1 INTRODUCTION TO THE FAST SYSTEM The FAST Team University of Minnesota Theodore J. Christ, PhD

2 Why was FAST developed?

3 The FAST Team works with teachers who guide research, development and improvement.

4 Teachers told us… Assessments take too much time and organization So the FAST Team … Automated scoring Automated reports Adopted brief assessments Teachers told us… Assessments take too much time and organization So the FAST Team … Automated scoring Automated reports Adopted brief assessments

5 What is FAST?

6 General Features Browser-based User Interface Online database Online administration Online scoring Online reporting Suite of Assessments for Teachers

7 Administration Using FAST View of screen

8 Curriculum Based Measurement for Reading (CBM-R) is an evidence-based assessment for screening and monitoring student progress across the primary grades (1 st to 6 th ). Computer adaptive measures of broad Reading (K-12) and Math (K-5) that are individualized for each student. Assessments Evidence-based assessment for screening and monitoring student progress in the early primary grades (K & 1 st ).

9 Teachers score online during administration. Oral Passage Readings  Measure of oral reading accuracy & rate (1 st to 6 th ) Screening (Fall, Winter, Spring) 3 min per student Progress Monitor 1 min per student 20 alternate forms per grade Measure of oral reading accuracy & rate (1 st to 6 th ) Screening (Fall, Winter, Spring) 3 min per student Progress Monitor 1 min per student 20 alternate forms per grade Online Administration & Scoring

10 Teachers score online during administration. Online Administration & Scoring Sight Words  Letter Sounds  Word Rhyming  Measures of critical early reading skills via 11 subtests Screening (Fall, Winter, Spring) 1-2 minutes per test 8-10 min per student using composite - 4 subtests Progress Monitor (8 subtests) 1-2 min per student/test 20 alternate forms for most Measures of critical early reading skills via 11 subtests Screening (Fall, Winter, Spring) 1-2 minutes per test 8-10 min per student using composite - 4 subtests Progress Monitor (8 subtests) 1-2 min per student/test 20 alternate forms for most

11 Computer administered and scored. Measure of broad reading achievement (K to 12 th ) Screening (Fall, Winter, Spring) 6-15 min per student Progress Monitor & Skills Analysis Coming Soon Measure of broad reading achievement (K to 12 th ) Screening (Fall, Winter, Spring) 6-15 min per student Progress Monitor & Skills Analysis Coming Soon Online Administration & Scoring

12 Computer administered and scored. Measure of broad math achievement (K to 5 th ) Screening (Fall, Winter, Spring) 6 to 15 min per student Measure of broad math achievement (K to 5 th ) Screening (Fall, Winter, Spring) 6 to 15 min per student Online Administration & Scoring

23 Supporting Research Brief overview of research in support of CBM-R and aReading CBM-R – 30+ years of research supports its use as a screening tool to identify students at risk and monitor progress to evaluate instructional effects and response to instruction. – CBM-R is a robust indicator of overall reading health; especially for students in the primary grades.
