AzMERIT Tips for Parents

Adapted From Expect More Arizona

  • Make sure your child is on time to school every day. Attendance matters.
  • You can support your child by learning about the skills being assessed on the test, as well as what sample questions might look like and talking with them about it.
  • Set shared goals with your child’s teacher for what your child needs to know and be able to do during this school year. Check out the Expect More Arizona grade by grade parent guides to see the key things your child should be learning this year.
  • Check in regularly on your child’s progress to see where they might need help. Use these questions to kick start the conversation with your child’s teachers.
  • Help your child continue learning at home with fun activities you can do together found in these Expect More Arizona grade by grade guides.
  • Talk with your child about the assessment. Your conversations can help your child to not be afraid or anxious when taking the test this spring.
  • If test scores are lower than expectations, talk to your child’s teacher and work together to determine a plan to help your child improve.
