AIMS Science Test Practice

AIMS Science Test Practice 
Arizona's Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) is a standardized test administered by the state of Arizona. AIMS is a standards based assessment aligned to the Arizona Academic Content Standards. The AIMS science test is given in the fourth and eight grades in Arizona. The science test is a multiple choice reading test that is based on science standards taught for all previous to testing years.
