Abcs of CBM : a Practical Guide To Curriculum-based Measurement (06 Edition)by Michelle K. Hosp
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
Michelle and John Hosp (special education, University of Utah) and Kenneth Howell (Western Washington University) explain how to administer and score curriculum-based measures for testing reading, spelling, writing, and math skills among primary school students, and suggest techniques for monitoring student performance and progress. The appendices contain reproducible administration and scoring guides for each CBM skill. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
This pragmatic, accessible book presents an empirically supported conceptual framework and hands-on instructions for conducting curriculum-based measurement (CBM) in grades K-8. The authors provide the tools needed to assess student learning in reading, spelling, writing, and math, and to graph the resulting data. The role of CBM in systematic instructional problem solving is explained. Every chapter includes helpful answers to frequently asked questions, and the appendices contain over 20 reproducible administration and scoring guides, forms, and planning checklists. The large-size format and lay-flat binding facilitate photocopying and day-to-day use.
See also The ABCs of Curriculum-Based Evaluation: A Practical Guide to Effective Decision Making, by John L. Hosp, Michelle K. Hosp, Kenneth W. Howell, and Randy Allison, which presents a broader problem-solving model that utilizes CBM.
