In 2020-21, Arizona Department of Education will be field testing the following two assessments:
- The Stand-Alone Field Test for the AZELLA (based on the new 2019 English Language Proficiency (ELP) Standards) will be administered from February 1 through April 2, 2021.
- The AzSCI Test was intended to be field tested during pring 2020, but school closures prevented this. In Spring 2021, the AzSCI will be administered from March 22 to April 4, 2021. Because all items are field test items, there will be no scores reported to schools or students for Spring 2021.
In Spring 2021, the AzM2 testing window was lengthened. The original testing window was 3/30/20–4/24/20 (for computer-based schools) and 3/30/20–4/7/20 (for paper-based schools). AzM2 Paper-based schools for 2021 are: Amphi Middle, Cross Middle, Wilson K-8, Holaway, and Prince.
