The practice test for the Georgia Criterion-Referenced Competency Test includes questions that assess the students' skills and knowledge in reading, language arts/English, social studies and science. The type and difficulty of the sample questions vary according to grade level.
After the 2013-2014 Summer Retest administration, the state replaced CRCT with the Georgia Milestones Assessment System, a summative assessment program that evaluates students from grades three through high school. The sample questions on the Georgia CRCT practice test may be used as a review material, since some of the questions were created with the help of the Georgia Online Assessment System, which has been discontinued by the Georgia Department of Education. The Georgia Department of Education provides study guides that include practice quizzes with answers and solutions. The study guides are printable and are available in PDF format.
Unlike the Georgia CRCT, the GMAS does not assess the knowledge of students in grades one and two. Students in grades three through eight take end-of-year assessments in the state mandated standard content areas, including the subjects mentioned above. Except for the reading assessment, high school and middle school students also take the test according to their grade level. The test serves as a final exam for middle school students enrolled in one of the mentioned courses. The final score contributes to 20 percent of the students' final course grades.
