The Accountability Section aims to measure the growth in quality of Arizona schools and districts by producing timely and reliable accountability determinations as required by state and federal law. The section works closely with Assessments, the State Board of Education, and Research in order to accurately label schools in a fair and systematic manner. Accountability staff support schools, districts, and other stakeholders to refine the system as well as utilize data in an appropriate and effective manner. The Arizona Department of Education Research and Evaluation division conducts research and program evaluation on pertinent issues and programs related to education for the state of Arizona. This involves conducting empirical and qualitative research for various divisions both within and outside of the Agency.

Our goal is to foster ongoing working relationships within the Arizona Department of Education as well as the community at large. We serve the public education system throughout Arizona by providing empirical and qualitative research and the application of quality program evaluation while advancing community understanding of the relevance of research.
