A Guide for Parents and School-Age Students

Welcome to the Academic Success Strategies podcast, powered by Our Town Gwinnett Magazine. The show discusses significant educational topics pertinent to school-age students. In this enlightening episode #4 , Carol Wood, founder and owner of Total Learning Concepts…provides valuable insights about the Georgia Milestones Assessment for parents and students.

The Georgia Milestones is designed for students from 3rd to 12th grade as a comprehensive assessment program. These assessments measure what students have learned from Georgia’s Department of Education standards in key subject areas such as English, language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Assessment differs based on grade level and subject – presenting the EOG or the EOC for students based on their educational journey.

The aim of these spring-administered standardized assessments is to help students, parents, and teachers better gauge and understand how well students are mastering state standards in the various subject areas. Recognizing there might be concerns around students’ readiness for these tests, Carol highlights the preparatory sessions offered by Total Learning Concepts. These sessions are designed to strengthen students’ academic foundation, and to familiarize them with question format and testing strategies.

The episode concludes with specific insights into the study requirements for mathematics. Since math is a skill subject and sequentially learned, a different learning approach is needed. With guidance on recognizing study deficiencies and the importance of daily practice, Carol offers invaluable advice for students wanting to earn better grades and reduce their math stress.

Each episode of Academic Success Strategies provides timely academic and educational topics and recommendations pertinent to elementary, middle, high school, college, and adult students/learners. Enjoy these insights from Carol that students and parents alike can learn from.
