Editorial Reviews

"The authors have expanded their practical guide to CBM to include measures of multiple academic domains, including early literacy and numeracy, as well as the content areas. The book shows how CBM is an essential resource for implementing multi-tiered services and illustrates how to graph, interpret, and use CBM data to make important educational decisions. I am impressed by the expanded content, including more measures and a fuller explanation of CBM in the context of a functional assessment model. I am truly excited to make this text a centerpiece of the functional academic assessment course I will be teaching in the spring. Students will find practical, step-by-step administration, scoring, and graphing procedures; current benchmark standards and normative comparisons; and advice about data management systems.”
