Dunwoody High School 2016-2017 GA Milestones Test Scores

Dunwoody HS students performed ABOVE the State of Georgia results for all End of Course Tests for Fall Semester 2016.

Dunwoody HS Students performed AT or BELOW the State of Georgia results for the Spring 2017 EOC tests in the following 3 categories:

9th Grade Literature:  Dunwoody HS % Proficient Learner 42.5%; State of GA, 42.9%
Analytic Geometry:  Dunwoody HS % Proficient Learner 20.3%; State of GA, 24.8%
Coordinate Algebra:  Dunwoody HS % Developing Learner 39.2%; State of GA 38.6%

Georgia law requires a comprehensive summative assessment program in grades three through 12, including End of Grade assessments in English language arts and mathematics for grades three through eight, End of Grade assessments in science and social studies for grades five and eight, and End of Course assessments in designated core subjects for grades nine through 12. Those courses are: 9th grade Literature and Composition, American Literature and Composition, Algebra I or Coordinate Algebra, Geometry or Analytic Geometry, Biology, Physical Science, U.S. History, and Economics.

During the 2016-17 school year, fewer Georgia Milestones exams were required as a result of Senate Bill 364, which was signed into law in May 2016.

Georgia Milestones assesses student learning along four levels of achievement. These designations aim to shift the focus away from test scores alone, instead capturing the progression of student learning.
 
Beginning Learners do not yet demonstrate proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/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 demonstrate partial proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/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 demonstrate proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/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 demonstrate advanced proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/course of learning, as specified in Georgia’s content standards. The students are well prepared for the next grade level or course and are well prepared for college and career readiness.
