Please be aware that the Arizona Department of Education does not issue student AIMS results. Please contact the school or LEA where the student tested for this information.
Note:This is a report of the combined student performance results from the Spring 2015 administration of the AzMERIT statewide assessment and the National Center and State Collaborative (NCSC) alternate statewide assessment. This file contains reports of the percentage of Arizona public school students who passed the statewide assessments, and the percentage at each performance level. The report includes percentages for Arizona public schools, districts and charter holders, county, and statewide results.
Valid test results were included for students with an enrollment in an Arizona public school on the first date of the Spring 2015 enrollment test window. Results are counted at the school in which a student was enrolled, not where the student was administered the assessment. The source of the subgroup and ethnicity data is the Student Accountability Information System (SAIS), which is reported by Districts and Charter Holders to the Arizona Department of Education.
