About the Tests

  • In 2011-2012 Arizona's Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) was used to test students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 and 10, writing in grades 5, 6, 7, and 10, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 10.
  • AIMS is a standards-based test, which means that it measures how well students have mastered Arizona's learning standards.
  • Students must pass the grade 10 AIMS in order to graduate.
  • The goal is for all students to meet or exceed state standards on the test.
