Curriculum Based Measurement (CBM)
Curriculum Based Measurement – A type of
curriculum-based assessment characterized by
frequent and direct measurement of critical school
behaviors. They are often 1-4 minute samples of
reading, math and writing skills.
CBMs are a
GENERAL OUTCOME MEASURES
Like taking a temperatureOr getting a blood pressure
Or standing on a scale
These are all QUICK measures that may signal the
need for more detailed diagnostic measures. We
don’t need MRIs for all students!
