Assessment of Learning

It is the belief of the Gilbert School District that an open line of communication between home and school should be maintained
at all times to increase the likelihood of student growth and success. In order to ensure that Gilbert Public School students are
being challenged academically, their performance is assessed continuously using a variety of measures:

State Mandated Assessments:  
  • Students in grades 7 and 8 will take AzMerit in English language arts and mathematics at their grade level. 
  • In high school, students will take AzMerit End of Course assessments in English language arts and mathematics.  AzMerit will be administered to high school students enrolled in English classes in 9th through 11th grade, and Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II. 
  • AIMS Science will be administered to students in 8th grade and once in high school - typically in 9th grade students enrolled in Lab Biology course. 
  • The American Civics Act requires high school students to correctly answer at least 60 out of 100 questions on a test identical to the civics component of the naturalization test used by US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).  Beginning with 2016-2017 school year, students will be blanket tested in 8th grade during the Spring.  
  • In order to be eligible to graduate from a Gilbert Public School, students must earn the high school course credit requirements.
