Dunwoody High School Georgia Milestones EOC Test Results

Below are the EOC Test Results for Dunwoody HS for the 2014-2015 school year.  The results released yesterday did not reflect the EOC Winter 2014 (1st Semester) testing administration.  I contacted the GA Department of Education to confirm and they quickly forwarded the Winter 2014 test results:

I have also created an Excel Spreadsheet with the EOC data (1st and 2nd Semester) for all DeKalb high schools.  Click on the following link to view that data:

I plan on publishing the elementary and middle school results, but it's much more data, so it will be a day or so.

Georgia Milestones reports student achievement in four levels – Distinguished Learner, Proficient Learner, Developing Learner, and Beginning Learner.

Beginning Learners: These students do not yet demonstrate proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this course of learning, as specified in Georgia’s content standards. The students need substantial academic support to be prepared for the next grade level or course and to be on track for college and career readiness.

Developing Learners: These students demonstrate partial proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this course of learning, as specified by Georgia’s content standards. The students need additional academic support to ensure success in the next grade level or course and to be on track for college and career readiness.

Proficient Learners: These students demonstrate proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this course of learning, as specified in Georgia’s content standards. The students are prepared for the next grade level or course and are on track for college and career readiness.

Distinguished Learners: These students demonstrate advanced proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this course of learning, as specified in Georgia’s content standards. The students are well prepared for the next grade level or course and are prepared for college and career readiness.

2 comments:

  1. A teacher friend of mine told me that the science and social studies parts of the Georgia Milestones tests were still structured like EOCTs, meaning that these sections were still multiple choice, rather than including constructed response and extended response items.

    Apparently new cut scores were determined so that scores could be divided up into 4 categories rather than 3.

  2. Dunwoody Owl Blog has a good perspective on these scores:
