Georgia Milestones EOG (End of Grade) and EOC (End of Course)
The Georgia Milestones Assessment System is designed to provide information about how well students are mastering the state-adopted content standards in the core content areas of English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Georgia Milestones is a single assessment system that consists of end-of-grade measures in English language arts and mathematics in grades 3-8, end-of-grade measures in science in grades 5 and 8, end-of-grade measures in social studies in grade 8, and end-of-course measures for specified high school courses. The high school courses which are tested at this time are: Algebra I, American Literature, Biology and US History.
The end-of-course measures are administered at the completion of the course, regardless of the grade level. Middle school students who are enrolled in Algebra I as an eighth grade student are required to take the associated end-of-course (EOC) measure, as well as the end-of-grade (EOG). These measures serve as the final exam for the course and contribute a percentage of the student’s final course grade per State Board Rule 160-4-2-.13 Statewide Passing Score. At this time, the percentage associated with the EOC is 20% of the final grade.
