**The ABCs of CBM for Math, Spelling, & Writing**Michelle Hosp, Ph.D.**Objectives**• Overview of Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) • Review CBM measures in: math, spelling, and writing (including writing IEP goals and objectives) • Cover criteria for progress monitoring in math and spelling • Provide information on where to obtain measures for math, spelling, and writing**CBM Research**• CBM research has been conducted over the past 25+ years • Research has demonstrated that when teachers use CBM for instructional decision making: • Students learn more • Teacher decision making improves • Students are more aware of their performance**Different Types of CBA**Mastery Measurement General Outcome Measurement**Salient Features ofMastery Measurement**• Curriculum is broken down into specific subskills or short-term instructional objectives • Assess specific skill that is being taught Example • Multidigit addition, with regrouping • Skills usually assessed using teacher-made tests or tests in curriculum**Multidigit addition with regrouping**• Multidigit subtraction with regrouping • Multiplication facts, factors to 9 • Multiply 2-digit numbers by a 1-digit number • Multiply 2-digit numbers by a 2-digit number • Division facts, divisors to 9 • Divide 2-digit numbers by a 1-digit number • Divide 3-digit numbers by a 1-digit number • Add/subtract simple fractions, like denominators • Add/subtract whole number and mixed number Fourth Grade Math Computation Curriculum**Mastery of 4th Grade Math**Multidigit + with regrouping Multidigit - with regrouping Multiplication facts to 9**Multidigit addition with regrouping**• Multidigit subtraction with regrouping • Multiplication facts, factors to 9 • Multiply 2-digit numbers by a 1-digit number • Multiply 2-digit numbers by a 2-digit number • Division facts, divisors to 9 • Divide 2-digit numbers by a 1-digit number • Divide 3-digit numbers by a 1-digit number • Add/subtract simple fractions, like denominators • Add/subtract whole number and mixed number Fourth Grade Math Computation Curriculum**Mastery of 4th Grade Math**Multidigit + with regrouping Multidigit - with regrouping Multiplication facts to 9**Downsides to Mastery Measurement**• Skill Hierarchies • Teacher-Made Tests • Reliability & Validity are unknown • Retention & generalizationof skills are not usually measured • Measurement of Short-Term Instructional Objectives • Measurement shifts occur making it difficult to monitor overall progress because: • different skills are measured at different points in time • different skills are not of equal difficulty and do not represent equal curriculum units**Most Forms of Classroom Assessment Are MasteryMeasurement**CBM is NOT Mastery Measurement CBM is a General Outcome Measure**Fourth Grade Math**Computation Curriculum • Multidigit addition with regrouping • Multidigit subtraction with regrouping • Multiplication facts, factors to 9 • Multiply 2-digit numbers by a 1-digit number • Multiply 2-digit numbers by a 2-digit number • Division facts, divisors to 9 • Divide 2-digit numbers by a 1-digit number • Divide 3-digit numbers by a 1-digit number • Add/subtract simple fractions, like denominators • Add/subtract whole number and mixed number**Random numerals within problems (considering specifications**of problem types) • Random placement of problem types on page**Random numerals within problems (considering specifications**of problem types) • Random placement of problem types on page**Donald’s Progress in Digits Correct**Across the School Year Instructional Change**Salient Features of General Outcome Measurement**• General domains, not subskills • Keeps global curriculum outcomes intact and uses long-term goals • Makes no assumptions about instructional hierarchy for determining measurement (i.e., CBM fits with any instructional approach) • No measurement shifts**Salient Features of General Outcome Measurement (cont)**• Incorporates automatic tests of retention and generalization • Measurement of Long-Term Curricular Goal Performance • Test Construction • Standardized procedures used to assess performance on the long-term goal • Reliability & validity can be determined**Downsides to General Outcome Measurement**• Often lacks information on specific subskills • If interested in identifying specific skills to teach, GOM not appropriate • Need to use a diagnostic measure • Fidelity of implementation is important**CBM and Math**• The number of correctly written digits in 2 minutes from the end-of-year curriculum • Correct digits • Not correct problems or answers • 2 minutes**Math CBM**• Student(s) are given a sheet of math problems and pencil • Student(s) complete as many math problems as they can in 2 minutes • At the end of 2 minutes the number of correctly written digits is counted**Example of a 4th grade math curriculum**• Multidigit addition with regrouping • Multidigit subtraction with regrouping • Multiplication facts, factors to 9 • Multiply 3-digit numbers by a 1-digit number • Multiply 2-digit numbers by a 2-digit number • Division facts, divisors to 9 • Divide 2-digit numbers by a 1-digit number • Add/subtract simple fractions, like denominators • Add/subtract whole number and mixed number**Math scoring criteria**• If the answer is correct, the student earns the score equivalent to the number of correct digits written using the “longest method” taught to solve the problem, even if the work is not shown • If a problem has been crossed out, credit is given for the correct digits written • If the problem has not been completed, credit is earned for any correct digits written**A “correct digit” is the right numeral in the right**place 4507 4507 4507 2146 2146 2146 2441 2361 2461 4 correct digits 3 correct digits 2 correct digits**Determining placement level in math material**Burns, VanDerHeyden, & Jiban (2006)**Weekly growth rates for math(Correct Digits [CD] in 2**minutes) From Fuchs, Fuchs, Hamlett, Walz, & Germann (1993)**How often?**• Progress Monitoring (Formative) • 1x Week for at-risk & students with disabilities • 1x Month for typically developing students • 1x Quarter for above average students • Benchmarking/ Norming (Summative) • 1x Quarter for all students • Survey Level (Summative) • 1x At the beginning of progress monitoring • 1x Identify students’ instructional level**3**8/3/05 Roger You 3 22 16 16 I 16 X**IEP Goals & Objectives**• Time (the amount of time the goal is written for) • “In 1 year…” • Learner (the student for whom the goal is being written) • “...Jose will…” • Behavior (the specific skill the student will demonstrate) • “…read aloud…” • Level (the grade the content is from) • “… a second-grade…”**IEP Goals & Objectives (cont)**• Content (what the student is learning about) • “…reading…” • Material (what the student is using) • “…passage from ORF CBM progress-monitoring material…” • Criteria (the expected level of performance, including time and accuracy) • “…at 90 words read correctly in 1 minute with greater than 95% accuracy.”**Math goals & objectives**• In 30 weeks, Larry will calculate addition and subtraction problems from second-grade mixed-math CBM progress-monitoring material at 45 correct digits in 2 minutes with greater than 95% accuracy. • In 10 weeks, Larry will calculate addition and subtraction problems from second-grade mixed-math CBM progress-monitoring material at 20 CD in 2 minutes with greater than 95% accuracy.**Spelling CBM**• Student(s) are given a blank sheet of lined paper • Teacher dictates a spelling word every 10 seconds (grades 1-3) every 7 seconds (grades 4-8) • Stop at the end of 2 minutes and count the number of correct letter sequences (CLS)**Scoring Spelling CBM**• TEAM = 5 correct letter sequences T E A M T M T E M**Conducting Spelling CBM**• Say each word twice. Use homonyms in a sentence. • Read. He read the book. • Say a new word every 10 (or 7) seconds • 12-13 words for grades 1-3 • 17-18 words for grades 4-8 • Dictate words for 2 minutes.**Weekly Growth Rates for Spelling**(Correct Letter Sequences (CLS) in 2 min) Fuchs, Fuchs, Hamlett, Walz, & Germann (1993)**How often?**• Progress Monitoring (Formative) • 1x Week for at-risk & students with disabilities • 1x Month for typically developing students • 1x Quarter for above average students • Benchmarking/ Norming (Summative) • 1x Quarter for all students**Spelling CBM Goals and Objectives**• In 30 weeks, Roberto will spell words from a fourth-grade spelling list from Spelling CBM progress-monitoring material at 70 correct letter sequences in 2 minutes with greater than 95% accuracy. • In 10 weeks, Roberto will spell words from a fourth-grade spelling list from Spelling CBM progress-monitoring material at 25 correct letter sequences in 2 minutes with greater than 95% accuracy.**Curriculum-Based Measurement: Written Expression**• Provides an indicator of student performance in writing • Three scoring methods • Total Words Written (TWW) • Words Spelled Correctly (WSC) • Correct Writing Sequences (CWS) • Can be group administered • District or Classroom Norms**PRIMARY STORY STARTERS**1.
