I think that the AIMS test is a misrepresentation of the knowledge of students. Teachers are given a curriculum to teach each year, and each year, more things are added to the curriculum. Students are not getting time to fully understand a subject. By the time that they do understand it, it is already too late.
In order to get the passing percentage on the AIMS test up, the teachers and school districts need to find a curriculum that gives students enough time to learn and fully understand a subject and also give the students a well-rounded education.
