The purpose of the Georgia Student Assessment Program is to measure student achievement of the state-adopted content standards and inform efforts to improve teaching and learning. Results of the assessment program are utilized to identify students failing to achieve mastery of content, to provide teachers with feedback about instructional practice, and to assist school districts in identifying strengths and weaknesses in order to establish priorities in planning educational programs.
As a Georgia public charter school, Lake Oconee Academy is required to administer all applicable tests from the Georgia Milestones Assessment (EOGs and EOCs) program. Also, each year Lake Oconee Academy administers the Northwest Evaluation Assessment Measure of Academic Progress (NWEA-MAP) . This test allows parents to compare the performance of their child(ren) with that of other students across the nation. It also allows Lake Oconee Academy to compare the collective performance of our school’s students to that of other schools’ students.
