New aimsweb, Available in Fall 2013 Features State-of-the-Art Student Interface

ORLANDO -- Jan. 30, 2013 – Improving student performance to ensure that all students graduate prepared for success in college and career is mission critical for today's schools. Today at FETC 2013, Pearson announced the new aimsweb, the next generation of the powerful system that integrates assessment, data management and reporting and provides decision-making tools for achieving this important goal. Available fall 2013, the new aimsweb is student-centric, intuitive, data-driven and dynamic.

Designed for universal screening and progress monitoring, aimsweb supports Response to Intervention and tiered instruction. The new aimsweb features the brief, predictive, accurate assessments educators have come to rely on—with the power of a brand new user interface. In addition to a completely new look and feel, the new aimsweb puts the information teachers and administrators need at their fingertips and provides data-based guidance and feedback for interpreting that data. Alerts easily identify appropriate actions; the most important screens and information are available with a simple hover or a click; and reports are rich, clear and dynamic, answering questions about goals and student growth.

"Fundamental to keeping all students on track for graduation and success in college and career is having access to a constant measure of their progress so that teachers can intervene before they lag behind -- not after," said Julie Page, Director of aimsweb product and services. "The new aimsweb revolutionizes this process by putting data and tools for continuous measurement and monitoring of performance right at teachers' fingertips in an easy-to-use, intuitive interface that they can access from their desktop, laptop or iPad."

At the foundation of aimsweb is general outcome measurement, a form of curriculum-based measurement, used for universal screening and progress monitoring. This form of brief assessment measures overall performance of key foundational skills at each grade level and draws upon more than 30 years of scientific research that demonstrates both its versatility to provide accurate prediction of reading and math achievement as well as its sensitivity to growth. This data is delivered through a brand new, state-of-the-art interface, featuring dynamic and interactive screens, and hovers that allow teachers to quickly access more information about a student or task.

Assessments in aimsweb are:

§ Brief: most assessments take 1–4 minutes to complete

§ Predictive: provide accurate predictions of reading and math achievement

§ Sensitive to improvement: an increase in ability will be reflected in rising scores on the measure – ideal for showing growth

§ Easy to administer and score

§ Valid measures of skills that are central to the domain being measured (reading, math, language arts)

§ Standardized and reliable: produce consistent results across time or testing conditions

§ Suitable with any curriculum or standards, including the Common Core State Standards

aimsweb provides instructional recommendations for a variety of Pearson curriculum products to help target effective instruction after assessments are given, such as Reading Street and My Sidewalks, enVisionMATH and focusMATH, Prentice Hall Literature and Mathematics, SuccessMaker Mathematics, digits®, KeyMath-3 Essential Resources; and Cornerstone, Keystone and Language Central for English Language Learners (ELL).
