Georgia To End Graduation Test

ATLANTA — The state Board of Education on Wednesday approved phasing out the state graduation test.

The change means students entering high school this fall won’t have to take the test to graduate.

The test includes questions in English, math, social studies and science. Instead, students will have to pass all required courses.

Final exams also will count for 20% of a student’s final grade, up from 15%.

Students still have to pass the Georgia High School Writing Test.
