Schools are reporting that some AzMERIT tests contain an an item that has directions/information only but is being treated as a question. The reports are based on students bringing it to the attention of the Test Administrator of the session.
When students review to confirm they have responded to all questions, the system prompts that item as an unanswered question. Reports so far is it has only occurred in some versions of the math tests.
ADE’s response to the issue was:
“That is expected. There is no response requested or possible on that page.”
If/when it occurs with any of your students, the Test Administrator should advise the student to ignore the prompt and continue.
