Student measures

There are two types of student measures, those scored and entered by a teacher and those that are taken on-line and scored by the computer. Some progress monitoring reading measures, which are timed, can be administered, scored, and entered by the teacher. Other measures like math and reading comprehension can be taken by the student either on-line or by paper and pencil.

For security reasons, answer keys are not provided for progress monitoring measures. Student scores for the paper and pencil versions can be entered into the computer by hand. The computer will automatically score the test responses and graph the results. By entering each student response rather than merely a total score, you will be able to see how students performed item by item.

Teacher Deluxe users also have Benchmark measures available. These measures can only be administered to students on-grade (students' actual grade level), and they do have answer keys. To access these measures, go

to the Measures tab, then the Benchmark tab, and make a selection in the Combined Booklets column on the left.

Benchmark tests are actually screeners and are given to students at their grade level to see where they are academically compared to students in their own grade, at a particular time of year. They are intended to be used to identify students most in need of instructional interventions.

Although we do not have a single test or screener you can give a student that will pinpoint exactly where he/she should start, we do have tools you can work with to help determine students’ academic needs, providing a baseline from which to evaluate the impact of the different instructional interventions and approaches used to improve skill level in both reading and math. The goal of the program is to help students work toward being able to function in the 50th percentile range, on grade-level measures. The easyCBM assessments were developed for students in grades K-8th.
