Georgia Milestones Assessment Results Show Progress and Opportunity for Camden County Schools

The Georgia Department of Education recently released student scores from the 2014-15 administration of the Georgia Milestones Assessment System which includes End of Grade (EOG) tests in grades 3-8 and End of Course (EOC) tests in grades 9-12. Results from this first year of Georgia Milestones reveal areas of accomplishment and opportunities for growth.  As expected, due to the more rigorous standards assessed by Georgia Milestones, statewide scores were lower than teachers and parents are accustomed to receiving. Camden County’s students’ scores were, once again, higher than the state average in most areas.

Understanding Georgia Milestones Learner Achievement Levels

The four achievement levels on Georgia Milestones are Beginning Learner, Developing Learner, Proficient Learner, and Distinguished Learner. The general meaning of each of the four levels is provided below: 

Beginning Learners do not yet demonstrate proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/course of learning, as specified in Georgia’s content standards.  The students need substantial academic support to be prepared for the next grade level or course and to be on track for college and career readiness.

Developing Learners demonstrate partial proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/course of learning, as specified in Georgia’s content standards.  The students need additional academic support to ensure success in the next grade level or course and to be on track for college and career readiness.

Proficient Learners demonstrate proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/course of learning, as specified in Georgia’s content standards. The students are prepared for the next grade level or course and are on track for college and career readiness.

Distinguished Learners demonstrate advanced proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/course of learning, as specified in Georgia’s content standards.
