Fact Sheet: Benefits of Curriculum Based Measurement
McLane, Kathleen
National Center on Student Progress Monitoring
As a part of the increasing emphasis among schools on meeting important statewide academic goals, schools are focusing more closely on the progress of individual students. Parents have a similar goal--to monitor the progress of their child. Frequent student progress monitoring accomplishes this common goal, in that it is used to track the progress of individual students in a way that is easily communicated. This fact sheet describes the best-known method of student progress monitoring--Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM)--a method that also enables teachers to select the teaching methods that work best with the individual child. (Contains 1 figure and 1 example.)
