Arizona State Board of Education Chooses New Assessment with Arizona Students as Top Priority
This morning in continuing to ensure all Arizona children have the opportunity to succeed, the Arizona State Board of Education (Board) has announced a new assessment to replace the AIMS Reading, Writing, and Mathematics tests beginning spring 2015. The Board voted and approved that American Institutes for Research (AIR) will provide Arizona’s New Assessment, AzMERIT- Arizona’s Measurement of Educational Readiness to Inform Teaching. Arizona public school students in Grades 3 through high school will take AzMERIT in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Students in Grades 4, 8, and high school will still take the AIMS Science test.
The Arizona Department of Education (ADE) is dedicated to providing the support necessary for a successful administration of AzMERIT, and ADE will work diligently to provide you information throughout this transition.
