The Georgia High School Graduation Test, or GHSGT, is an High school graduation examination administered to all students in the eleventh grade, determines whether or not a student will graduate from a high school in the US state of Georgia.

The test consists of five subject areas:

  1. English/Language Arts
  2. Mathematics
  3. Science
  4. Social Studies
  5. Writing

Students are expected to pass all five tests to graduate, but they are allowed to retake a test if they fail. A student may retake the test as many times as needed, until they make a passing score.

The test is scored from 400 - 600, with 600 being a perfect score. Students must receive 500 points in order to pass (this applies to every exam). A higher score will result in a "pass plus". Teachers review the testing process before giving the test. There are resources available to prepare both students and teachers for the test.

Additionally, the GHSGT reports out a Lexile measure for each student.[1] A Lexile measure can be used to match readers with targeted text and monitor growth in reading ability. For more information concerning the GHSGT and Lexile measures, visit
