About the Test  
Who Takes These Tests and What Are They Used For?  
The GHSGT is given to all students throughout Georgia who have entered the ninth grade since July 1, 1991. It is given to ensure that graduating students have mastered essential core academic content and skills. The test is given in four content areas: English Language Arts (ELA), Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.  
 The GHSWT is also given to high-school students throughout Georgia. It is administered several times a year, beginning in the fall of students’ eleventh-grade year. Students will have five opportunities to take the GHSWT before the end of the twelfth grade. 
 Both the GHSGT and the GHSWT measure achievement in the skills and competencies outlined in the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS). Students must pass each test in order to earn a high school diploma; however, students who do not pass the test the first time are given many retest opportunities to pass the test and graduate in the spring of their twelfth-grade year.   Those who fail to pass all of the tests at this point, but have met all of the other requirements necessary for graduation, may be able to obtain a Certificate of Performance or a Special Education Diploma. Students who leave school with either of these documents may retest again as often as necessary to obtain a high school diploma. 
 Is There a Registration Fee?  
No. Because all Georgia public high school students are required to take the GHSGT and GHSWT and pass the tests in order to receive a high school diploma, no fee is required. 
When and Where Is the Test Given?  
The GHSGT and GHSWT are first administered to Georgia high-school students for the first time in their eleventh-grade year. The GHSWT is first administered in the fall, with retest opportunities in the spring, while the GHSGT is administered in the spring, with retest opportunities in the following fall. Students will have five opportunities to take the GHSGT in each content area and the GHSWT before the end of their twelfth-grade year.   Additional Information and Support  
Additional resources to help you prepare to take the GHSGT and GHSWT can be found on the Georgia Department of Education Web site at http://www.doe.k12.ga.us.   
 How to Use This Book  
What Do I Study First?  

Read over the review Sections and the suggestions for test-taking. Studying the review Sections thoroughly will reinforce the basic skills you need to do well on the test. Be sure to take the practice tests both in this book and online to become familiar with the format and procedures involved with taking the actual GHSGT and GHSWT.  
When Should I Start Studying?  
It is never too early to start studying for the GHSGT. The earlier you begin, the more time you will have to sharpen your skills. Do not procrastinate! Cramming is not an effective way to study, since it does not allow you the time needed to learn the test material. The sooner you learn the format of the exam, the more time you will have to familiarize yourself with the exam content.  
Format of the GHSGT and GHSWT   
Overview of the GHSGT and GHSWT  
The GHSGT and GHSWT are designed to test students’ ability to read and write, knowledge of basic literary concepts, and familiarity with basic writing strategies. Each GHSGT Reading exam has 50 to 60 multiple-choice questions. The English language arts test consists of between 50 and 60 multiple-choice questions. Each question has four possible answers; only one of the four choices is the correct answer. While you should be able to get through the test in 60 minutes, you will actually have up to 3 hours and 10 minutes if you need it.   Each GHSWT has one writing prompt that requires students to write a response no more than two-pages in length to a question. The two-hour administration of the writing test includes 100 minutes of actual writing time.
