STAGE 1:  Reading/Early Literacy & Math Abilities

aimswebPlus Reading (2-7)/Early Literacy (K-1) & aimswebPlus Math

aimswebPlus™ is an online assessment, data management, and reporting system that provides national and local performance and growth norms for the screening and progress monitoring of math and reading skills for all students in Kindergarten through Grade 8 (Users can roster Pre-K and High school (9-12) and test off level as well). aimswebPlus uses two types of measures: curriculum-based measures (CBMs)—brief, timed measures of fluency on essential basic skills—and standards-based assessments (SBAs), which are comprehensive measures aligned to current learning standards. By combining these two types of measures, aimswebPlus provides the data that schools need for program planning and evaluation and for tiered assessment (multi-tiered system of supports [MTSS], also known as response to intervention [RTI]). Furthermore, aimswebPlus data provides teachers/specialists with the information needed to determine who will benefit from intensive intervention. aimswebPlus is used for benchmarking, universal screening, diagnosing strengths and weaknesses in Reading and Math, and for progress monitoring
