About the Exam
The Georgia Milestones Assessment System is an evaluative program used to gauge student progress from grade 3 through high school. The Georgia Milestones American Literature and Composition EOC test is one of several end-of-course tests high school students must take to meet graduation requirements. It is broken into three sections and consists of 60 test items that take the form of selected response, constructed response, extended constructed response and extended writing response. The first and second sections of the test last 75 minutes each, and the third section can last up to 90 minutes. The test serves as a final exam for the American Literature and Composition course and contributes 20% to a student's final grade. Schools determine testing dates based on their local calendars.
