This chapter focuses on the use of Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) for making special education eligibility decisions for English Language Learners (ELLs) in Saint Paul Public Schools (SPPS), a large urban district in the Midwest. It describes the process, procedures, data, and results of using CBM reading, writing, and mathematics to develop district-wide local norms for ELLs. The norms presented can be used to represent typical progress for students who are learning basic skills while they are learning English. The progress of students referred for special education services can be compared to the progress of their peers. Comparisons can then be used for special education decision making (e.g. eligibility for placement in special education) and monitoring progress in academics.
