(p.79) 6 Implementing Data-Based Program Modification Big Ideas
A Measure of Success

Gary Germann

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter describes the “Big Ideas” of a comprehensive problem-solving model that requires adherence to the principles of data-based decision making. These big ideas include: the problem is never the disability; the purpose of assessment is to quantify and measure the student’s actual progress, the student’s expected progress, and the discrepancy between the two; program modifications directed at reducing or eliminating a problem must be directly, frequently, and continuously monitored to determine their effects; and Curriculum-Based Measures are valid and reliable indicators of students’ progress. It also traces the challenges and successes in the development and implementation of district-wide use of Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) and problem-solving practices.

Keywords:   Curriculum-Based Measurement, CBM, problem solving, special education, data-based decision making
