This pragmatic, accessible book presents an empirically supported conceptual framework and hands-on instructions for conducting curriculum-based measurement (CBM) in grades K-8. The authors provide the tools needed to assess student learning in reading, spelling, writing, and math, and to graph the resulting data. The role of CBM in systematic instructional problem solving is explained. Every chapter includes helpful answers to frequently asked questions, and the appendices contain over 20 reproducible administration and scoring guides, forms, and planning checklists. The large-size format and lay-flat binding facilitate photocopying and day-to-day use.
See also The ABCs of Curriculum-Based Evaluation: A Practical Guide to Effective Decision Making, by John L. Hosp, Michelle K. Hosp, Kenneth W. Howell, and Randy Allison, which presents a broader problem-solving model that utilizes CBM.

"Up to date, comprehensive, and practical. Contains useful forms and norms."--Terry Bontrager, PhD, Department of Counseling and School Psychology, University Of Massachusetts Boston"This book is exactly what teachers need to get started using CBM or to refine and extend their current use. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in CBM. I have flagged several pages so that I can readily locate the information for future use."--Sharon Vaughn, PhD, Department of Special Education, University of Texas at Austin "The ABCs of CBM is an excellent treatment of the nature and purposes of CBM, and provides resources for applying the approach across several academic skills areas. Progress monitoring and formative evaluation are increasingly important in general, remedial, and special education. I plan to adopt this book as a text for courses in assessment and academic intervention taught to undergraduate and graduate students."--Dan Reschly, PhD, Peabody College of Vanderbilt University "This text provides a useful introduction to the nuts and bolts of CBM administration, interpretation, and application. It is a useful primer to support introductory coursework on CBM. The material is also relevant for field-based administrators, teachers, paraprofessionals, and school psychologists who are interested in a direct and nontechnical presentation of CBM."--Theodore J. Christ, PhD, School Psychology Program, University of Minnesota
