easyCBM® Reading Criterion Related Validity Evidence: Grades 2-5. Technical Report #1310
Lai, Cheng-Fei; Alonzo, Julie; Tindal, Gerald
Behavioral Research and Teaching
In this technical report, we present the results of a study to gather criterion-related evidence for Grade 2-5 easyCBM® reading measures. We used correlations to examine the relation between the easyCBM® measures and other published measures with known reliability and validity evidence, including the Gates-MacGinitie Reading Tests and the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS). Across grades, the correlation between easyCBM® vocabulary and comprehension-based measures and comparator measures ranged from low to moderate (rs = 0.39-0.76), and the correlation between the easyCBM® fluency-based measures and DIBELS ORF was consistently strong (r > 0.80).
