CBMmath Automaticity is one of three types of FastBridge curriculum-based measurement (CBM) for math. CBMmath Automaticity can be used for both universal screening and for progress monitoring.
CBMmath Automaticity Overview
CBMmath Automaticity evaluates the degree to which basic math facts and operations are accurate and automatic (fluent). The content reflects the math skills typically taught in grades 1 through 3 and this assessment can be used with students in any grade who need to master math facts for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
CBMmath Automaticity consists of a General Outcome Measure (GOM) for each level as well as single- and multi-skill mastery measures. The GOMs are designed for universal screening and the mastery measures are designed for progress monitoring. CBMmath Automaticity is an entirely online assessment and students log in to the FastBridge website to complete it. It is timed for up to 4 minutes and scored automatically so student scores are available immediately for teacher review. The CBMmath Automaticity raw score is converted to create a final score which is the number correct in 10 minutes.
This assessment requires the sound to be on.

CBMmath Automaticity can be used for both universal screening and for progress monitoring. When used for progress monitoring, FastBridge recommends the level match the student's current grade unless the student is 3 or more years behind grade level in math skills.
The FastBridge system includes several reports that teachers can use to understand Automaticity scores. The Class List provides a summary of students’ scores. When the general outcome measure (GOM) is used for screening, the Class List will show both the GOM score and the percentages of problem types that the student answered correctly. The Group Screening Report provides a summary of student scores for a class or grade. The Individual Skills Report displays which items a student answered correctly or incorrectly. The Progress Monitoring Report shows an individual student's scores over time.
On the screening page for CBMmath Automaticity, users may find that there are small percentage indicators.
- This indicates the accuracy of the student's actual score on each subtest.
- This indicates the predicted accuracy of those subtests based on the student's GOM score.
There are two ways that students can access CBMmath Automaticity:
The school or district manager can set up student accounts. Once set up, the student logs in by entering a username and password. The student will then see a welcome screen like this:
The student then selects the CBMmath Automaticity tile to start the assessment.
Group Proctor Account
A Group Proctor account is one that allows an assigned adult to open and start an assessment for students but does not allow access to other FastBridge system features or student scores. To access CBMmath Automaticity using a Group Proctor account, the adult logs in and selects the school, grade, and teacher whose class the students attend. Next, select Screening, then CBMmath Automaticity on the left navigation. This will display the names of the students in the class. The Proctor then selects the clock icon for the student and the student will be able to begin the assessment.
Students have the option of using a mouse, touchscreen, or computer keyboard to select digits from the number line to enter their responses. Responses show up in the numerical entry box.
Selecting the left arrow button will delete the digits in the box.
After selecting the correct number(s), the students select the green arrow to proceed to the next question.
When the time has expired, the student will be able to finish their last question.
The following screen displays after the student selects the green arrow for the final item.
To exit the assessment, the student selects Exit Test in the upper right corner of the screen.
Navigation Tools used in CBMmath Automaticity.
|Allows the student to repeat the audio on the slides that include audio. This button is located in the upper right corner of the window.|
|Allows the student to delete digits in the numerical entry box.|
|Allows the student to navigate to the next question.|
|Assessment status bar is a real-time status bar that fills in with the color orange as time decreases.|
|*Special Accommodations for scratch paper||Due to CBMmath Automaticity measuring fluidity and mental math, if students use scratch paper, it invalidates the data unless the use of scratch paper is explicitly listed in a student's IEP.|
