Proven technology

aimswebPlus was designed by educational experts and has undergone a stringent development and standardization process. The system uses proven, standards-based assessments to screen and monitor student performance with real-time data collection and on-demand reporting. Its secure, web-based system can be integrated with student information systems for ease of access. 

These assessments are built upon brief, valid, and reliable skill measures.

aimswebPlus Canadian Edition resides on Canadian servers.


We value our teachers’ dedication to students. Large Canadian class sizes often mean scarce resources and little time to monitor student achievement. To assist with the demands of accommodations in learning, aimswebPlus Canadian Edition is teacher-driven for flexibility in assessment practices, and can be used to quickly screen and monitor student progress at any point in the assessment cycle. The regular use of this platform encourages quick and easy administration, accurate results and personalized learning.


Universal Screening

Universal screening—benchmarking for student reading & literacy abilities—makes it possible to accurately measure student and classroom performance and identify students at risk for literacy gaps or reading difficulties—including dyslexia—all within a single class period. For most students, a battery of multiple brief measures is used for universal screening. These standards-based measures are designed to measure essential knowledge and skills as efficiently as possible. The multi-measure battery provides student and classroom profiles of strengths and weaknesses to tailor instruction to the needs of all students.


Progress monitoring

Because aimswebPlus Canadian Edition measures are designed with sensitivity to detect change, the scores reflect progress that can occur over relatively short intervals. Progress monitoring enables more frequent assessment to track individualized rate of improvement, and documents each student’s response to instructional changes. Curriculum-based measures that are used for progress monitoring are quick to administer, simple to score, and are regularly delivered to provide continuous student progress data.


aimswebPlus provides comprehensive reporting for each screening and monitoring component. Each report highlights both performance and progress—enabling educators to make informed decisions about students and instruction. Reports include data for students, classrooms, grades, schools, and districts, as well as student norms at the local and district level. Reports include data for students, classrooms, grades, schools, and districts, as well as student norms and at the school/district level. Student reports can be generated in either HTML or PDF format, and can be filtered to display the precise data needed. The level of information available on each report is based on the user’s role and access level. Parent-friendly screening and progress monitoring results are also available.

Areas of Assessment:

aimswebPlus Canadian helps to evaluate a wide range of needs for students such as reading letters, alphabetic principle, phonics, listening comprehension, vocabulary, phonics skills, oral reading, and spelling. These tasks are categorized into benchmarking and progress monitoring measures within literacy, including:

The Shaywitz DyslexiaScreen™ —an optional add-on to aimswebPlus—puts the power of reliable and efficient dyslexia screenings directly into the hands of educators using aimswebPlus.

Created by Dr. Sally Shaywitz—a global leader in dyslexia—Shaywitz DyslexiaScreen emphasizes phonological, linguistic, and academic performance based on teacher observations providing an evidence-based, user-friendly observational rating scale for grades K–2. It is intended for mass screenings to sort students—those at risk and those not at risk for dyslexia—quickly. The data can be used to set direction for intervention and instructional planning for all students.
