Computer adaptive tests (CATs) have been around for decades, but the potential of these sophisticated testing tools to provide actionable individualized instructional recommendations remains relatively untapped. As the presence of technology grows in schools, CATs are emerging as the perfect tool for collecting rich data on student ability and capturing the deep insights teachers need to make differentiated instruction a reality.

What is the purpose of a standards-based report card?
The purpose of the new reporting system is to provide parents, teachers and students with more accurate information about students' progress toward meeting standards. Parents will be more aware of what their children should know and be able to do by the end of each grading period.
How is progress measured?
The new report card for grades K-3 will include a grading scale (1-4).
1- Beginning Learner
If an indicator is not measured during the grading period, the student will NOT receive a mark on the report card.
How are standards-based report cards different from traditional report cards?
On traditional report cards, students receive one grade for each subject. On a standards-based report card, each of the subject areas is divided into a list of skills and knowledge indicators that students are learning.
How will promotion be determined?
For promotion to the next grade, students in K-3 must have at least an overall score of 2 in ELA and Math. The overall score will be calculated as the average of the 4th term scores on each indicator for ELA and Math. Third-grade students must also meet the requirements related to the Georgia Milestones Assessment. See promotion policy.
