Join us for a day focused on creating and experiencing quality mathematical tasks from grades 4 through 8. Participants will learn what makes a quality mathematical task, how to determine the cognitive demand of the task, and how to implement the task at the rigor of the standards. Arizona Mathematics Standards and the Standards for Mathematical Practice will be a focus for all mathematical experiences.

NEW AzMERIT Sample TESTS are available.
The AzMERIT Sample Tests are a valuable resource for students and families, as well as district and school administrators and educators. The purpose of the Sample Tests is to allow various users to become familiar with the AzMERIT Computer-Based Testing (CBT) system and the different item types used on the AzMERIT assessment. It is important that students who will take the CBT AzMERIT test have an opportunity to take a CBT Sample Test prior to testing so they may become familiar with the types of questions they will encounter and the various tools available to use throughout the tests.
