instructional support or enrichment your student may need and
target those skills and concepts during future instruction.
Will these scores be used to determine if my student can
be promoted to the next grade level?
For the 2015-2016 administration of the Georgia Milestones End
of Grade Assessment, state law requires that students in grade 3
earn an At/Above Grade Level designation in reading to be promoted
to fourth grade. In grades 5 and 8, state law requires that
students earn an At/Above Grade Level designation in reading as
well as score in the Developing Learning achievement level or above
in mathematics to be promoted to the next grade. Students who do
not reach the required designations above will have the opportunity
to retest. Each district sets their local retest window during the
months of May or June each year.
