The purpose of the Georgia Milestones Assessment System is to measure how well students have learned the knowledge and skills outlined in the state-adopted content standards in courses within the four academic content areas.  This assessment will be administered online to these Economics students.  These students have been trained on the online testing process during their class time and have experienced online testing for several years.

Additional information concerning the Georgia Milestones Assessment System is available on the Georgia Department of Education’s website at .   To see what online testing is like, you and your student may visit the Experience Online Testing Georgia website at . The items contained within the demonstration tests are general and represent multiple grade levels.  This demonstration serves to represent the process of online testing and not specific content items for a given subject.   

Please encourage your child to do their best on this assessment.  It is important that he/she is in attendance and on time, gets plenty of rest, and eats breakfast in preparation for this test.  If you have any questions concerning these assessments, you may call the school at (229)524-5135 and talk with Mr. Shane Purdy (principal) or Mrs. Natalie Horne or Mrs. Meredith Shingler (SCMHS Test Coordinators).
