Milestones score projections low
The expectations are higher and the standardized test is different, so parents, school officials and the students who took the Georgia Milestones tests are being notified that the scores could be lower this first year.
When the Georgia Milestones test was put into place, state school officials sought a more rigous test.
The former CRCT that now has been done away with, afforded students the opportunity to score lower yet still allow a passing grade on the Criterion-Referenced Competency Test.
The state of Georgia has among the lowest standards for proficiency in its testing.
The state administered an end-of-course test in coordinate algebra in 2013, and just 37 percent scored proficient on that assessment.
The Milestones test scores are expected to be released later this month of October.
Another aspect new to the Georgia Milestones is four levels of achievement in student scores: beginning learners, developing learners, proficient learners and distinguished learners. Students ranked as beginning learners have been deemed unprepared to move on to the next grade, while developing learners can move on but will require additional support.
The proficient level will mark students who are on track, and the distinguished level will be reserved for students that show “advanced proficiency.”
