Cancellation of All Required Spring 2020 State Assessments in Response to COVID-19 Pandemic

  • All state-required spring testing windows, including GKIDS 2.0, GAA 2.0, Georgia Milestones EOG and EOC, and NAEP assessments, are cancelled. The Georgia Department of Education applied for and will receive a waiver for this school year’s federal testing and accountability requirements from the U.S. Department of Education. The waiver request can be viewed at accountability.gadoe.org under “ESSA.” Window #4 of the Keenville Linking Study is also cancelled. ACCESS for ELs was not impacted as ACCESS testing was completed prior to the impact of COVID-19 in Georgia.
