aimswebPlus overview 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 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 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+ Grade Paper Measure BBS Common Core State Standards Area Time original aimsweb assessments F K W S x x x Print Concepts Letter Naming 1 min x Phonological Awareness Phonemic Segmentation 1 min x x x Phonics Letter Sounds 1 min x x x Word Recognition & Fluency Nonsense Words 1 min x x x MAZE 3 min F 1 W x x x x S 2 3 4 5 6 7 8-12 x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x Language: Vocabulary Acquisition & Use x Comprehension & Fluency Oral Reading 1-3 min x x x Screening admin time 2-4 min 2-3 min 3 min 3 min 3 min 3 min 3 min 3 min 3 min Progress monitoring admin time 1-4 min 1-3 min 1-3 min 1-3 min 1-3 min 1-3 min 1-3 min 1-3 min 1-3 min Grade OSA Measure BBS Common Core State Standards Area Time aimswebPlus assessments F K W S x F 1 W S 2 3 4 5 6 7 8-12 Print Concepts 2 min x x Letter Naming 1 min x x x Initial Sounds 2 min x x x Phoneme Segmentation 1 min x x x x Phonics Letter/Word Sounds 1 min x x x x Word Recognition & Fluency High Frequency Words 1 min x x x x x Auditory Vocabulary 5 min x x x x x Vocabulary 5 min x x x x x x x x Passage Comprehension 20 min x x x x x x x x Comprehension Fluency 5 min x x x x x x Print Concepts Phonological Awareness Language: Vocabulary Acquisition & Use Comprehension & Fluency Oral Reading 1-3 min x x x x x x x x x x x x x Screening admin time 9-10 min 8-11 min 28 min 28 min 30 min 30 min 30 min 30 min 30 min Progress monitoring admin time 1-5 min 1-3 min 1 min 1 min 1-5 min 1-5 min 1-5 min 1-5 min 1-5 min Phoneme Segmentation 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 administer and score. Revised 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 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 Grade Paper Measure BBS Common Core State Standards Area Time original aimsweb assessments F K W S F 1 W S Counting & cardinality Oral Counting 1 min x x x x x x x Number awareness Number Identification 1 min x x x x x x x Quantity Discrimination 1 min x x x x x x x Missing Number 1 min x x x x x x x Computation M-COMP 8 min x x x x Problem solving M-CAP 8-10 min x 2 3 4 5 6 7 8-12 x x x x x x x x x x x x x x 16 min 16 min 16 min 16 min 16 min 18 min 18 min Number sense Screening admin time Progress monitoring admin time 4 min 12 min 1-4 min 1-8 min 8-16 min 8-16 min 8-16 min 8-16 min 8-16 min 8-18 min 8-18 min Grade OSA Measure BBS Common Core State Standards Area Time aimswebPlus assessments F K W S x x x x x Quantity Total 1 min x Quantity Match 1 min x Number ID 1 min x x x x Number Comparison 1 min x x x x Number Triads 3 min Math Facts 1 min x 1 min x F 1 W S x x x 2 3 4 5 6 7 8-12 x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x Counting & cardinality Number awareness Number sense Computation x x x x x x x x x Mental Computation 4 min Problem solving (3-5 items per CCSS domain) 10 min x x x x x x x x Concepts & Applications 20 min x Screening admin time Progress monitoring admin time 14-16 min 13 min 28 min 28 min 28 min 28 min 28 min 28 min 28 min 1-2 min 1-2 min 3-7 min 3-7 min 3-7 min 3-7 min 3-7 min 3-7 min 3-7 min 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) 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;
