CBMmath Process consists of a General Outcome Measure (GOM) and mastery measures designed for grades 2-6. Although the content reflects the math skills typically taught through the sixth grade, this assessment can be used with students in any grade who need to master one or two problem types from 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 Process gives teachers the opportunity three times per year (i.e. fall, winter, spring) to track the types of errors students are making when solving single and multi-step math problems. When used for screening, CBMmath Process uses a rapid scoring method, so teachers can quickly enter assessments and get a general idea of error types.
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.
Although basic math facts are often taught in grades 2 through 6, not all students master them by the end of sixth grade. Therefore, CBMmath Process is an excellent tool to use when progress monitoring the growth of students who may be in interventions related to improving their skills for solving multi-digit and multi-step math problems.
When used for progress monitoring, CBMmath Process 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 take the CBMmath Process assessment on paper and it is then scored online by the teacher. The assessment can be administered to individuals or groups of students by the teacher. All CBMmath assessments use standardized administration and scoring procedures, which were designed and developed to optimize the consistency of data collected across students.
