During the weeks of April 8-19, fourth and fifth grade students at Carver Elementary will be taking the Georgia Melestones Assessment EOG (End of Grade). Georgia Milestones (GMAS) measures how well students have learned the knowledge and skills outlined in the state-adopted content standards. Because it is taken online, teachers have incorporated technology use into their lessons throughout the year, and all students will be guided through practice aimed at giving them experience with using the features and tools that are part of online testing. Additionally, all students have been familiarized with their test examiner.
Please keep the following in mind:
We ask that parents of 5th grade students make note of the following as stated in the Bryan County Schools Promotion and Retention guidelines:
To be promoted to 6th grade, 5th grade students must receive a rating of On or Above Grade Level in the are of Reading and an achievement level of Developing, Proficient, or Distinguished in the area of Mathematics. Parents of students not meeting these criteria will be notified as soon as scores are received. Remediation and re-test opportunities will be provided. Retest dates are May 20-22.
