What is AzMerit?​

AzMERIT is a required state assessment that replaces AIMS for mathematics, reading, and writing and is an untimed test. AzMERIT was selected because it goes beyond multiple choice questions to provide a better indicator of what students have learned over the course of a school year.

“The Basics”


The following series of documents (The Basics) is designed to give educators, students, parents, and members of the public more information about what a new statewide assessment means for Arizona. Materials will be updated regularly.
