Georgia Milestones Practice

For those students who will be coming in to school to take the Georgia Milestones End-of Grade Assessments, a good way to prepare for that experience is to go to the Experience Online Testing Georgia! website. By clicking on Tutorial, you will access a tutorial video. To review the User Guide for the website, click on Documentation. To enter a practice test session, click on Test Practice. On the test practice screen, choose “Online Tools Training” beneath “End-Of-Grade (EOG) Spring Main.”

This test practice platform is the same platform that students will experience during the actual assessments. The content within this practice test may not be reflective of the content that students will see on the actual Milestones tests, so students should focus on navigating the platform and not the content of the questions. Students are not expected to know the answers to all of the questions or to use this practice opportunity to prepare for test content. The purpose of this test practice is for students to familiarize themselves with and prepare for the types of test items and test-taking tools and to experience the way to navigate within the online testing platform that they will experience while taking the Milestones.
