      The Georgia Department of Education has released their final set of state wide CRCT scores for grades 3 through 8.

      According to GADoE officials, 8th graders saw increases in all areas of exceeding standards, including an eight percentage point increase in reading, a two percentage point increase in English language arts, a three percentage point increase in mathematics, a three percentage point increase in science, and a two percentage point increase in social studies.

      Going down grade levels saw a mix of results with gains being made in 14 of 30 content-area CRCTs taken this year. Eight areas showed no change, while another eight areas showed decreases. Decreases ranged from one to two percentage points while increases ranged from one to four percentage points. No decreases were experienced on Reading tests: Grades 4, 5 and 6 saw gains, while grades 3, 7 and 8 stayed the same.

      Beginning next year, all students in grades 3-8 will take the Georgia Milestones. The new testing system is one consistent program across grades 3-12, rather than a series of individual tests. It will include open-ended questions to better gauge students content mastery and, with some exceptions for special education students with specific testing accommodations, will be administered entirely online by the fifth year of implementation.

      School district results are expected to be released by June 26 while school level results will be available by July 10.
