Georgia Milestones assessmentaka GCRCT *This is a new assessment. Therefore, it is not possible to directly compare the scores on the new test with your student’s scores from previous years. The new assessments measure deeper knowledge, and skills deemed particularly important for students’ futures including problem solving, writing, and critical thinking. Because the standards are more rigorous, student achievement scores may initially be lower. For more info see www.pta.org
