Summary: Developed specifically to overcome problems with traditional standardized instruments--and widely used in both general and special education settings throughout the US--curriculum-based measurement (CBM) comprises brief assessment probes of reading, spelling, written expression, and mathematics that serve both to quantify student performance and to bolster academic achievement. Building on the basic concepts described in a previous volume, Curriculum-Based Measuremen ...show moret, this work presents new and enhanced assessment techniques and elaborates an advanced problem-solving model for use in educational evaluation and planning. Broadening the applications of CBM methodology, contributors discuss its implementation with diverse populations including preschoolers, members of cultural and linguistic minority groups, and secondary students. Special features include reproducible forms guiding decision-making about the reintegration of students from special to general education.
