Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) is a valid, efficient, and effective weapon against reading failure. In August 2006, a team of Western and Central Pennsylvania researchers received Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) funding to document and evaluate the implementation of a school-wide progress monitoring model aimed at improving reading achievement in grades K-4 and reducing unnecessary referrals to special education. This chapter describes the implementation of CBM practices within the Monitoring Progress of Pennsylvania Pupils (MP3) model at Larue Elementary School. Across three years of implementation, at most grade levels, there was not only an increase in the percentage of students meeting grade-level benchmarks but, more important, there was a decrease in the number of students performing far below grade level.
