Important Information About State Testing

Dear parents:

We need your help to make sure we have a smooth and positive testing season.  Please review this information carefully.

  1. Please make sure your student arrives to school on time during testing days. Click HEREto view the GMS Testing Calendar.
  2. Please avoid making appointments for students during the school day on the dates shown on the testing calendar.  Most testing will begin soon after the first bell and be complete by noon, but some of the tests are untimed and testing could go until the end of the day.
  3. Students should get a good night’s rest before testing days.
  4. Eat a healthy breakfast on testing days.
  5. Students may not be in possession of any electronic device that can be used for communicating, recording, timing, creating images, or storing images.  These devices include, but are not limited to, cell phones, media players, electronic readers, smart watches, and headphones.  The devices will be collected by the TA before testing begins. 
  6. Students, do your best and you will be fine
  7. Please see the SC Department of Education’s calculator policy.
