earlyReading, available in English and Spanish, is designed to screen and monitor PreK-1 students, yet may be administered to older students as needed. Of 12 subtests, four key subtests 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 1-8, 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 one minute. See more>> 

CBMcomp (Curriculum-Based Measurement for Comprehension) is an optional add on to CBMreading passages for grades 1-8 for screening and progress monitoring.
