AIMS Web Winter Benchmarking Results 2021
Dear Spring Brook Families,
During the week of March 22nd, results from our recent AimswebPlus winter benchmarking will be shared. Students that attend in person will receive a paper copy of results in their backpacks. For families with remote students, you will receive an emailed copy.
The benchmark testing was completed in January and February. These brief Illinois Learning Standards aligned assessments evaluate academic performance and growth in the areas of early literacy/reading and early numeracy/mathematics. These assessment results are used by teachers and administrators to assist with instructional planning and differentiation at the grade, classroom, and student level. Depending on grade level, literacy measures assess vocabulary, phonological awareness, word recognition, reading comprehension, and reading fluencyâ€” and numeracy measures assess number sense, operations, algebraic thinking, measurement/data, geometry, fractions, and ratios/proportions. These areas of performance are summarized in an overall early literacy/reading and early numeracy/mathematics score.
Please note that the average range extends from the 16th to 84th percentile rankâ€” variations in your child’s score should be interpreted in the context of other indicators of academic performance including daily classroom work, teacher observation, historic academic performance, etc.
