Arizona’s Instrument to Measure Standards Alternate (AIMS A), administered by the Arizona Department of Education (ADE), measures what students know and are able to do in the content area of science as presented in the Arizona Alternate Academic Standards. Students will receive test reports with specific information detailing their progress toward meeting the standards. Schools will receive test reports with information on student progress that can be used to identify strengths and focus on weaknesses in their curriculum and instructional strategies.
