A Measure of Success

This chapter begins by highlighting the critical features of Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) that make it possible to use the measures in conjunction with current large-scale assessments. It acknowledges that, under the leadership of Stanley Deno, individuals who have worked with CBM over the past four decades are ready to take the measurement system to a new level, as they interact with other measurement systems from state departments of education. This next level would involve the use of more precise scaling, presumably using some form of Item Response Theory (IRT). Finally, the chapter proposes how CBM can provide critical information to help teachers make important decisions about student participation in large-scale testing programs.
