In Brief

AzMERIT for 2017-18 data is downloaded from the Arizona Department of Education’s Accountability & Research website. County-level totals are filtered to show scores for students enrolled in eighth grade who took any math assessment. Students with scores in performance levels 3 and 4 (Proficient and Highly Proficient) are considered to have passed this assessment. The ADE report breaks down these scores by county and several demographic characteristics. To protect student privacy, ADE does not report cell counts that represent ten or fewer students. Also to protect privacy, all cells either zero of one percent are grouped together and reported as “<2.”
