Curriculum-based measurement Reading (CBM-R) is an assessment procedure used to evaluate students' relative performance compared to peers and to evaluate their growth in reading. Within the response to intervention (RtI) model, CBM-R data are plotted in time series fashion as a means modeling individual students' response to varying levels of instruction and the interpretation of these data is used as a source of information for making special education eligibility decisions. While substantial evidence exist demonstrating the reliability and validity of CBM-R procedures from a classical test theory (CTT) perspective, little evidence exist demonstrating the quality of CBM-R from a behavioral assessment perspective. This paper discusses (a) the necessity of evaluating CBM-R from a behavioral assessment perspective and (b) those studies which have evaluated CBM-R from a perspective other CTT, and (c) recommendations for future research.
