The statewide assessment for ELA and math has been renamed to, AzM2. The Arizona Department of Education has eliminated the AzMERIT tests and the high school AzMERIT end of course assessments. There will be no Fall or Summer administration of AzM2.
ADE has developed a single grade assessment for both ELA and Mathematics that will be administered to students in Grade 3-8 and 10 (Cohort 2023). The high school ELA assessment will not change because the ELA 10 EOC test assessed grade 10 content and standards. The final distribution of the content assessed on the AzM2 high school math assessment will be 60% Algebra I and 40% Geometry content.
AzM2 measures students’ knowledge in the content areas of English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics.
