Arizona’s Instrument to Measure Standards will soon fade into the state’s educational history. On March 28, Gov. Jan Brewer signed House Bill 2425, legislation that enables the Arizona Board of Education to replace AIMS with an improved performance assessment aligned with the Arizona Common Core standards.

Sophomore Lily Davis listens intently to a pre-test orientation given by the instructor before taking a section of Arizona’s Instrument to Measure Standards on Wednesday, April 10, at Sedona Red Rock High School. Gov. Jan Brewer recently signed a bill to end AIMS.“I am proud to sign HB2425 today, as Arizona can accept nothing less than the best classrooms possible for our students,” Brewer said. “Our children must be able to compete on a global stage. The era of low expectations and minimum-competency is over.

Sedona and Verde Valley schools are working hard to train and prepare for the big shift in state standards testing. AIMS will be replaced by the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness of College and Careers, also referred to as Common Core.
