievement. Additional resources to help your student prepare for the EOGs are available on the GaDOE website at http://testing.gadoe.org
EOG Question Formats
The EOGs will include the following types of questions in these subject areas:
How Parents Can Help
We have learned over the years that your encouragement, as well as adequate rest and good nutrition, are valuable to children’s learning throughout the year, not only when they take tests. These are ways to ensure your child is ready to do their best each day:
Pre-K and Kindergarten Registration
Pre-K registration dates: March 1st through March 24th .
Kindergarten registration dates: May 1st through May 5th.
