Summary:
"This book provides a practical guide to curriculum-based evaluation (CBE), which helps educators solve learning problems by making data-based decisions about what and how to teach. CBE offers clear procedures for analyzing PreK-12 students' academic skills, determining where instruction needs to focus, and evaluating progress. Written in an engaging, step-by-step style, the book features examples throughout that illustrate the problem-solving process. The use of curriculum-based measurement (CBM) as a data collection technique is discussed. Reproducible planning and implementation tools are included; the large-size format and lay-flat binding facilitate photocopying. Purchasers also get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials. This book is in The Guilford Practical Intervention in the Schools Series. See also The ABCs of CBM: A Practical Guide to Curriculum-Based Measurement, by Michelle K. Hosp, John L. Hosp, and Kenneth W. Howell, which provides hands-on instructions for implementing a core technique used in CBE. "-- Provided by publisher.
