AzMerit assessment began this week. The purpose of the assessment is to measure the level of college readiness of each student. On Tuesday, we tested all 100% of our 8th grade students! On Wednesday and Thursday, we tested 98.9% of our students. So far, we have surpassed our numbers from the previous year. This has been a great start to our testing season. We have one more week of testing and are hoping for similar results. We eagerly await our results in the upcoming months!
MVJH administration would like to point out the hard work of our teachers. They spent hours modifying their rooms, completing AzMerit training, and proctoring each assessment. It took a lot of time and planning on their part to be so successful. We would also like to thank our front office staff who has been calling and organizing test make ups through out the week. They will continue these tasks through next week. A big thank you is also in order for all our parents, notably the ones who made a point to adjust their schedules to ensure students were here for make ups. Finally, a HUGE shout out to our students, who spent hours writing multiple paragraph essays on their test day. Our Bulldogs are VERY focused and energized to do well!
Next week, our schedule is as follows
- Reading 1 and 2 Monday, April 15 and Tuesday, April 16
- Math 1 and 2 Wednesday, April 17 and and Thursday, April 18
- Make Ups 16-26
