Student-Teacher-Course Connection

STC Process for AzMERIT End-of-Course (EOC) Mapping

In November 2014, the Arizona State Board of Education adopted a new statewide achievement test, AzMERIT, for Arizona students. Arizona public school students in grades 3 through high school will take AzMERIT. Students taking high school-level courses will take English and Mathematics end-of-course (EOC) assessments that will test their proficiency in these subjects. The testing window for schools administering the computer-based test is March 30—May 8, 2015. The testing window for the paper-based test is April 13—24, 2015.

Creating the link between teacher, course and student

Teacher and Student

Identifying the connection between the student, teacher and course is vital to student success and academic growth but is often the most difficult to clearly view and understand. The Student-Teacher-Course Connection creates visibility and transparency into the educational progress of students and the people who inspire them.

What is the Student-Teacher-Course Connection Program?

This initiative addresses data system requirements from the America COMPETES Act, and must be fulfilled as a condition for funding received by our state and schools through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and Title XIV of the ARRA, known as the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (SFSF). Designed to meet these requirements, the Student-Teacher-Course (STC) Connection links students and teachers to individual course sections. With this program, teachers will have richer data to better inform key instructional decisions that affect the academic success of their students, while administrators will have access to better information to enable them to more effectively support the relationship between individual student success, teachers and courses.

Student-Teacher-Course Connection enables schools to maintain current course names and local course codes but links those courses and codes to a common statewide course framework. Schools continue to enjoy the benefits of local control while Arizona has complete visibility across the Arizona education landscape.
