The ABCs of CBM: A Practical Guide to Curriculum-Based Measurement. Practical Intervention in the Schools Series
Hosp, Michelle K.; Hosp, John L.; Howell, Kenneth W.
This pragmatic, accessible book presents an empirically supported conceptual framework and hands-on instructions for conducting curriculum-based measurement (CBM) in grades K-8. The authors provide everything needed to evaluate student learning in reading, spelling, writing, and math; graph the resulting data; and use this information to make sound instructional decisions, plan interventions, and monitor progress. The role of CBM within a response-to-intervention model is also explained. Every chapter includes helpful answers to frequently asked questions, and the appendices contain over 20 reproducible administration and scoring guides, forms, and planning checklists. The large-size format and layflat binding facilitate photo copying and day-to-day use. This book contains the following nine chapters: (1) What Is CBM and Why Should I Do It?; (2) CBM for Assessment and Problem Solving; (3) How to Conduct Reading CBM; (4) How to Conduct Early Reading CBM; (5) How to Conduct Spelling CBM, with Tessie Rose; (6) How to Conduct Writing CBM, with Tessie Rose; (7) How to Conduct Math CBM; (8) Charting and Graphing Data to Help Make Decisions; and (9) Planning to Use CBM--and Keeping It Going. The following are appended: (1) Summary of Validity and Reliability Studies for CBM; and (2) Reproducible Quick Guides and Forms for Conducting CBM.
