What is AzMERIT?
AzMERIT is an annual statewide test that measures how students are performing in English language arts and math. Although testing is never fun, assessments can be effective tools to support your child’s learning. They can tell you and your child’s teacher if your child is on track to succeed or if he/she needs to spend additional time learning a topic.
Who takes the tests?
Students in public district and charter schools in 3rd grade through high school take the AzMERIT test each spring. For high school students, the test is given at the end of their courses, similar to a final exam.
When are the test results being released?
Initial AzMERIT scores were sent to districts and charters in early June and they will receive copies of each student’s family score report in July. Schools can decide to send them home in backpacks, schedule parent meetings or mail them home. Many will be waiting until the start of the new school year.
