Progress Monitoring

Progress MonitoringLynn Fuchs of Vanderbilt University provides an overview of progress monitoring and describes how progress monitoring is used within a multi-level prevention system. A companion article discusses validated forms of progress monitoring in reading and mathematics, focusing in particular on the advantages of curriculum-based measurement. Additional articles in this section address many aspects of monitoring student progress, including one teacher’s transformation from skeptic to advocate.

Validated Forms of Progress Monitoring in Reading and Mathematics

Validated forms of progress monitoring have been developed over a span of years. One of these forms, curriculum-based measurement (CBM), is discussed in this article, where we also present some background on CBM-based progress-monitoring measures in Reading in the elementary grades and in Mathematics.
