  • AzMERIT to Replace AIMS Exams for 2017 Graduates
    Arizona Dept. of Education Logo
    The State Board of Education has adopted a new assessment to replace the AIMS Reading, Writing and Mathematics exams. AzMERIT, Arizona’s Measurement of Educational Readiness to Inform Teaching, will be administered statewide in the spring of 2015 for the first time. The tests will measure proficiency of the Arizona College and Career Ready Standards in the areas of Math and English Language Arts in grades 9, 10 and 11.

    Currently, students will not be required to pass the end-of-course tests for graduation, but must still earn the minimum number of English and Mathematics credits in order to graduate. The actual test dates have not been determined yet, but will be across multiple days in April.

    High school students graduating after December 31, 2016 will no longer be required to pass the AIMS tests to graduate high school. AIMS Science will still be administered, tied to school accountability, but not graduation.
