This article contains a set of detailed steps that will assist middle and high school special education teachers in the con,ruction and implementation of curriculum-based measurement (CBM) to track reading progress. CBM involves teachers, students, and parents in progress monitoring. The steps include information on how to construct and organize a CBM, how to administer and score a CBM, how to use the information for instructional changes, and how to use the data collected from a CBM to inform parents about their child's progress.
