As you may know, AzMERIT testing will begin next week and we wanted to provide you more information about what to expect.
AzMERIT replaces AIMS for reading, writing, and math. All high school students will take AzMERIT end-of-course tests in English Language Arts (ELA) and math that will test their proficiency in both subjects.
AzMERIT end-of-course tests are administered to those students enrolled in English 9, English 10, English 11, and Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II. The ELA tests include a writing portion and a reading portion. Ninth or tenth graders will still take the AIMS Science test at the end of a biology course.
Passing AzMERIT is not a requirement for high school graduation. Additionally, as of last month, juniors and seniors who did not originally pass AIMS will not be required to retake the AIMS test in order to graduate.
The AzMERIT test was selected by the Arizona State Board of Education because it goes beyond multiple choice questions to provide a better indicator of what students have learned during the school year.
- Writing: The writing portion will require students to read a few passages and then write about them. This type of task requires students to think deeper about topics and use evidence to support their thinking.
- Reading: The reading portion will be administered in two parts in one day. Students will have ample time to read and answer questions. The test also contains editing tasks to measure student understanding of fundamental skills like spelling and grammar.
- Math: The math portion will be administered in two parts in one day. Students will have ample time to read and answer questions. The test will ask questions that check a student’s conceptual understanding of math, as well as their procedural skills.
AzMERIT testing will be given via paper and pencil at CHS. A late bus will be available at 4:00pm for students who test past 2:14pm.
Chandler School Boosters (CSB) is producing its first fundraiser, the Family Magic Night event. The event will be held at the Hamilton High School Auditorium on May 2nd.
