Scottsdale Unified School District AzMERIT Informational Update
AzMERIT (Arizona’s Measurement of Educational Readiness to Inform Teaching) is Arizona’s new statewide achievement test. The Arizona State Board of Education adopted Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards in English language arts and mathematics in 2010. A new test was necessary to measure what students know and can do based on these standards. With higher standards, Arizona needed an assessment that reflects those expectations. Arizona is partnering with the American Institutes for Research (AIR) to develop tests which are unique to Arizona. Click here for more information.
