DVUSD—AzMERIT (Arizona’s Measurement of Educational Readiness to Inform Teaching) is a computer-based test and is Arizona’s statewide achievement test. AzMERIT, which is based on more rigorous standards, provides a better indicator of what students have learned during the school year, and measures if students are on track to be college and career ready upon graduation from high school.
Students in Grades 3 – 8 take the AzMERIT assessment in English language arts and mathematics at their grade level. Students taking high school level English and mathematics will take End-of-Course assessments that will test their proficiency in these subjects. Testing schedules.
The Arizona Science Standards did not change, students in Grades 4, 8, and high school will take the AIMS Science test. Testing schedules.
