  • Milestones EOG Testing

    What is this assessment?

    The Milestones EOG is administered to 3rd – 8th grade students each spring.  All grades will take English/Language Arts and Mathematics Assessments.  Fifth graders also take a science test and 8th graders take assessments in Science and Social Studies.  The results of these tests provide information about the student’s readiness for the next grade level. 

    The Milestones EOCs are administered at the end of an EOC course to provide information about the student’s achievement in the course. 

    Why is my child taking this assessment?

    These are state required assessments.  For EOCs, the test serves as a final exam and contributes to a percentage of the student’s final grade in the course. 

    Where can I find more information about this assessment?
