State Assessments

Each Spring, Laveen School District administers statewide academic assessments provided by the State of Arizona to measure how well students are learning. Arizona’s Academic Standards Assessment (AASA) is administered in Grades 3-8 in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Arizona’s Science Assessment (AzSCI)  assessment is also administered in Grades 5 and 8. These assessments are aligned to the Arizona Academic Standards adopted in 2016. Previous and similar assessments were called AzMERIT, AzM2, and AIMS Science. 

Test Administration

The students of the Laveen School District are administered both the AASA and AzSCI assessments through a computer-based system. The computer-based portal provides an interactive testing environment with item types that otherwise would not be available. Throughout the school year, students utilize online tools through the continued use of our digital curriculum and computer-based benchmark assessments.
