 Georgia's Test Development Process

The Georgia Student Assessment Program includes formative and summative criterion-referenced assessments for students in kindergarten through high school. ​​Several Georgia a​ssessments are developed and customized by the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE), in partnership with a test development vendor and Georgia educators. These custom assessments are aligned to Georgia's state content standards and expectations for student performance. While each of these assessments is unique in some ways, they all follow a similar development process.
