What type(s) of exams are administered to YUHSD students?
Every YUHSD student is required to take the AzMerit test, which is the current state test.* In addition, juniors take an ACT exam which provides valuable information to students, families and teachers about college and career-readiness. YUHSD students also have the option to take the Cambridge end-of-course board exams, which are another helpful tool in assessing each student’s mastery of core content knowledge. YUHSD fosters a positive culture where we use rigorous, high-bar assessments for academic goal setting, and to help students plan their college and career course pathways, identify academic support opportunities, and facilitate college-going conversations.
