Too Good Not To Share
I have stumbled across a website called easyCBM that is new to me and I wanted to share with you all! It can be found HERE! It is has progress monitoring probes for Reading and Math. The reading is similar to DIBELS if you are familiar with that. There are lots of good things about it: 1.) It's FREE! 2.) It tracks AND charts students progress, all you have to do is enter your students and their data and VIOLA...YOU HAVE DATA! 3.) It can be used in grades K-8; 4.) They are LOTS of probes...enough to get you through the school year!, 5.) All probes with the exception of fluency can be taken on the computer and their scores will automatically be entered for the student. If you are not familiar with Curriculum Based Measurement--have no fear! They have a section where you can learn how to assess and even practice giving them. There are videos to watch that are about 2 minutes long and sample probes. Go try it out and let me know what you think! I am SUPER excited about using this in the upcoming school year!
