Parent Information on State and District Assessments in Forsyth County Schools
System-level and state-mandated assessments measure how well students acquire the skills and knowledge described in the state curriculum. The tests are designed to (1) ensure students are learning at their grade level and (2) provide data to teachers, schools, and the school district to support better instructional decisions.
FCS follows guidelines for test security, test preparation, test administration, and test data as provided by the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) and the Professional Standards Commission (PSC). CLICK HERE to access FCS' testing webpage, which houses information regarding the PSC Code of Ethics and PSC guidance for assessment (including information about consequences for ethics violations), as well as a link to the GaDOE Testing Assessment site.
FCS provides many measures of test security, which includes providing extensive training for school-level testing coordinators, limiting access to test materials, rotating teachers for the administration of the test, and system-level administrative oversight on test days.
For questions or concerns regarding test administration or test security, please contact your child's school administration or FCS' Assessment Division at 770-887-2461.
