Current Georgia Assessments

The purpose of the Georgia Student Assessment Program is to measure student achievement of the state-adopted content standards and inform efforts to improve teaching and learning.  Results of the ass​​essment program are utilized to identify students failing to achie​​ve mastery of content, to provide teachers with feedback about instructional practice, and to assist school districts in identifying strengths and weaknesses in order to establish priorities in planning educational programs. 

The assessment program currently consists of the Georgia Milestones Assesment System and the Georgia Alternate Assessment (GAA) for students with cognitive disabilities.
