CBMcomp is an optional extension activity that can be used with CBMreading.
Note: To use CBMcomp, CBMreading MUST first be administered.
CBMcomp will measure the student’s comprehension of the passage that was just read by using story retelling and a series of 10 questions about the passage.
The CBMreading assessment should be administered per the directions. After the third passage in the CBMreading assessment has been administered, the teacher should stop the timer and mark the last word. Allow the student to finish reading the entire passage before moving to the comprehension piece. The teacher will have the option of administering the comprehension piece. In the timer box and above the passage are buttons that will allow the teacher to:
1. Administer CBMcomp
2. Skip the comprehension administration
CBMcomp is divided into two parts, a recall portion and a series of 10 questions about the story. The recall portion asks the student to recall the important parts of the story and the teacher will mark each item as the student recalls them. These will populate into a Synthesis Recall section that the teacher can review and change if needed. Then, the teacher will rate the thoroughness of the recall.
Following the recall portion will be a series of 10 questions about the passage. The teacher will mark the response to the questions and the total correct will be calculated.
