Students in grades 3-8 will participate in nationally normed assessments in the areas of literacy and math using the AIMSweb Plus assessment system. This form of brief assessment measures overall performance on key foundational skills at each grade level. These assessments will be administered in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. The results of the assessment are used to determine if students need additional assistance to increase academic success.
Appropriate academic interventions will be provided to students scoring below the expected level. Student progress will be monitored and documents using the AIMSweb Plus assessment. Progress monitoring supports goal-oriented, frequent data collection in order to inform instruction, measure student achievement, and determine the impact of student interventions.
