CBMmath Concepts & Applications (CAP)
All items were developed in accordance with the mathematics learning hierarchy in the Common Core State Standards, which includes:
- Counting and Cardinality
- Operations and Algebraic Thinking
- Number and Operations in Base 10
- Measurement and Data
The content of the measure matches the skills typically taught in kindergarten through grade 8 and can be used to assess all students in those grades.
When used for screening, CBMmath CAP is sensitive to student growth over longer periods of time and is therefore a great tool for screening students three times a year (i.e., fall, winter, spring).
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.
Students log in to a computer or tablet device to complete the CBMmath CAP assessment. The student completes as many problems as possible in the allotted time. All CBMmath assessments use standardized administration and scoring procedures, which were designed and developed to optimize the consistency of data collected across students.
