Using the Data

From AIMSweb

To view your students’ scores:

  • Click on “My Classes” tab

  • The current Benchmark period will display by default.

  • To go back and view previous benchmarking data, use the ‘timeframe’ drop down menu and click the benchmarking time period you want.

  • Then click the ‘Go’ button to select.

  • Use the gray sub-tabs to choose the specific measure that you want to view.

    • AIMSweb TEL - Early Literacy

    • AIMSweb TEN - Early Numeracy

    • Reading - Reading Fluency (R-CBM) & MAZE

    • Mathematics - Computation (M-COMP) and Concepts & Applications (M-CAP)

Report Types

  • Class Distribution by Scores and Percentile Report. This report will list your students from highest to the lowest in a single area. This will give you the “Rainbow Chart”.

  • This will give you the “Rainbow Chart” in all measures for a given area (such as reading, mathematics, early literacy, or early numeracy)

Report Types


    • Available for some measures.

    • Will provide instructional recommendations from Pearson materials.


  • You can compare your students to students within your school or to national norms.

  • To choose national norms, pull up a report.

    • Beside Report Options, click on “Expand.”

    • Then click on Criterion.

    • Using the drop-down menu, choose “National (area) 2010-2011


  • Use the green back button to go back. (When it is present, always use it, not the back browser button)

  • E-Mail button allows you to email the report to someone.

  • PDF button makes the report a PDF. Before printing, make the report a PDF.

Individual Student Reports

  • Before looking at individual student reports, review the norm tables and growth rates.

  • These growth rates will help you determine if students who are below average are growing at a rate that will catch them up with their peers.

  • On the individual student reports, the student’s growth rate will be reported as his or her rate of improvement.

Aggregate Norm Table

  • To find the growth rates, you look at the aggregate norm table.

  • Directions for locating the aggregate norm table can be found on the AIMSweb wiki, under support materials.


Finding the individual student reports.

  • To view all measures in a particular area (such as early literacy, early numeracy, reading, math) to see if the student is growing, click on “Report” under the column Pathway for that student.

  • To view a student’s rate of improvement in a particular measure, click on the student’s score for that measure.

How to look for growth

  • This student is growing in computation, but has not had any growth in concepts & applications.

  • However, even though the student is growing in computation, the student is still below average

  • This report was obtain, by clicking on the word “Report” under the pathway column.

Looking at same student further in computation by clicking on the student’s computation score.

  • Here we see the student is growing, but is still below average.

  • If you look at the table below the chart, you can find at what rate this student is growing.

  • This student is growing at 0.4 pts a week. However, looking at the growth rates (see the slide), the average student grows at 0.8 pts. per week.

  • At this rate, this student will continue to get further and further behind.

Now What?

  • After looking at your students’ reports, things to consider include:

    • Students who are below average and are not growing at a faster rate than their peers need an intervention plan, if they do not already have one.

    • If the student already has an intervention plan, then the intensity of the interventions need to be increased.

Additional things to consider

  • How can you differentiate instruction for students who are above average, but are not growing?

  • What circumstances may have caused a student’s growth to decline, for a student who has a downward growth line?

  • Is there additional data that is needed to determine the student’s needs? Look at the Comprehensive Assessment Plan on the AIMSWeb wiki.
