Online Course: Common Core: Curriculum-Based Measures
From the PLB Website: "Basic skills are required for any subject in order for students to achieve. When students struggle with basic academic skills, implementing the Common Core standards (CCSS) can be challenging without successful interventions. By monitoring and managing student development, teachers can guide students toward success in all aspects of the curriculum.
This course helps teachers learn to evaluate and monitor basic academic skills. Curriculum Based Measures (CBM) is a standardized tool that aligns with the Common Core Standards (CCSS) and gives teachers objective and specific information about student academic performance. This course provides a framework to help teachers plan interventions based on the issues identified in the CBM. Teachers will be able to build a strong foundation for Common Core implementation with a specific focus on language fluency, math and written expression."
