In October 2014, the Arizona State Board of Education is planning to adopt a new statewide achievement test for Arizona students. In order to help communicate the purpose of the new test and several important aspects of the upcoming implementation process, the Arizona Department of Education has created a series of helpful resources to guide all stakeholders through the transition.
The following series of documents (The Basics) is designed to give educators, students, parents, and members of the public more information about what a new statewide assessment means for Arizona. Materials will be updated to reflect the adoption of the new assessment when the State Board makes its final decision.

Please check this page often as we will regularly be adding new resources.
The Arizona Department of Education will be seeking educator involvement in several projects related to the new assessment. If you are interested, please complete or update a committee application.
