There are a lot of questions about the AIMS test. We will answer a few of the most common questions.
Is it possible my student cannot graduate if he or she does not pass the AIMS test?
Students have multiple chances to retake the test, and will know when it is their "last attempt." Schools do not want to see students not able to graduate because of this, and most are working hard to offer support and additional opportunities to practice and learn for students in this situation.
Does the AIMS test cover new standards?
The AIMS test will cover the 2008 AZ Math Standards through the 2013-2014 school year. For the 2014-2015 school year, the new 2010 AZ Math Standards, which include the Common Core Standards will be assessed.
Is the AIMS test eventually going away?
The AIMS test is scheduled to be replaced by the PARCC assessment during the 2014-2015 school year. LaurusSoft is constantly working to stay current with what is happening with the implementation of the Common Core Standards and the PARCC assessment.
