Simple in concept, far-reaching in implementation, Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) was developed in the 1980s as an efficient way to assess the progress of struggling students, including those with disabilities. Today, there are few areas of special education policy and practice that have not been influenced by CBM progress monitoring. The impact of CBM is reflected in recent education reforms that emphasize improvements in assessment and data-based decision making. Gathering an international group of leading researchers and practitioners, A Measure of Success provides a comprehensive picture of the past, present, and possible future of CBM progress monitoring. The book will be instrumental for researchers and practitioners in both general and special education, particularly those involved in the rapidly growing Response to Intervention (RTI) approach, an approach used to determine the performance and placement of students with learning difficulties.A Measure of Success presents a nuanced examination of CBM progress monitoring in reading, math, and content-area learning to assess students at all levels, from early childhood to secondary school, and with a wide range of abilities, from high- and low-incidence disabilities to no disabilities. This study also evaluates how the approach has affected instructional practices, teacher training, psychology and school psychology, educational policy, and research in the United States and beyond.Timely and unique, this volume will interest anyone in education who wants to harness the potential advantage of progress monitoring to improve outcomes for students.Contributors: Laurence Bergeron; Lionel A.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A Measure of Success provides insight into the development, history, research, and practical applications of Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM). Although many in the field of special education know about and perhaps teach or use CBM, not many of us understand the impetus for Stanley Deno's original idea for an efficient way to measure student progress, or the level of research supporting the use of CBM. This collection provides testament to his commitment to improving skills of teachers and other school personnel so they may positively impact student outcomes." -Dr. Janie Hodge, Clemson University

"To gather so much expertise into one volume is a great way to help readers deepen their understanding of an idea that is beautiful in its simplicity, yet complex in its scope and impact." -Dr. Evelyn Johnson, Boise State University
