Benchmark and progress monitoring assessment
Progress Monitoring Made Easy
easyCBM® is an enhanced district-assessment system designed by researchers at the University of Oregon as an integral part of a Response to Intervention (RTI) model. Distributed exclusively by Riverside Insights™, easyCBM facilitates instruction and intervention at every RTI tier through a district-level assessment system. This assessment and reporting suite includes a combination of benchmarking, progress monitoring, and comprehensive reporting. Available for grades K–8, the Reading and Mathematics curriculum-based measures examine a full year of academic growth, giving you insights to make informed intervention and instructional decisions. With easyCBM, you can ensure that progress monitoring is made easy at the classroom, school, or district level.
easyCBM Delivers the Tools to Inform Instruction and Intervention
Developed for RTI – Developed with federal guidance in an RTI framework, easyCBM enables you to screen, monitor progress, and plan interventions with confidence.
Computer administration options – Student performance and progress are managed in real time through the computer-based measurement and evaluation system. Spend less time entering data and give your students instant feedback for almost all assessments.
Item-level data – easyCBM’s item-level reporting ensures that you can pinpoint instructional areas of concern and intervention for each student or group.
Ease of use – The flexibility of easyCBM’s intuitive operating system and built-in professional development allows users to become familiar with the benchmarks and progress monitoring system to ensure valid data-driven decisions.
Lexile® measures – easyCBM Reading Comprehension Assessment provides a Lexile score that is intended to help teachers and parents select instructional resources appropriate for students’ reading levels.
Active research and development – Riverside's ongoing partnership with the University of Oregon ensures an active program of research and development toward improvements in this formative assessment system.
IRT process – Confidently track student progress and make data-driven decisions rooted in sound educational research. Item Response Theory (IRT) ensures comparability of alternate forms of the assessment, so any variation in performance can be attributed to the student, not measurement error.
Aligned to standards – easyCBM measures are aligned to your state standards, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM®) focal points, and the Common Core standards.
"The ease and simplicity of using easyCBM to get rich data not only helps support instruction in all tiers of support, but also provides quick results for teachers to determine deficits to attack early with appropriate invention. Using easyCBM has also helped administrators, teachers, and staff understand the progression of learning and this has helped our district in making the right decision for students, especially in RTI."

Scoring & Reporting
The data utilization system within easyCBM produces rich reports that provide RTI data and fulfills a number of instructional functions:
- Identify students at risk
- Monitor effectiveness of interventions
- Organize students into intervention groups
- Progress monitor groups or individual students
- Diagnostic display of error analysis
- Target aim lines for improvement
- Movement of students across instructional tiers
A few example reports are shown below. For a full array of available reports, request a district demonstration by contacting your local Riverside Insights Assessment Consultant.
Benchmark Assessment Report
View risk-analysis reports to identify at-risk students and to drive intervention decisions.
- Risk rating is clearly defined by color.
Percentile and raw scores are easily accessible.
Group Performance Report
- Tracks performance for up to 10 students.
Informs teachers of the specific assessment objective for each item on the test and lists the items students found easiest to those they found most challenging
Group Summary Report
Provides information helpful for grouping students.
Individual Reports and Tools
Passage Reading Fluency (PRF) Report
- Shows progress across interventions and across time.
Online scoring for all PRF measures with an optional timer.
Updated Intervention Functionality
- Create your own template!
New intervention templates allow users to easily provide very detailed information about interventions deployed, including a description, the intensity, and the curricula-and research-based strategies being used. Intervention can be applied to individual students or groups of students.
