CBM in Other Languages: A Systematic Review

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. describe existing research on CBM in other languages.
  2. identify current limitations in research.
  3. identify future directions in research.


Despite the growing linguistic diversity in U.S. public schools, most research focusing on CBMs has been conducted using English CBM probes and there is significantly less research on use of CBM probes in other languages. The present study describes the results of a systematic review of the existing literature on CBM in other languages and ethnically and linguistically diverse populations. Implications for effectively measuring the academic skills of linguistically diverse students will be discussed.
