Summary

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 everything needed to evaluate student learning in reading, spelling, writing, and math; graph the resulting data; and use this information to make sound instructional decisions, plan interventions, and monitor progress. The role of CBM within a response-to-intervention model is also 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. This book is in The Guilford Practical Intervention in the Schools Series.

Author Biography

Michelle K. Hosp, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Special Education at the University of Utah. Her research focus is on using curriculum-based measurement (CBM) to inform instruction in the area of reading. Dr. Hosp has been using CBM and conducting trainings for more than 10 years and has 3 years of experience working as a trainer for the National Center on Student Progress Monitoring.
 
John L. Hosp, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Special Education at the University of Utah. His research interests include disproportionate representation of minority students in special education, aligning assessment with intervention, and the design and implementation of response to intervention (RTI). Dr. Hosp has used CBM extensively in his own practice as a school psychologist and has trained educators in several states to use CBM and Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS). 
 
Kenneth W. Howell, PhD, is a Professor in the Department of Special Education at Western Washington University. Dr. Howell has published extensively in the areas of curriculum-based evaluation (CBE), CBM, and evaluation. His primary areas of research interest are problem solving, RTI, CBE, CBM, and school violence. A former special education teacher and school psychologist, Dr. Howell is well known in both fields as a speaker and trainer.
