Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT)


The CRCT program was retired after the 2013-2014 Summer Retest administration.  The Georgia Milestones Assessment System has replaced the CRCT beginning with the 2014-2015 school year.


The Georgia Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT) were state-mandated end-of-year assessments. These tests were designed to measure how well students have mastered the content and skills unique to Georgia's Performance Standards (GPS). The CRCT item format was selected-response. Based on performance, students were classified as:


For these assessments:


  • Scores below 800 - "Does Not Meet Expectations;"

  • Scores from 800 to 849 - "Meets Expectations;"

  • Scores at or above 850 - "Exceeds Expectations."


Retest scores are included in CRCT performance measures which appear in the Report Card.
