2021 Milestones & EOG Information


The Georgia Milestones Assessment System (Georgia Milestones) is a comprehensive summative assessment program spanning grades 3 through high school.  Georgia Milestones measures how well students have learned the knowledge and skills outlined in the state-adopted content standards in English Language Arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.  Students in grades 3 through 8 take an end-of-grade assessment in English Language Arts and mathematics while students in grade 5 are assessed in science and students in grade 8 are assessed in science and social studies.


English Language Arts & Mathematics (Grades 6-8)

  • All constructed response (CR) items will be replaced with technology-enhanced (TE) items in Math.

    • Section 1-Reading & Evidence-Based Writing and Narrative Writing Prompts will remain unchanged.

Science & Social Studies (Grade 8)

  • These content areas will remain all selected response in 2020-2021.


    EOG Resources:

  • Test Blueprints have been updated for all grades and content areas/courses. The blueprints for science and social studies reflect the reporting categories, content weights, and the number of items/points recommended by committees of Georgia educators for the new assessment. The blueprints for other content areas have been updated to include the approximate number of points for each reporting category. 
  • Assessment Guides are provided to acquaint Georgia educators and other stakeholders with the structure and content assessed on the End of Grade (EOG) measures.
