  1. aimswebPlus overview

  2. Why aimswebPlus? • Need for • More in-depth, standards-based, diagnostic reporting • Common Core alignment • Better information for instructional planning • Robust assessment of early reading skills • Progress monitoring measure of reading comprehension • Greater sensitivity to growth • Must continue to • Be brief • Provide a system for goal-setting and progress monitoring • Be easy to administer and interpret

  3. What is aimswebPlus? • New system of assessments, scheduled for release January 2015 • All the benefits of aimsweb, plus • Additional layer of CCSS-aligned, diagnostic assessment • Online testing for grades 2-12 (except oral fluency) • Instructionally relevant • Strengths and weaknesses by CCSS • Lexiles • Quantiles • Uses the new aimsweb reporting system—alternative subscription to the original aimsweb

  4. aimswebPlus structure • Screening/benchmark assessment—three times a year • Part 1: Maintains the unique qualities of brief, timed CBM • Efficient—1 to 10 minutes • Generalizable, predictive • Highly sensitive to change/growth • Part 2: Brief, diagnostic assessment • Aligned to Common Core • Untimed so students answer all items • Yields strengths/weaknesses; informs instruction and intervention • Administered online for grades 2+ • Total administration time 20-30 minutes • Progress monitoring—as frequently as weekly • Brief, timed CBM measures; “part 1” of the screening • 20 alternative forms per subject and grade level • Administered online for grades 2+

  7. aimswebPlus Early Literacy

  8. Phoneme Segmentation Revised The teachers says a word. The student says the individual phonemes, or sounds, of the word in the correct order. • Words chosen based on CCSS requirements • Untimed easier to administerand score.

  9. aimswebPlus Reading

  10. Passage Comprehension Comprehension content and questions were designed to: • measure understanding of informational and literary text • meet a range of CCSS expectations • assess essential literal/recall and higher-level inferential questions about text on grade level The passages • Informational Text – 50% • Literary Text – 50% • All questions reflect CCSS • Vocabulary in context • Leveled using Pearson’s Reading Maturity Metric

  11. Comprehension Fluency New • New attempt to assess comprehension-based silent reading rate in an ecologically valid and psychometrically sound way • Objectives for the Comprehension Fluency test: • Force the student to try to understand the gist of realistic text as he or she reads. • Use very easy comprehension questions • Purpose of the test is not to measure ability to comprehend • Purpose of the questions is to make the student pay attention • Student doesn’t know what the question will be about, so he/she has to try to understand the entire text • Computer-administered • Correlate well with unspeeded reading comprehension • Sensitive to growth (like Oral Reading) demo

  15. aimswebPlus Early Numeracy Early Numeracy PM measures • Kindergarten: Emphasis on quantity and cardinality • Number Naming – thru 20 • Quantity Total • Quantity Match (W, S only) • Grade 1: emphasis on addition/subtraction facts • Number Comparison • Math Facts • Mental Computation (W, S only)

  16. aimswebPlus Math Concepts & Applications • K through Grade 8 • Measures concept knowledge and problem solving skills • Items written to assess Common Core State Standards • Grades 2 – 8: Online testing; 30 multiple-choice items per form • K & 1: individual administration with paper or tablet/handheld digital record form; 25 items per grade; Multiple Choice & short response • 3 forms (Fall, Winter, Spring) per grade • Vertically scaled in grades 2 – 8 • Total score is designed to provide an estimate of math achievement and to contribute to the prediction of student performance on the end-of-year state tests
