The GKIDS 2.0 assessment provides teachers with ongoing formative information about kindergarten students’ developing skills, and it provides a summative component to serve as one indicator of first grade readiness. ACCESS for ELL's assesses the language proficiency of students in kindergarten through 12th grade who have been identified as English language learners. The Alternate ACCESS assesses the language proficiency of students with significant cognitive disabilities that are severe enough to prevent meaningful participation in ACCESS for ELLs 2.0. The GAA 2.0 ensures that students with significant cognitive disabilities are provided access to the state-mandated content standards and are given an opportunity to show what they know and can do. Georgia Milestones End-of-Grade assessments measure how well students have learned the knowledge and skills outlined in the state-adopted content standards in English language arts and mathematics in Grades 3-5 and science in Grade 5.
