A Pilot Study for Standardizing Curriculum-Based Measurement Oral Reading Fluency (CBM ORF) in Arabic
Abu-Hamour, Bashir
Journal of the International Association of Special Education, v15 n1 p16-26 Spr 2014
This study examined the psychometric proprieties of the Arabic version of the Curriculum-Based Measurement Oral Reading Fluency (CBM ORF) for Jordanian students. A sample of 200 students (six to eight years old) was recruited from four public primary schools in Jordan. Results indicated that the CBM ORF had adequate reliability and validity indicators. In addition, CBM ORF was a good predictor of Arabic language Grade Point Average. Moreover, students who were struggling with reading scored significantly lower on CBM ORF probes than their peers without disabilities. Results suggest that the CBM ORF measures may be applicable to evaluating reading performance in Arabic.
