Announcements: UPDATE: Reading & Evidence-Based Writing Field Test Rescheduled for January 8 - 12, 2018


UPDATE: Reading & Evidence-Based Writing Field Test Rescheduled for January 8 - 12, 2018 




On October 3, 2017, the Georgia Department of Education gave school districts the flexibility to administer the upcoming Georgia Milestones Reading & Evidence-Based Writing Field Test in January 2018. This flexibility was offered due to the loss of instructional days during Hurricane/Tropical Storm Irma. On October 11, 2017, the SCCPSS administration elected for all high schools to test in January 2018.  Therefore, if your student received a letter with information stating that he/she was selected to participate in this field test, please note that the Reading & Evidence-Based Writing field test has been rescheduled to the week of Monday January 8, 2018 through Friday January 12, 2018.


Given this field test will now occur in the Spring 2018, students will still be assessed on the previous grade-level (or course), using an off-grade approach. This approach ensures students are assessed on content they have had an opportunity to learn (albeit the previous school year). The off-grade approach means that students will take items on the field test for the previous grade level or course (i.e., the grade or course they just completed from school year 2016-2017).


It is important to note that students are not being evaluated and will not receive a score for the field test; however, participation in the field test offers an opportunity for additional experience working with this section of the test. The information gained from this field test will provide the state with data to aid in the evaluation of the test items. There is no need for you, or your student, to prepare in advance of this field test.


We sincerely appreciate your student’s participation in this important part of the development process for Georgia Milestones.
