Using a Curriculum-Based Measurement Graphic Organizer to Facilitate Collaboration in Reading
Capizzi, Andrea McArthur; Barton-Arwood, Sally M.
Intervention in School and Clinic, v45 n1 p14-23 2009
Curriculum-based measurement (CBM) is a useful tool for both general and special educators to evaluate and improve student achievement. Although it is backed by more than 30 years of research and validation, particularly in reading, many teachers still do not use CBM in their classrooms. Historically, the use of CBM to guide instructional changes is more familiar to special education teachers than to general education teachers. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of CBM, along with a graphic organizer worksheet, to help teachers get started with using CBM in reading. First, CBM and its relationship to response to intervention (RTI) are discussed. Second, challenges to the use of CBM are addressed, and instructions for using the graphic organizer worksheet are provided. Finally, strategies are suggested to facilitate the use of CBM to enhance collaboration among general and special education teachers. (Contains 1 table and 4 figures.)
