Arizona's test development process involves an extensive review before an item will count toward students' test scores. During the item-development process, all assessment items are written in accordance with Item Specifications. A committee of Arizona stakeholders reviews and approves these items to confirm appropriateness for inclusion on the test. This step of the process is designed to ensure that our tests are free from bias and sensitivity concerns based on considerations including ability, age, culture, gender, geography, languages spoken, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status. Participating community members are representatives of Arizona's geographic regions and represent culturally diverse populations. For these committees, we are inviting stakeholders to provide their perspective on the items on Arizona's statewide assessments.
