Georgia High School Graduation Testing



The Georgia High School Graduation Tests (GHSGT for short) are a series of 5 tests administered for the first time during a student's Junior year of public school.  The 5 subjects are:
      • Writing
      • Language Arts
      • Mathematics
      • Science
      • Social Studies
In order to receive a diploma from any accredited public high school in the state of Georgia, a student must pass all 5 tests before the end of his/her Senior year.

Please visit the Georgia Department of Education's information page about the GHSGT or view their GHSGT Information Card for a more detailed account about the tests, scores, and variances.

To help prepare for these stressful tests, there are 3 sections described below to help guide students through the process.
*As I am a science teacher, I only have materials about the science portion of the GHSGT posted in my site.  However, on the Science Review page, there are links to help students review for ALL portions of the test.






One cannot simply "cram" for the Georgia High School Graduation tests.  These tests are designed to assess how much a student has learned throughout his/her high school career.  To facilitate in the learning and retention of this knowledge, this page provides tips for before opening a single book, while in the classroom, and after the lesson is over.  Look here for help with learning styles, note taking, and studying.



Students often times feel like they are prepared for a test; they took the time to study, they felt like they knew the material.  Yet when they get to the actual test, they either realize they are don't really understand the material or they choke.  The first problem is dealt with in Before the Test, but the second is linked to poor testing skills and test anxiety.  Test taking is a skill that most people are never really taught.  Some figure out a few tricks here and there through trial and error, but for many students it remains a mystery.  This page has tips for preparing for the test, how to take tests, and reducing the dreaded test anxiety.





This section focuses primarily on reviewing for the science portion of the GHSGT, however there are links for preparing for all portions of the GHSGT as well.  It is one of the most commonly failed sections, so students need to spend some time reviewing biology, physics, and chemistry as all three are on the exam.

Practice questions are posted, labeling each question as Biology, Physics, or Chemistry.  The 3 most recent questions are also posted on the right-hand side of this page.  To get the answers and explanations for each question, simply click on "Comments" and the first comment will provide you with what you need to know.
