Curriculum, Assessment, and Accountability




The College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) is used by the Georgia Department of Education as a performance measure and provides information to assist districts and schools in promoting and improving college readiness for all students. CCRPI was first implemented in 2012 and included multiple measures of school performance. The 2018 redesigned CCRPI was developed to support the following goals:

     1. Increase achievement for all students
     2. Make progress in closing achievement gaps
     3. Increase literacy and numeracy
     4. Increase graduation rates
     5. Increase student college and career readiness.

This redesigned framework focuses on the five components of content mastery, progress, closing gaps, readiness, and graduation rate. The overall CCRPI is reported on a 0-100 point scale.

Appling County School System follows the implementation, security, and procedural guidelines for state testing as outlined in the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) Student Assessment Handbook. Training is provided to School Test Coordinators on these guidelines for redelivery to staff members at their respective schools. This handbook is revised by the GaDOE on an annual basis.

Appling County School District provides information on how our students perform on
summative assessments such as Georgia Milestones, GAA 2.0, and ACCESS for
ELLs. Teachers frequently use various types of formative assessments in their classrooms to
guide their instruction. GKIDS Readiness Check and GKIDS 2.0 are statewide formative
assessments used with Kindergarten students.

Understanding the two types of assessments:

What is a Summative Assessment?

Summative assessment is an assessment of learning. It takes place at the end of an
instructional period and measures student achievement or mastery of intended learning
outcomes. Statewide summative assessment data is typically used to assess instructional
programs, support school, and district improvement efforts, and inform policy decisions.

What is a Formative Assessment?
Formative assessment is an assessment for learning. It takes place while instruction is still occurring to gather immediate feedback that identifies students' academic strengths and areas for growth, to plan differentiated instruction, and to support student learning.
Families are able to access their child's assessment information, current and historical, through the parent portal. If you are a parent and do not have access to the parent portal, you can send an email to
