This chapter assesses whether Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) is contributing to the health of general education. It considers objections to the claim that CBM is a valid assessment technique. It finds that most of the arguments challenging the validity of CBM are weak. It also considers problems stemming from educators’ understanding of the interplay between assessment and instruction. In teaching preservice teacher candidates in an introductory assessment class, it is difficult to convince them that progress monitoring built on one-minute measures can provide the foundation for instructional change and child achievement. Part of the problem is their lack of familiarity with assessment in general and their background knowledge that is deeply embedded in their own assessment experiences. More work needs to be done to help preservice teachers grasp the finer points of connecting assessment to instruction without making them identical.
