1. Using Curriculum-Based Measurement for Progress Monitoring in Math Todd Busch Tracey Hall Pamela Stecker

2. Progress Monitoring • Progress monitoring (PM) is conducted frequently and designed to: • Estimate rates of student improvement. • Identify students who are not demonstrating adequate progress. • Compare the efficacy of different forms of instruction and design more effective, individualized instructional programs for problem learners.

3. What Is the Difference Between Traditional Assessments and Progress Monitoring? • Traditional Assessments: • Lengthy tests. • Not administered on a regular basis. • Teachers do not receive immediate feedback. • Student scores are based on national scores and averages and a teacher’s classroom may differ tremendously from the national student sample.

4. What Is the Difference Between Traditional Assessments and Progress Monitoring? • Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) is one type of PM. • CBM provides an easy and quick method for gathering student progress. • Teachers can analyze student scores and adjust student goals and instructional programs. • Student data can be compared to teacher’s classroom or school district data.

5. Curriculum-Based Assessment • Curriculum-Based Assessment (CBA): • Measurement materials are aligned with school curriculum. • Measurement is frequent. • Assessment information is used to formulate instructional decisions. • CBM is one type of CBA.

6. Progress Monitoring • Teachers assess students’ academic performance using brief measures on a frequent basis. • The main purposes are to: • Describe the rate of response to instruction. • Build more effective programs.

7. Focus of This Presentation Curriculum-Based Measurement The scientifically validated form of progress monitoring.

8. Teachers Use Curriculum-Based Measurement To . . . • Describe academic competence at a single point in time. • Quantify the rate at which students develop academic competence over time. • Build more effective programs to increase student achievement.

9. Curriculum-Based Measurement • The result of 30 years of research • Used across the country • Demonstrates strong reliability, validity, and instructional utility

10. Research Shows . . . • CBM produces accurate, meaningful information about students’ academic levels and their rates of improvement. • CBM is sensitive to student improvement. • CBM corresponds well with high-stakes tests. • When teachers use CBM to inform their instructional decisions, students achieve better.

11. Most Progress Monitoring: Mastery Measurement Curriculum-Based Measurement is NOT Mastery Measurement

12. Mastery Measurement: Tracks Mastery of Short-Term Instructional Objectives • To implement Mastery Measurement, the teacher: • Determines the sequence of skills in an instructional hierarchy. • Develops, for each skill, a criterion-referenced test.

19. Problems with Mastery Measurement • Hierarchy of skills is logical, not empirical. • Performance on single-skill assessments can be misleading. • Assessment does not reflect maintenance or generalization. • Assessment is designed by teachers or sold with textbooks, with unknown reliability and validity. • Number of objectives mastered does not relate well to performance on high-stakes tests.

20. Curriculum-Based Measurement Was Designed to Address These Problems An Example of Curriculum-Based Measurement: Math Computation

27. Sampling Performance on Year-Long Curriculum for Each Curriculum-Based Measurement . . . • Avoids the need to specify a skills hierarchy. • Avoids single-skill tests. • Automatically assesses maintenance/generalization. • Permits standardized procedures for sampling the curriculum, with known reliability and validity. • SO THAT: CBM scores relate well to performance on high-stakes tests.

28. Curriculum-Based Measurement’s Two Methods for Representing Year-Long Performance Method 1: • Systematically sample items from the annual curriculum (illustrated in Math CBM, just presented). Method 2: • Identify a global behavior that simultaneously requires the many skills taught in the annual curriculum (illustrated in Reading CBM, presented next).

29. Hypothetical Second Grade Reading Curriculum • Phonics • CVC patterns • CVCe patterns • CVVC patterns • Sight Vocabulary • Comprehension • Identification of who/what/when/where • Identification of main idea • Sequence of events • Fluency

30. Second Grade Reading Curriculum-Based Measurement • Each week, every student reads aloud from a second grade passage for 1 minute. • Each week’s passage is the same difficulty. • As a student reads, the teacher marks the errors. • Count number of words read correctly. • Graph scores.

31. Curriculum-Based Measurement • Not interested in making kids read faster. • Interested in kids becoming better readers. • The CBM score is an overall indicator of reading competence. • Students who score high on CBMs are better: • Decoders • At sight vocabulary • Comprehenders • Correlates highly with high-stakes tests.

33. What We Look for in Curriculum-Based Measurement Increasing Scores: • Student is becoming a better reader. Flat Scores: • Student is not profiting from instruction and requires a change in the instructional program.

44. Curriculum-Based Measurement • CBM is distinctive. • Each CBM test is of equivalent difficulty. • Samples the year-long curriculum. • CBM is highly prescriptive and standardized. • Reliable and valid scores.

45. The Basics of Curriculum-Based Measurement • CBM monitors student progress throughout the school year. • Students are given reading probes at regular intervals. • Weekly, biweekly, monthly • Teachers use student data to quantify short- and long-term goals that will meet end-of-year goals.

46. The Basics of Curriculum-Based Measurement • CBM tests are brief and easy to administer. • All tests are different, but assess the same skills and difficulty level. • CBM scores are graphed for teachers to use to make decisions about instructional programs and teaching methods for each student.

47. Curriculum-Based Measurement Research • CBM research has been conducted over the past 30 years. • Research has demonstrated that when teachers use CBM for instructional decision making: • Students learn more. • Teacher decision making improves. • Students are more aware of their performance.
