Using Curriculum Based Measures to Identify Instructional Goals in Writing
How can educators use writing assessment data to identify effective interventions and instructional targets? This webinar presented in partnership with the Council for Educational Diagnostic Services (CEDS) highlights how curriculum based measures in written expression (CBM-WE) can be used for instructional decision making. Presenters provide a brief overview of scoring procedures used in CBM-WE and introduce how a linguistic framework called Levels of Language can be further used to interpret student writing samples in order to identify specific instructional targets and IEP annual goals in writing.
After the webinar, you will be able to:
- Describe different scoring procedures used in CBM-WE.
- Use an empirically-validated theory of writing to describe students’ writing strengths and instructional needs from assessment.
- Identify evidence-based interventions in writing that address specific student writing needs.
