AIMSweb is used to monitor and track students' progress as often as weekly.
Students in second grade take AIMSweb tests in reading and math.  For reading, students take 2 tests: Reading Maze and Reading Curriculum-Based Measurement (R-CBM).  For math students take 2 tests: Math Concepts and Applications (M-CAP) and Math Computation (M-Comp).  These are described below (some samples are from other grade levels).
Reading Maze - students read a passage for 3 minutes.  In places where there are 3 possible words, they need to select the word that correctly fits in the passage.  Click on the blue link for a sample passage from a first grade reading maze test.
Reading Curriculum-Based Measurement (R-CBM) - individually administered; assesses oral reading.  Students read from a passage for 1 minute.  Clicking on the blue link will take you to a sample oral reading passage for a first grader.
Math Concepts and Applications (M-CAP) - assesses basic math concepts in the areas of numbers and operations (base 10 and place value) and measurement (linear measurement and length).  Click on the blue link for a sample from the 2nd grade M-CAP.
  • Math Computation (M-Comp) - covers the following:
    • Size of numbers
    • Column addition
    • Basic facts
    • Complex computation
