- 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. It 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.
- Note: This assessment requires the sound to be on.

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 or touch screen to select digits from the number line, or using the computer keyboard to enter their responses. Responses show up in the numerical entry box. Clicking the button will delete digits in the box. After selecting the correct number(s), the student clicks the button to proceed to the next question.
When time has expired, the student will be able to finish their last question. The following screen displays after the student clicks the button for the final item.
To exit the assessment, the student clicks on Exit Test in the upper right corner of the screen.
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 different 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 correct or incorrect. The Progress Monitoring report shows an individual student's scores over time.
On the screening page for CBMmath Automaticity, you may find that there are small percentage indicators.
