Spring 2024 Georgia Milestone EOG Testing Information

April 1, 2024

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Marvin E. Lewis Elementary School is making final preparations for a successful Georgia Milestones End­ of-Grade (EOG) testing season that begins on April 29, 2024 and ends on May 3, 2024. Students in grades 3 through 5 will take End-of-Grade (EOG) assessments in English/Language A1ts and Mathematics. Additionally, 5th-grade students will take the Science assessment. The Georgia Milestones measure student achievement and readiness level for their next level of learning and provides information about how well students are mastering the state-adopted content standards.

Specific Information for End-of-Grade Tests:

We ask that you make every effort to ensure your child(ren) gets a good night's rest and arrives at school on time to eat breakfast and be in place to promptly begin at our scheduled time. This schedule is tentative and you will be notified of any changes. See the schedule below for more details. Parents, please allow your child to use all their testing time; therefore, please do not try to pick up your child before 2:55 PM.

Testing Schedule

We look forward to providing a safe environment for all students. In addition, resources are available to assist your student in preparing for each part of the assessment. Georgia Experience Online, has been established to provide for students to become familiar with the online testing platform.
