The winter window for benchmark testing is January 1-30.
Here is what should be tested at each grade level for Aimsweb. KPBSD Benchmark Testing Schedule_v3
I have also included a link to a quick chart on the TEN and TEL errors TEN and TEL Error Charts as well as the PDF’s on testing and scoring The New Aimsweb 2_test and scoring, The New Aimsweb 2_National Norms and reporting in the New Aimsweb 2.0.
Please take a moment to look over these documents as they contain all of the information you will need for benchmark testing. Scores for Aimsweb are expected to be entered in by January 30th. (Please do not wait until then to log into Aimsweb.)
If you cannot get into Aimsweb you must go through the forgot password process. If your class list in Aimsweb is not correct please let your school interventionist know or the person at your school who has access to the google doc for adding students. If you do not have an assigned interventionist this will most likely be your I-team coordinator or your principal.
*If you do not have an interventionist please check with your principal to see if they can answer your question or direct you to a person in your building before emailing Michael Hanson.
Log into Aimsweb before December 17, 2014 https://aimsweb2.pearson.com/flex/AIMSwebFrontOffice.html
- If you lost your password you must go through the forgot password process. No one else can reset it for you.

- *When communicating about your class list to your interventionist, I-team coordinator or principal you must include:

Please click on the hyperlinks below to see the two new useful documents for your I-team to utilize as they determine interventions for students in all grades for reading and math.
The Reading Error Analysis Intervention Guide will help your I-team narrow/define the student deficit and lists specific choices to target the deficit that are available in our district for providing intervention. Please see the Reading Intervention Description Matrix (on the intervention webpage) for a more detailed description of the programs and links to the what works clearinghouse effectiveness reports. Not all schools will have every resource listed. This is a list containing suggestions that you may have access to in your building and provides direct instruction strategies as well.
The K-12 Math intervention_Core-Tier III document provides a framework to present what intervention can look like at the different grade levels and the different tiers of intervention. This is the first time this has been defined to this detail and has valuable information to help guide math intervention.
The RTI committee has worked hard to ensure that these documents and strategies will be applicable to all grade levels.
Please take a few minutes to look over the new documents. These are great resources to have on hand at each I-team meeting.
These will be posted under the resources heading on the Intervention Webpage.
