Ask the majority of teachers what they need more of, and the resounding answer is almost always “time”. Between lesson planning, daily instruction, and grading, you are already maxed out, and often find yourself burning the midnight oil trying to keep up with classroom demands. When you factor in students with behavior or learning challenges, those demands become exponentially greater.
Unfortunately, without proper resources, many teachers are leaving the profession due to burnout, and the students who need the most help are falling through the cracks.
Research has found that early identification of at-risk students leads to increased success — both in and out of the classroom. That being said, adding the task of screening each child for reading and math skills, behavior issues, and dyslexia—not to mention individualizing their instruction and tracking and reporting their progress — adds an even greater burden to the growing demands on your time.
aimsweb™Plus provides benchmarking and progress monitoring for K–8 foundational reading and math skills, as well as screeners for dyslexia and behavior.
Using aimswebPlus, schools can now identify and group at-risk students early, monitor and report student progress, and predict performance on grade-level expectations.
The system builds upon brief, valid, and reliable measures of foundational skills in reading and math by adding standards-based assessments useful for instructional planning. The system goes even further by providing a teacher-friendly system for dyslexia and behavior screening.
aimswebPlus helps you to manage the entire assessment cycle—fall, winter, and spring benchmarking—identifying the students that are at risk of falling through the cracks, then monitoring their progress weekly.
An intuitive user interface and immediate results will help you quickly plan individualized teaching and interventions while preserving valuable classroom instruction time.
