Testing Our Children: Georgia the testdevelopment process for georgia-made tests 12 participate annually in a staffdevelopment program on Standard 4 Public education, reporting and parents http://www.fairtest.org/states/ga.htm
Extractions: GEORGIA Summary evaluation. Georgia's assessment system needs a complete overhaul. Elements of the state testing program are on hold, but it is not yet certain what will replace them. In any case, the state relies too heavily on multiple-choice, uses NRTs, has a high school exit exam, and tests too frequently. Thus, the whole system, not just parts of it, needs to be redesigned. Reporting of data by sub-populations should be implemented and inclusion should be strengthened. Professional development appears somewhat misdirected toward test interpretation rather than classroom assessment. A more comprehensive review process is strongly needed. Standard 1: Assessment supports important student learning. The state mandated Quality Core Curriculum (QCC), which contains the state's standards and goals, is currently being revised. The current version is no longer required. QCC has included standards for English language arts, math, science, social studies, various arts, physical education, health, foreign languages, vocational education and various high school elective courses. The Georgia Kindergarten Assessment Program (GKAP) an individually administered, criterion-referenced test with a mix of multiple-choice items, performance testing and a teacher observation element used to assess readiness for first grade is also being redesigned. Until the redesign is completed, however, the GKAP remains a requirement. Skills assessed are communication, logical/math, personal/physical and social.
