The Georgia Department of Education is expected this month to release statewide Criterion Referenced Competency Test results, which assess elementary and middle school students in reading, English/language arts and mathematics.
State results should be issued by mid-June, according to department spokesman Matt Cardoza. The department will issue district results two weeks later and school-level scores two weeks after the district results.
Students in grades 1-8 are tested in reading, English/language arts and math while students in grades 3-8 are also assessed in science and social studies.
The assessments are aimed at determining how well a student acquires the skills outlined in the state’s curriculum, the Georgia Performance Standards.
