How to Read CBM Charts

1. How are CBM goals set for students with an Intervention Plan? Loudon County is utilizing CBM data to better judge the academic progress of our students. In addition to the benchmarking of all students, CBM data is used to assess the academic growth of some students placed on academic interventions prior to a referral to consider special education eligibility. Goals are developed based on normative data from the national norms and progress towards that goal is measured. Reading Intervention student progress is monitored weekly rather than three times a year so that decisions regarding progress can be made more quickly. The following presents an overview of that goal setting process.


1. Determine where student is average in comparison to the most recent national norms for the appropriate CBM probe and then choose the next higher grade level for monitoring progress over the next year.

2. Calculate the student's projected Rate of Improvement (ROI) to reach the 25th percentile on goal level.

3. If the student is being monitored on grade level, calculate the projected ROI to reach the 25th percentile on grade level.

4. Compare the projected ROI to the ROI of the student last year (if available).

5. Compare the projected ROI to typical growth rates for national norms.

6. Select an appropriate ROI based on all available information.

7. Monitor the goal weekly. Ideally, the black goal line and the red dotted line should be close together to show the student is making progress towards the goal. If the red line is well below the black goal line, this indicates the goal is set too low. The trend of the line needs to be examined, but if four or more of the data points are above the black line, a higher goal may need to be developed. Conversely, if four or more of the data points are below the black line, a lower goal may need to be developed. If a goal needs to be changed on a student's reading intervention plan, an S-Team meeting will need to be convened.
