Pursuant to state statute, the State Board of Education is required to adopt a statewide assessment in English language arts (ELA), mathematics and science. The Board is also required to adopt a Menu of Assessments for grades 9-12. Local education agencies may select an assessment from the Menu to administer in addition to the statewide assessment. Assessments on the Menu must: 1) be high quality; 2) meet or exceed the level of rigor of the state academic standards; and 3) be able to be scaled for accountability purposes (A.R.S.15-741.02).
Please keep in mind, the selected assessment must be administered to all 11th grade cohort students in the local education agency and is in addition to the statewide assessments in ELA, Math and Science. Additional information may be found below.
The deadline to notify the Board of an assessment selection from the Menu has passed.
