K12 assessment and data management system upgrades

Pearson announced at FETC 2013 the new aimsweb, the next generation of the system that integrates assessment, data management and reporting. 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 offers a new user interface, data-based guidance and feedback for interpreting that data.

Assessments in aimsweb are:

§ Brief: most assessments take 1–4 minutes to complete
§ Predictive: provide 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
§Suitable with any curriculum or standards, including the Common Core State Standards
