Assessment & Testing
AIMSweb is a universal screening, progress monitoring, and data management system that supports our Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) and tiered instruction. AIMSweb uses brief, valid, and reliable measures of reading and math performance, which can be generalized to any curriculum.
Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP) are assessments that measure growth, project proficiency on state assessments, and inform how educators differentiate instruction, evaluate programs, and structure curriculum. Computer adaptive MAP assessments reveal precisely which academic skills and concepts the student has acquired and what they’re ready to learn. MAP assessments are grade independent and adapt to each student’s instructional level.
Beginning with the 2014-15 school year, a new kindergarten readiness assessment will replace the KRA-L. The new assessment includes ways for teachers to measure a child’s school readiness. Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards (birth to kindergarten entry) are the basis for the new assessment. It has six components: social skills (including social and emotional development, and approaches toward learning), mathematics, science, social studies, language and literacy, and physical well-being and motor development.
