The Georgia CRCT Assessment Exams are given to all students who are in the elementary and middle schools, grades one through eight. These assessment tools were designed to measure how well students have mastered the academic standards as instituted in the statewide curriculum by the Georgia Professional Standards. These exams cover the subject areas of reading, English/language arts, and mathematics, social studies and science.
It is mandatory that all third grade students perform at grade level in order to be considered for promotion to the fourth grade. I do say considered, because there are alternative measures that a student can satisfy (If the student fails to meet the minimum standards on the CRCT exam) in order to be promoted to the next grade level. You will need to contact your local school for these alternative measures needed in order to be promoted to the next grade level.
The CRCT measures how well the students has gained and retained the knowledge and skills that were presented in the state curriculum. The purpose of the test is:
(1)To ensure the students are learning
(2)To provide data to teachers, schools, and school districts to modify instructional curriculum if the students are not obtaining the GPS standards
How are the students scored?
A student will receive one of three scores on the CRCT exam: (1) Does Not Meet Expectations (2) Meets Expectations and (3) Exceeds Expectations
Students with limited English proficiency may receive a one-year deferment from the content area assessment except for mathematics.
