Georgia Student Assessment Program
The purposes of the Georgia Student Assessment Program are to measure student achievement of the state mandated curriculum, to identify students failing to achieve mastery of content, to provide teachers with diagnostic information, and to assist school systems in identifying strengths and weaknesses in order to establish priorities in planning educational programs.
The assessment program includes customized criterion-referenced tests at the elementary, middle, and high school levels; and the National Assessment of Educational Progress in grades 4, 8 and 12. These mandatory state assessments include the Primary Assessments as well as Other Assessments.
