NOTE: Grade 3 will participate in a paper/pencil administration while Grades 4-8 will participate in an online test administration.  Students have been practicing a website, called Experience Online Testing Georgia.  This website 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:  This site is intended to allow students to familiarize themselves with the online platform prior to testing.  Test items in the online version of Georgia Milestones are designed to be comparable to those in the paper-and-pencil version.

You can help ensure that your child does his/her best during this testing period by:

  • Making sure your child gets plenty of rest each night of testing;
  • Providing nutritious dinners and breakfasts daily;
  • Encouraging your child daily to listen carefully to the instructions;
  • Making sure that your child gets to school on time each morning of testing;
  • Ensuring your child has his/her prescribed eyewear (if needed).

Once testing has begun, classes cannot be interrupted, e.g., check-outs. Being late to school might prevent your child from receiving a complete score report once testing is completed. Only students who have unavoidable, unplanned absences are permitted to make up exams missed.  Make-ups will be administered within the testing dates (4/17- 4/28).

The Georgia Department of Education has prohibited students from bringing into the testing environment any electronic communication devices (cell phone, PDA, etc.) that could allow students access to information. Please share this information with your child to prevent any problems with testing.

The EOG is a very important test, but it is only one measure of your child’s achievement. Therefore, we do not want students to be overly anxious.  Please encourage students to relax and to do their very best.

If you have questions about our upcoming spring test administrations for Georgia Milestones, please contact the administration at your child’s school.
