AZ LEARNS

Description: 

In November 2001, Arizona voters approved Proposition 301 which, among other things, provided funds to the Arizona Department of Education to develop a system to measure school performance based on student achievement. The accountability system created to satisfy the statute is referred to as the Arizona LEARNS. It specifies that the profiles of schools serving grades K-8 shall be based on a formula that includes the percent of students who pass AIMS, Arizona Measure of Academic Progress (MAP), and performance on the English language proficiency test. The law specifies that the profiles of high schools shall be based on a formula that includes the percent of students who pass AIMS, dropout rate, graduation rate, and performance on the English language proficiency test.
