Released Items

The AzMERIT Released Items provides details about the items, student response types, correct responses, and related scoring considerations for released AzMERIT test items. There are five items per grade level/content area. The items included in these guides are representative of the kinds of items that students can expect to experience when taking the AzMERIT tests, but are not predictive of AzMERIT summative performance.
