Georgia students will take new standardized test next year | The Augusta Chronicle

Students in Georgia will face a new standardized test next year that focuses on college and career readiness, which officials are pegging as more rigorous than past assessments.

The state Department of Education announced Wednesday the Georgia Milestones Assessment System will replace both the Criterion Referenced Competency Test for elementary and middle grades as well as the End of Course Test in high school.

The state will pay $107 million for CTB/McGraw-Hill to develop the tests this summer. The tests will be aligned to the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards.

Last year, Georgia elected to drop out of a multi-state consortium that was creating a uniform accountability test around Common Core because of the projected cost, estimated at $29.50 per student.
