As a reading screening tool, Reading-CBM is utilized to identify children at-risk of reading failures and those students significantly below grade-level expectations.
As a progress monitoring tool, additional standardized, equivalent, and graded alternate forms are used to frequently measure student progress towards specific goals and monitor the effects of instructional changes
Reading-CBM is a 1 minute standardized measure of oral reading of graded passages to administer for individual students.
Raw score, percentile score, developmental benchmark scores (cut points and benchmarks), probability scores, and error analysis scores are available.
Raw scores are computed by computing the total number of works read correctly within the 1 minute time period. A raw score is also reported for the total number of errors (words read incorrectly). These data can be interpreted in a norm-referenced way via percentiles or categorically in a standard interpretive format (e.g., below average, average, above average, etc.). Scores are also interpreted by converting progress over time into a Rates of Improvement (ROI) index, typically derived by using an ordinary least squares regression line through the data. A composite score is not calculated.
Reading-CBM has 33 alternate forms available for each grade 2 through 8, and 20 alternate forms for grade 1.
