Georgia’s Lexile Levels

                             

A Lexile measure is a valuable piece of information about either an individual’s reading ability or the difficulty of a text, like a book or magazine article.  The Lexile Framework for Reading helps us to know how well a student can read and how hard a specific book is to comprehend.

Facts About the Georgia Milestones Assessment

The Georgia Milestones Assessment System is designed to be a comprehensive, coherent and consolidated assessment system.  Students in grades 3-8 will be assessed.

Design of the test:

 Selected-Response (Multiple Choice) for ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies

 Constructed Response will be given for ELA and Mathematics – These items require the student to generate a response as opposed to selecting a response.

 Extended-Response will be given in ELA – These items require more elaborate answers and explanations of reasoning.  Writing prompts and performance tasks are examples of extended-response items.

Presenting Mrs. Johnson:

My name is Balisha Johnson.  I am married and have two precious boys.  I have been in the teaching profession for 16 years.  I taught Kindergarten for 9 years,  First Grade for 4 years, and Third Grade for 2 years.  I truly enjoy teaching young children.  I believe that all children can learn given the opportunity and the right environment.  I set high expectations for all students and encourage them to do their best at all times.  I am excited about this school year.  This year I am the Literacy Coach.  I will have the opportunity to work with teachers more closely as well as interact with parents and students.  I look froward to an awesome year.
