AzM2 Sample Tests Sample Tests are now available on the AzM2 portal at azmeritportal.org. There is a sample test for each grade/subject combination. These sample tests are approximately one half length tests, match the test blueprint, and include the same item types as those on the operational tests. Answer keys are provided in ancillary Scoring Guides along with the “Guide to the Sample Test” document.
These Item Specifications are aligned to the 2016 English Language Arts Standards and Mathematics Standards.
