CBMmath - Automaticity
CBMmath Automaticity consists of a General Outcome Measure (GOM) and mastery measures designed for grades 1-12. Although the content reflects the math skills typically taught in grades 1 through 3, this assessment can be used with students in any grade who need to master math facts for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
Each measure provides teachers with a direct link to instruction, allowing them to determine if and when instructional adaptations are needed, to set ambitious but attainable goals for students, and to monitor progress toward those goals.
As a universal screener, CBMmath Automaticity identifies students three times a year (i.e. fall, winter, spring) who are at risk for math difficulties.
Instruction can be made more or less resource-intensive and individualized for students requiring the most support. At the school level, student growth can be tracked and monitored, allowing administrators to look at improvements across grades and academic years.
CBMmath Automaticity is included as a required assessment in FASTtrack Math for grades 2-12.
CBMmath Automaticity also consists of single and multi-skill mastery levels, which can be used for progress monitoring students who are participating in math fact interventions: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
When used for progress monitoring, CBMmath Automaticity is highly sensitive to growth, making it quick and easy to deliver frequently (e.g., weekly, biweekly). The assessments provide useful data to monitor student progress and evaluate response to instruction.
Students log in to a computer or tablet device to complete the CBMmath Automaticity. The student enters numerical answers using a mouse or by touch screen. All CBMmath assessments use standardized administration and scoring procedures, which were designed and developed to optimize the consistency of data collected across students.
