    State Acheivement Testing Information

    AASA (Arizona Academic Standards Assessment) is the statewide achievement test for Arizona students in Grades 3-8.  All Arizona public school students in Grades 3 - 8 will take the grade level AASA assessments in English Language Arts (Reading and Writing) and Mathematics.

     

    Cohort 2026 (typically grade 9) students will take the ACT Aspire assessment in Reading, English, Mathematics, Science, and Writing. 

     

    Cohort 2024 (typically grade 11) students will take the ACT assessment in Reading, English, Mathematics, Science and Writing. 

     

    The AzSCI assessment will be administered to students in Grades 5, 8, and 11 (Cohort 2024) which will assess the Science standards for the grade level as well as the two grade levels prior.

     

    The MSAA will be administered to students with significant cognitive disability instead of the above listed state achievement assessments. This test has many built-in supports that allow students to take the test using materials they are most familiar with and communicate what they know and can do as independently as possible. The MSAA will be administered in ELA and Mathematics in Grades 3-8 and 11, and Science in Grades 5, 8, and 11.
