Introducing New Practice Assessments for Georgia, South Carolina, Florida, Texas, and Mississippi



Exciting news for Georgia, South Carolina, Florida, Texas, and Mississippi educators! Progress Learning now offers state-specific practice tests to prepare students for their end-of-year standardized assessments. 

It’s that time of year! Time to start preparing your students for end-of-year state standardized assessments with quality test prep materials. 

One of the most important components of preparing students is providing them with practice tests that actually look like the assessments they will encounter at the end of the year. By this, we mean practice tests that are similar in length, quality, content, and question types. This way students can practice for the whole experience and gain valuable insight into what the real assessment will be like and how prepared they are for it. 
We are excited to announce that Progress Learning is now providing exactly these kinds of practice assessments for Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida! Our dedicated academics team has made sure that our practice questions look just like the questions students will encounter on their standardized assessments both in terms of content (what will be on the test) and question type (how the questions are asked).

Georgia Practice Milestones EOG and EOC Assessments

For Georgia, we have put together Practice Milestones End-of-Grade (EOG) and End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments. These assessments have been designed to closely match Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) and mimic the types of questions students will come across on test day. With these assessments, we aim to provide students with the most authentic practice test experience possible. 

These practice tests are an excellent way to give your students a closer look at what to expect on their Milestones End-of-Year and End-of-Course Assessments and for you to gather insightful data to help them succeed. These tests should be prepped for and administered only once as we have worked hard to make them as close to the real thing as possible. Ensure students are well prepared before taking the practice test in order to get the most accurate data for your planning.

South Carolina Practice SC READY and EOCEP Assessments

In South Carolina, you can now prepare your students for their SC READY and EOCEP Assessments with Progress Learning practice tests. We are committed to staying up to date with the assessment schedule for South Carolina and the ever-evolving SCCCR standards, and we have worked to make sure you have everything you need to help your students succeed on these assessments. 
Just like the Georgia practice tests, the South Carolina practice tests are an excellent way to give your students a closer look at what to expect on their end-of-year assessments and for you to gather insightful data to help them succeed. And since these practice tests are so similar to the real thing, they should be prepped for and administered only once. Ensure students are well prepared before taking the practice test in order to get the most accurate data for your planning.

Florida Statewide Assessments for FASt, EOC, and ssa

Last year, we prepared our materials and content to ensure we were ready for the switch from FSA to FAST in Florida. Our academics team works hard to make sure that we are always up-to-date and on top of all standard updates and we have been ready for this change. Our content and materials are fully aligned to the Florida B.E.S.T standards and we are here to support you with the Florida Statewide Assessment Program 2022-23 Schedule. Our new practice assessments will allow you to help your students prepare. This is an excellent opportunity to give your students a closer look at what to expect on their statewide FAST, EOC, and SSA assessments and for you to gather insightful data to help them succeed. These practice tests should be prepped for and administered only once as we have worked hard to make them closely match what students will see on statewide exams. We recommend using our practice tests before the PM3 administration to ensure students are well prepared in order to get the most accurate data for your planning. Our practice assessments are as close to the real thing as possible to ensure that you gather the most accurate data for your planning. This is just the latest addition to our extensive standards-aligned materials to help students achieve standards mastery!
