Since November 2014, the State of Arizona has been administering AzMERIT as the state assessment for English Language Arts and Mathematics. In July 2019, AzMERIT was renamed AzM2. AzM2 is aligned to the Arizona Standards which were adopted December 2016. The AIMS assessment is also administered, this assessment is aligned to the Arizona Science Standards.
AzM2 is administered to students in grades 3-8 in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Students in grades 4 and 8 also participate in the AIMS Science assessment.
The students of the Laveen Elementary School District are administered both the AzM2 and AIMS assessments online. The online portal provides an interactive testing environment with item types that otherwise would not be available. Throughout the school year, students are being exposed to online tools through the continued use of our digital curriculum and computer based benchmark assessments.
AzM2 Sample Tests
Students can access the AzM2 Sample Tests from computer devices at school, and at home. Accessing these sample tests will help students become familiar with the different item types available through the AzM2 assessment. View a sample tests tutorial or access the sample tests.
