Monday, April 22nd:  Georgia Milestones Assessment System (GMAS) Testing Ends

Eighth graders will take the Social Studies portion of the GMAS today. Testing will begin shortly after the students eat breakfast and arrive at their testing rooms.  Please ensure your child gets plenty of rest and eats healthy during this crucial time of year.

The administration of the Georgia Milestones Assessment System (GMAS) will begin at FSLMA on Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019.  

The Georgia Milestones Assessment System (GMAS) is a comprehensive summative assessment pro​gram that FSLMA students will take in April 2019.   The GMAS 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 6 through 8 take an end-of-grade assessment in English Language Arts and mathematics while students in 8th grade are also assessed in science and social studies. Features of the Georgia Milestone Assessment System include:

  • open-ended (constructed-response) items in English Language Arts and mathematics (all grades and courses);
  • a writing component (in response to passages read by students) at every grade level and course within the English Language Arts assessment;
  • norm-referenced items in all content areas and courses, to complement the criterion-referenced information and to provide a national comparison; 
  • ​technology-enhanced items including multiple part/multiple answer, graphing, drag and drop; and
  • online administration considered the primary mode of administration and paper-penc​il as back-up for those students with disabilities identified through the IEP or IAP process that do not allow them to access a computer or device.
