Muscogee County students begin CRCT today

Muscogee County students in grades 1-8 will begin taking portions of the Criterion Referenced Competency Test today.

Tests will be administered every day, April 14-24.

Scores on the state standardized exam help determine if a school makes adequate yearly progress according to the guidelines under the federal No Child Left Behind Act. In third, fifth and eighth grade, scores on some portions of the test are also key in determining if a child is promoted to the next grade.
