ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Students in Dougherty County are resting their brains Sunday night as they prepare for state testing. 

On Monday, all students, grades three through twelve will begin Georgia Milestones testing. 

It's a standardized test the state uses to measure achievement in the schools. 

Most of the state began testing last week. 

The state allowed Dougherty County's testing to be pushed back due to the storms. 

Superintendent Doctor David Mosely said he hopes to see improvements throughout the schools this year.

"We know that we are prepared better, but it will turn out to be what it is," said Mosley.

This year, high school students can use their ELA scores to help them get into a technical college.

If a student is happy with their results, they can use their milestones results in place of an accuplacer ELA score.
