Precision of Single-Skill CBM: Group Versus Individual Administration

This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 1
  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Session 4: Assessment and Intervention in an RTI Framework

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. learn about math CBMs.
  2. learn outcomes and implications of the current study.
  3. discuss future directions for related research.


Single skill measures (SSMs) are designed to measure a specific skill, and probes contain problems that are similar, such as addition with single digits. While SSMs are widely used in education to determine systems-level needs, as well as to monitor academic progress, little research has contributed to establishing expectations for precision of slopes. This project utilized a within-subject group design to evaluate differences in learning between two levels of SSM administration: individual and group.
