Gordon County Schools Test Security
Gordon County Schools understand the importance of having a high quality student testing program. Each School Test Coordinator provides regular training for school test examiners according to the system procedures and the Georgia Department of Education regulations. When not in use for testing, all testing materials are stored in a secured, locked room and only school administrators have keyed access. Principals and School Test Coordinators carefully monitor all state testing to ensure procedures are followed. All testing procedures are designed to be consistent with guidance provided in the Georgia Department of Education Student Assessment Handbook and in strict adherence to the Code of Ethics for Educatiors established by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission.
State-mandated assessments include the following:
- ACCESS for ELLs to access English Language proficiency.
- Georgia Alternate Assessment (GAA) for students in a functional curriculum.
- Georgia Kindergarten Inventory of Developing Skills (GKIDS)
- Georgia Milestones: End of Grade Assessment (EOG) for grades 3-8
- Georgia Milestones: End of Course (EOC) for high school core courses
- CTAE End of Pathway Assessment EOPA for high school students.
- National Assessment of Education Progress NAEP for students in grades 4, 8, and 12 in selected schools, as determined by the GADOE.
Gordon County Schools also administers the NWEA MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) Assessment in grades K-8 in the areas of Reading, Language Arts, and Mathematics. MAP assessments are administered 3 times a year (fall, winter, spring) to measure student growth. Teachers and instructional coaches utilize this data for instructional lesson planning and academic instruction supports.
