On Monday and Tuesday, October 30-31, 2017, approximately 350 Tift County High School seniors will participate in the Georgia Milestones Reading and Evidence-Based Writing Field Test.
The purpose of the field test is for the state to evaluate the quality of the items on the test, not to evaluate student performance. Students will not be impacted academically by their performance on the test.
Students will be tested during their English class or during a course that is not associated with an End-of-Course Test. Students will receive notification through their student email and also will be notified on campus.
Students are asked to treat this test just as they would a regular End-of-Course Test. It will be an opportunity for them to practice in an online testing environment on their new Chromebooks prior to their End-of-Course Exams at the end of this semester.
