Write Score Reading and Writing

Our school will participate in Ga Milestones test prep by taking the Write Score Reading Assessment. The assessment will be Feb. 6-15 (grades 3-8). The assessment will be offered ONLINE. It’s like Write Score Writing but or Reading.

Grades 2, 3, 4, and 5 will take the Write Score Writing assessment during this window as well. I will email you when we get closer to the window to ensure you received access and send you instructions for the assessments.
