What is Curriculum-Based Measurement and What Does It Mean to My Child? (Spanish)

National Center on Student Progress Monitoring

This online brief gives an overview of curriculum-based measurement (CBM), a method teachers use to find out how students are progressing in basic academic areas such as math, reading, writing, and spelling. It explains how CBM works, what benefits it provides to students, and how their parents can use the results to work more effectively with the school system on their child’s behalf.
