Our Curriculum-Based Measures (CBM) are highly sensitive to growth over brief periods. We offer Common Core-aligned CBM measures with online scoring and automated skills analysis. We continually conduct cutting-edge R&D to create valid, reliable tests that provide better data, sensible reports, and actionable results.
earlyReading, available in English and Spanish, is designed to screen and monitor K-1 students, yet may be administered to older students as needed. Of twelve sub-tests total, four key sub-tests derived from the latest research are suggested per benchmark period—fall, winter, spring—varying over time. They provide a trusted, insightful composite score indicating students’ readiness or risk. See more>>
|CBMreading (Curriculum-Based Measurement for Reading) is a simple, efficient, evidence-based assessment used for universal screening in grades 1 through 6, and progress monitoring for grades 1-12 in English or Spanish. A teacher listens and evaluates a student’s performance, including accuracy, error types, and qualitative features, while they read aloud from a grade-level passage for 1 minute. See more>>|
|earlyMath is designed to screen and monitor PK-1 students, yet may be administered to older students as needed. Of eight sub-tests total, select combinations of up to four sub-tests are recommended per benchmark period—fall, winter, spring—varying over time. They provide a trusted, insightful composite score indicating students’ readiness or risk. See more>>|
|CBMmath (Curriculum-Based Measurement for Math) is designed to universally screen students in grades 1-8, or progress monitor students through grade 12. The data indicate students’ readiness or risk across key math skill areas, such as computation, math concepts, and math applications. See more>>|

|AUTOreading emerged from many years of research as a fully automated, computer administered measure of decoding, word identification, and comprehension for use to screen and monitor student progress across grade levels K-12. AUTOreading includes eight individual testlets of 30 items, with one to four testlets recommended per grade level, to measure students’ accuracy and automaticity. See more>>|
