Georgia Milestones EOC

Georgia Milestones End of Course assessments (formerly known as End of Course Tests or EOCTs) are required by the state of Georgia. For the FY14-15 school year, public school students enrolled in these courses are required to take the EOC assessments to meet the graduation requirement but the grade will NOT count as part of students’ final course average. All students enrolled in the Georgia Milestone EOC courses are required to take a GAVS final exam in addition to the EOC assessments. The final exam will count 20% of students’ final course average. Final exams for Economics are taken on line on Dec. 3rd. If you are a public school student see your facilitator about when you are taking the required Milestone EOC.
