Assessment Based on the Curriculum

By

Definition:

CBA or Curriculum Based Assessment is assessment that is related to both IEP goals and the curriculum.

Sometimes, CBA can be assessments that come directly from the curriculum, such as chapter tests. Many publishers are even providing differentiated assessments or adapted assessments for children with disabilities which are well suited to their differences. Check you text books.

At other times, teacher may chose to find web based math or reading materials to create their curriculum based assessments, especially for math IEP goals.

Also Known As: Curriculum Based Evaluation
Examples:
When assessing Marty's math IEP goals, Ms. Miller creates Curriculum Based Assessments by generating 20 two digit mixed addition problems, with and without regrouping, using one of her favorite worksheet web sites.
