Pearson Previews Future of Assessment and Data Management at ISTE 2012June 25, 2012
New aimsweb, Slated for 2013 Launch, Features Intuitive Interface With Easy-to-Use
SAN DIEGO – June 25, 2012 – Today at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) 2012 Conference, Pearson will give attendees a first look at the next generation of aimsweb®, its powerful web-based universal screening, progress monitoring and data management system that supports Response to Intervention (RTI) and tiered instruction. Launching in fall 2013, the new aimsweb is student-centric, intuitive, data-driven and dynamic.
Designed specifically to universally screen and monitor student progress, aimsweb uses brief, valid and reliable General Outcome Measures of reading and math performance for grades K-12 that can be used with any curriculum. Teachers monitor the progress of students over time, determine the effectiveness of their instruction and interventions, and manage student assessment data – all through one seamless online system.
“Educators have used aimsweb to monitor student growth and identify appropriate interventions that have helped millions of students around the country get back on the path to academic success,” said Carol Watson, president, Pearson’s Clinical Assessment business. “Feedback from these educators was central to the development of the new aimsweb. We conducted in-depth research with teachers and administrators and, based on their input, the new aimsweb offers the
same strong support for universal screening, progress monitoring and data management, with a completely new interface that will make using the system an even easier and more effective experience.”
In the new aimsweb, data are organized around students, including a dashboard and alerts that easily identify appropriate actions. The most important screens and information are at teachers’ fingertips. The new aimsweb is also streamlined through a state-of-the-art interface. It operates easily like the websites and other technology that teachers use on a daily basis. Reports are rich, clear and dynamic, answering questions about goals and student growth.
Attendees of this year’s ISTE conference can stop by the Pearson booth, 3513, to learn more about the new aimsweb, including in-booth presentations, demos and informational handouts.
