Deluxe vs. District easyCBM
The Deluxe program and the District program are actually handled by two different support teams. This site handles the single teacher Lite and Deluxe versions that has a limit of 200 students and costs $49.99 a year. The District version has a district-wide, not single teacher, application. Our partners at Riverside Insights can provide you with the details of this version of easyCBM. Please visit Riverside Insights for more information.
The Deluxe version is basically a single teacher, scaled down, version of the District. The paid Deluxe version ($49.99 annually) builds on the Lite program monitoring measures and offers 13 additional more challenging Proficient Math forms per grade. The Proficient Math forms include 25 items in grades K-2 and 30 items in grades 3-5. It also adds measures of Vocabulary, shorter comprehension measures that include informational text and “read to perform a task” prompts, in addition to short literary text, all-new mathematics measures written to align to the Common Core State Standards, in addition the NCTM Focal Point-based math measures, and Spanish language support for all math items (in both written and read-aloud formats).With our Deluxe program you gain access to ALL measures which were previously only available to District users (including Benchmark, Basic and Proficient Math and Reading measures. There is also Vocabulary and Spanish measures and more forms for Progress Monitoring. Teacher Deluxe users also have access to our template-based interventions log, additional reports, and a student retention feature along with a roster upload feature.

The District version allows for a school district to have all of their students in one account and assign different level of access to teachers and administrators. The district has its own secure private URL address for client sign-in and the district usually has both a district contact and IT person in their district who manage the account with our partners at Riverside Insights providing guidance and support.
The District version allows a single point of contact for all billing / tech support needs, and is designed to enable different ‘levels’ of access to the data. District users can easily see all the data in the system, and are able to set the benchmark windows and percentile rank targets (for risk ratings). The District as a whole can view results summarized by school or classroom, as well as dig into the individual student results. Building level users (such as building principals and school psychologists) can view results compiled by grade level and broken down by classroom, etc. For teacher users, the system works the same as the Deluxe version, with one important exception — the District version enables multiple ‘teacher users’ to share students, such as might be needed when a student receives services from a general education teacher as well as a special education teacher or interventionist.
