Progress monitoring involves ongoing data collection on skills that are important to student success
in order to alter instructional variables to better meet the needs of individual students.
Thus, teachers may use progress monitoring to design more effective, individualized instructional programs for struggling learners.
CBM is a scientifically validated form of student progress monitoring that incorporates standard methods for test development and administration and for data utilization.
