AIMS Replacement

In order 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.

The AIR will better measure students’ readiness for the future and will offer computer-based items that better measure students’ mastery of the standards including problem solving and critical thinking skills.  The AzMERIT testing window and times are similar to AIMS testing window and times. Students will participate in testing for about 7 hours across multiple days during an April testing window. 

The most up-to-date information regarding the new state assessment, Az-Merit, can be found on the Arizona Department of Education’s website.


We will continue to pass along information as we receive it from the Arizona Department of Education
