Winter AIMSweb Assessment
February 4, 2021
Dear Gregory Families,
This email is to make you aware of an important upcoming testing date and schedule. To enable us to assess all remote only students, Monday, February 22, 2021 will be an asynchronous learning day for hybrid students. Please read carefully to determine which applies to your child.
DATE: Monday, February 22, 2021
NAME OF ASSESSMENT: Winter AIMSwebPlus
ATTENDANCE: All Gregory students (Hybrid and Remote) will begin their day at 8:00 AM by logging into their first period class for attendance- this is a typical Monday procedure for students.
After attendance, hybrid students will log out of their attendance zoom and continue their remote learning Monday asynchronously. Hybrid students will be given tasks and/or reminders through their individual google classroom websites of work that can be completed independently. All hybrid students will complete the AIMSwebPlus assessment while in person. Most will be completed prior to Feb 22,2021.
FULL REMOTE STUDENTS:
After attendance, remote students will be given directions to continue their day by completing the winter AIMSwebPlus benchmarking-remotely.
6th and 7th graders will be testing with their first period teacher.
8th graders will be testing with their fifth period teacher.
Testing will take approximately two hours but plenty of time has been allocated for completion.
TESTING IN THE REMOTE ENVIRONMENT:
Students will log into zoom with their testing teacher. The teacher will provide directions on accessing the AIMSwebPlus testing link and how to get signed on to their individual accounts.
REMOTE TESTING-STUDENT EXPECTATIONS:
Students- please be sure your chromebook is charged prior to the assessment.
Students will need headphones or earbuds for testing.
To complete the testing, students must have their camera and audio on. If cameras are turned off, the testing program will exit them from the system and their test will be voided.
Students are not to receive any kind of help during the assessments.
As we do with all school work, we expect our students to demonstrate academic integrity. The results of this assessment will be used to guide curriculum decisions and better support students with their academic growth. Unreliable results will inhibit our ability to plan instruction appropriately.
