GA Milestones Student Score Report

  • GA Milestones Student Score Report Parent BrochureHow can I use the Individual Student Report to help my child?Your student’s score report provides information that describes how prepared he or she is to move on to the next grade level. In areas where your student did not demonstrate proficiency, you can ask your student’s teacher to suggest ways that you can support your student. You also can ask what can be done at home to build on your student’s strengths in those areas where he or she demonstrated grade‐level proficiency or better.

GA Milestones Helpful Documents for Students/Parents

 

Georgia Student Growth Model Report (GSGM)

* Georgia Student Growth Model (GSGM) is designed to provide students, parents, educators, and the public with important inform​​ation on not just whether a child met the grade level standards but also how much the student grew academically throughout the school year.

* Student growth in addition to performance levels (Distinguished, Proficient, Developing, or Beginning Learner) tells a more complete story about the academic performance of students. 

* The Georgia Department of Education's Parent Engagement committee has created a wonderful video providing an overview of the GSGM (Georgia Student Growth Report) for parents. You can view that video here.  Also, you can learn more about the GSGM Report at this site.
