(404) 656-2589.. 800-634-4106.. (404) 656-5976.. jblessin@doe.. GAA.. Promotion and Retention Guidance.. Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT).. What is the purpose of the CRCT?.. The CRCT is designed to measure how well students acquire the skills and knowledge described in the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS).. The assessments yield information on academic achievement at the student, class, school, system, and state levels.. This information is used to diagnose individual student strengths and weaknesses as related to the instruction of the GPS, and to gauge the quality of education throughout Georgia.. What content areas and grade levels are tested?.. Georgia law, as amended by the A+ Education Reform Act of 2000, requires that all students in grades one through eight take the CRCT in the content areas of reading, English/language arts, and mathematics.. Students in grades three through eight are also assessed in science and social studies.. The CRCT only assesses the content standards outlined in the GPS.. Due to budget constraints, the CRCT will not be administered in grades one and two in spring 2012.. When was the CRCT implemented?.. The CRCT was implemented in spring 2000.. That year, summative, end-of-year assessments in reading, English/language arts, and mathematics were administered in grades four, six, and eight.. Assessments in science and social studies (grades three through eight) were administered for the first time in spring 2002.. Additionally, assessments in reading, English/language arts, and mathematics were administered in grades one, two, three, five, and seven in spring 2002.. How is content tested?.. Currently, the mandated end-of-year assessments contain selected-response items only; however, a small number of constructed-response items may be included in subsequent years.. How does the CRCT differ from a norm-referenced test (NRT)?..  ...   These data are reported for grades one through eight in reading, English/language arts, and mathematics, and grades three through eight in science and social studies.. What steps did the state take to ensure the age appropriateness of the CRCT for grades 1 and 2?.. In order to obtain the most reliable and accurate test results from younger students, the state looked at how other states assessed students in the early grades and at the procedures identified by educational research as the most important to follow.. Key factors taken into consideration include number of answer choices, breaks during testing, and having certain aspects of the assessments read to the students by the teacher.. As part meeting federal requirements for state standards and assessments systems, the CRCT was peer reviewed by a team of external experts in the fields of standards and assessments.. This team was convened by the US Department of Education and considered evidence in the following areas: content and academic achievement standards; technical quality; alignment; inclusion; and scoring and reporting.. The CRCT was found to meet nationally recognized professional and technical standards for assessment programs.. CRCT RESOURCES.. CRCT System and School Test Coordinators Manual 2011..

Students seeking a Georgia high school diploma, who entered high school prior to July 2011, must pass the Georgia High School Graduation Tests (GHSGT) in four content areas as well as the Georgia High School Writing Test.. As a result of amendments to State Board of Education rule in April 2011, the cohort of students who enrolled in high school from Fall 2008 through June 2011 must demonstrate their proficiency in the four GHSGT content areas by either passing each of the GHSGTs or by passing one of the two equivalent End of Course Tests in each corresponding content area.. These students are also required to take and pass the Georgia High School Writing Test (GHSWT) to be eligible for a diploma.. Students who enter grade nine in 2011 – 2012 and beyond will not take, and are not required to pass, the GHSGT.. They are required to take and pass the Georgia High School Writing Test.. Students with disabilities and English Language Learners may receive appropriate standard accommodations based on their needs and the specifications of their Individualized Education Program, their Individual Accommodation Plan, or their ELL Testing Participation Committee Plan..

Students who do not pass all the required tests but have met all other graduation requirements may be eligible for a Certificate of Performance or a Special Education Diploma.. Students who have left school with a Certificate of Performance or a Special Education Certificate may return to attempt the graduation test(s) again, as often as necessary to qualify for a high school diploma.. Writing.. Content Areas.. Grade 11 Fall (September).. First.. Grade 11 Spring (March/April).. Retest.. Grade 11/12 (July).. Grade 12 Fall (September).. Grade 12 Winter (November).. Grade 12 Spring (March/April).. Grade 12 Summer (July).. Senior Retest.. According to Rule 160-1-3-.. 09, Waivers and Variances of High School Graduation Assessments Guidelines, students may receive a Georgia regular education diploma through the assessment waiver or variance process if they meet specific criteria.. Scale Scores Needed for Passing the GHSGT.. To be eligible for a diploma, a student must achieve a Pass performance level on the requisite QCC tests and a Basic Proficiency on the requisite GPS tests.. The following table shows the scale score ranges that determine each test performance level.. Below Proficiency.. Basic Proficiency.. Advanced Proficiency..  ...   a year or more, without having completed all required assessments and other graduation requirements in effect when they left school, must pass the Georgia High School Graduation Tests that are required of the class in which they re-enroll.. Those students that entered ninth grade in the fall of 2004 and prior are responsible for the transitional forms of English Language Arts Science and Social Studies as well as the QCC forms of Mathematics and Social Studies.. Those students who entered ninth grade in the fall of 2005 or 2006 are required to pass the GPS forms of English Language Arts and Science as well as the transitional form of Social Studies and the QCC form of Mathematics.. The GHSGT program will continue to offer repeat test-takers the form of the test (GPS, QCC or transitional) that became their graduation requirement when these students first entered high school as freshmen (i.. , ninth grade).. In addition to passing the appropriate set of state assessments mentioned above, students must also meet other requirements to become eligible for a regular diploma.. These include meeting attendance criteria and accumulating Carnegie units for the requisite courses as defined by the State Board of Education graduation policy.. As part meeting federal requirements for state standards and assessments systems, the GHSGT was peer reviewed by a team of external experts in the fields of standards and assessments.. The GHSGT was found to meet nationally recognized professional and technical standards for assessment programs.. Effective with the Fall 2011 administration QCC forms will no longer be offered.. Students who originally tested using the QCC forms in English/Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies should be tested using the transitional form of the GHSGT (Form T).. The transitional GHSGT forms are developed based on a carefully constructed blueprint built to ensure students have had an opportunity to learn the content and skills assessed regardless of the curriculum under which they were instructed (whether it was the QCC or the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS)).. In other words, the transitional forms are dually aligned to both the QCC and the GPS.. Importantly, these forms are scored and reported on the QCC scale and are statistically equated (of equivalent difficulty) to the QCC forms.. Please note that QCC forms will continue to be available for the Mathematics GHSGT for those students who received mathematics instruction based on the QCC.. GHSGT RESOURCES..
