EOC Time: Be Here, Be Ready

The Georgia Milestones Assessment System is a comprehensive summative assessment pro​gram spanning grades 3 through high school.

Georgia Milestones measures how well students have learned the knowledge and skills outlined in the state-adopted content standards in English Language Arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. High school students take an end-of-course assessment for each of the ten courses designated by the State Board of Education.

Students at the high school level will take an end-of-course assessment in the following ten courses:

English Language Arts

  • Ninth Grade Literature and Composition
  • American Literature and Composition


  • Algebra I or Coordinate Algebra
  • Geometry or Analytic Geometry


  • Biology
  • Physical Science​​

Social Studies

  • United States History
  • Economics/Business/Free Enterprise

The end-of-course measures are administered at the completion of the course, regardless of the grade level. These measures serve as the final exam for the course, and contribute 20% to the student’s final course grade.

End-of-course assessments will be given at Cross Keys beginning December 4th and continue through December 12th.
