Event Description

A research team at the University of Minnesota, led by Dr. Ted Christ, has developed a new generation of curriculum-based measurement (CBM) tools. Known as Formative Assessment for Teachers (FAST), it combines the features of brief CBM items with the computer-adaptive testing such as found in the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) published by the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA). The screening measures are computer-adaptive and conducted online in 6-15 minutes.  The progress measures are 1 minute CBM assessments used weekly.  All the data are entered into a web-based portal where teachers can obtain individual student and class reports.  The reading measures are currently available and the math measures will be by Fall 2013. The research is funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Institute for Education Science (IES).
 
The FAST researchers are looking for schools and districts that would be willing to partner with them for additional implementation research.  In return, the school or district would receive free access to FAST for the duration of the research project.  If your school would be interested in such a partnership, contact:
