Georgia Milestones Information
Parents and Guardians,
In May, all students in Fulton County Schools will participate in the Georgia Milestones Assessments – the comprehensive assessment program for grade three through high school. The assessments cover English language arts/literacy and mathematics in grades three through eight. Science and Social Studies assessments will only be given in grades five and eight.
These exams are part of Georgia’s Milestones Assessment System, designed to provide information about how well students are mastering the state-adopted content standards.
The tests include a wide variety of questions such as multiple choice and constructed responses that require students to explain how they solve problems, think critically, and write analytically. These skills take time and effort to master, but students will need them to succeed in the future.
In Fulton County Schools, we see these tests as an academic checkup. Like class assignments and report cards, they are one gauge of student progress – one way to provide you and your child’s teachers with information about your child’s work toward the high goals we have set for our students.

Milestones Testing will be competed on the student’s iPad between May 3rd and May 14th for face to face students.
