This chapter describes Deno’s influence on the development of progress monitoring measures for secondary reading, writing, and content-area learning. It also reflects on the potential contributions of Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) to secondary school programming. In the areas of reading and writing, CBM progress measures might be used to answer questions such as the following: Do students with learning disabilities (LD) plateau in skills—that is, is it true that “if they haven’t learned it by now, they never will?” If skills do improve, is it worth expending the instructional time and effort it takes to effect such improvements? In content-area learning, the questions that might be answered by CBM can include: How much do students with LD learn in content-area classes such as science and social studies? How much do we expect them to learn?

Keywords:   Curriculum-Based Measurement, CBM, progress monitoring, secondary school students, reading, writing, content-area learning
