Your child is bringing home a copy of his/her AIMSweb report. AIMSweb assessments are given to students in grades K-6, and they are typically administered three times per year (fall, winter & spring).

Letter Naming Fluency - Students name as many letters (in random order) as possible in one minute.
Letter Sound Fluency - Students provide the sounds that letters make during a one minute time.
Phoneme Segmentation - Students are given words orally and asked to segment the words into individual letter sounds. Example: (rat – r-a-t)
Nonsense Word Fluency - Students are asked to provide the sounds or read nonsense words for one minute (naf, gop, etc.).
