AzMERIT Testing for 3rd-8th year students
State-mandated testing will take place again this year. Hermosa fosters an environment in which students look forward to testing. Research indicates students are better able to focus and obtain higher test scores when they are at ease and view testing as fun. Previous years of testing experiences at Hermosa support this research. We strive to create a fun testing environment. Children are allowed to chew gum, enjoy healthy snacks, and take play breaks. We ask that you do not schedule vacation days during this testing period. As our Spring Break follows testing, and Arizona has not increased the testing window for our students, we will not have the opportunity to provide “make up” tests for students who are absent.
