In 2010, Arizona adopted its College and Career Ready Standards (AZCCRS). These standards are utilized throughout the state of Arizona, and provide guidance to teachers when developing curricula and classroom activities. These standards are also the ones that will be assessed statewide beginning 2015 via Arizona's Measurement of Educational Readiness to Inform Teaching (or AzMERIT).
