Do vocabularly measures have to be completed silently? They can’t have any of the questions read to them?

Read aloud supports for the vocabulary measures would be allowed ONLY if they are part of a student’s IEP. Otherwise, it would be considered changing the construct (because the vocabulary measures on easyCBM are actually testing students’ ability to make sense of vocabulary in context, and the norms were all computed based on students doing their own reading).

That said, if a student’s IEP specifies a read-aloud accommodation, then this would definitely be allowed.
