• Our State Standardized Test, which is the Georgia Milestones Standardized Test, is completely on the computer.  It will consist of a variety of open-ended questions as well as the standard multiple choice questions.  Due to this, I am recommending that each student practice typing for 15 minutes a night.  This will truly benefit the students.  These are just a few of the websites that you can use to practice typing skills. Thanks!

    Here are some tips and guides to help your student achieve success on the Georgia Milestones:

    • Experience Ga Milestones:  This practice site lets students see what testing online is like. Parents and educators are welcome to try it, too. The items on the demonstration tests are general and represent multiple grade levels. The items do not necessarily represent the specific grade-level content that students learn daily in their classrooms. The primary purpose is to let students experience, firsthand, the functionality of the online testing platform. The sample tests are not graded, so have fun!
