We take a look at the results of the state’s new test.



Last year we said goodbye to the AIMS test and hello to AzMERIT. With that change came some less-than-stellar results.

Only 34 percent of students passed English language arts (30 percent male, 38 percent female). And only 35 percent of students passed math (35 percent male, 35 percent female).

But maybe wait to panic.

As reported in the Arizona Republic, Greg Miller, president of the Arizona State Board of Education and leader of a local charter school, said he was not surprised by the low results.

“Just changing the test itself would account for a 10 to 15 percent drop in scores,” Miller said.

In addition, AzMERIT is intentionally harder than AIMS, he said. AzMERIT measures students’ mastery of the 2010 Arizona College and Career Ready Standards, which are more demanding than the standards measured by AIMS.
