AdultEd Online

Are you looking for a great resource for technology planning specific to adult education? Look no further. This website developed by Sacramento County Office of Education in conjunction with the University of Michigan provides tools that assess administrator and teacher skills for technology integration and distance teaching.


AIMSweb® is a scientifically based, formative assessment system that 'informs' the teaching and learning process by providing continuous student performance data and reporting improvement to parents, teachers, and administrators to enable evidence-based evaluation and data-driven instruction. The AIMSWeb software allows a teacher or school administrator to monitor the progress of students on an on-going basis, taking into consideration both the content of the learning and the rate of the learning. Both of those factors are essential to making a determination of eligibility for special education services under the RtI model. The system includes a detailed set of curriculum based goals that are sequenced to show exactly where a student is in the curriculum. The input and report systems are well designed and easy to use.
