Progress Monitoring Measures
To assign an online progress monitoring measure, go to “Measures” and select the Progress Monitoring Tab. Click on the grade of the test you want to administer (it will be highlighted in blue).
Now scroll down the page until you locate the name of the assessment you wish to administer. On the right-hand side you will see a “Take Online” checkbox (for those assessments that can be administered online).
Click the box, and a list of your student groups will appear. Once you’ve selected the groups you want tested, students can login using their teacher’s username and then test option will appear for the student to take.
If you are entering student scores (as needed for fluency measures) instead of taking an online test, click on the “Enter Scores” column, and a pop-up window will appear. Select the group name and go to fill in the student responses or scores. Make sure to select the Save button when you are finished entering the scores.
The Benchmark Window date, set by the easyCBM Head Admin, establishes when benchmark tests can be administered. Setting and opening a benchmark window is always at the discretion of the user, and the window can be changed at any time.
When the benchmark window is open you have a choice to either download and administer a copy of the test to students (keys are provided for scoring student responses which are entered manually) or have students take the tests online (which is scored and entered automatically).
For online tests, students go to their unique district easyCBM website address and choose Students Click Here. They will then be able to choose their tests from a drop-down menu. *Note: for Benchmark Assessments, students can only take on-grade measures.
If you administer benchmark assessments in hard copy/paper and pencil format, then you can download the student copies of the tests to administer to students and score them with the answer keys, which can be downloaded from the Measures tab, under the Benchmark tab. Student scores are then entered under the current Benchmark icon. Enter the student’s total scores or item-level data and then save scores.
