Help Center : Teacher Edition

Do you have a breakdown of mathematical categories to see how students do with each concept?

Although some test vendors that previously offered easyCBM math items provided reports that clustered scores by the math domains, we, the authors of easyCBM, do not do this because the results of numerous empirical studies suggest that these sub-scores are not sufficiently reliable to be used to guide decision making.

The issue is that there are not enough math items in each of the domains to enable reliable sub-scores to be reported. (we would need to increase the length of the tests considerably to be able to provide sub-test reports with integrity). We do, however, provide a way for teachers to review the domains with which their students are struggling in our Reports –> Groups –> Item analysis table.
