The easyCBM Math assessment is an online benchmark screening and progress monitoring tool developed at the University of Oregon. Educators use the data to make informed instructional decisions. The test items are multiple choice and testing occurs on a secure web site.
Two versions of this online mathematics assessment were developed at the University of Oregon, easyCBM CCSS Math and easyCBM NCTM Math. easyCBM CCSS Math is directly aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and has benchmark screening and progress monitoring assessments. easyCBM NCTM Math is based on the Focal Points from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and includes benchmark screening only. The assessments are not timed. Reports display raw scores and national percentiles.

The research for easyCBM Math started over 10 years ago and leverages 30 years of research in curriculum based measurement. Both versions of the math assessment use universal design and Item Response Theory to ensure accessibility and within-grade equivalency in the measures. Researchers at the University of Oregon developed national norms to be used in the screening process. Students scoring below the 40th percentile can be considered at some risk for poor mathematics outcomes. Students scoring below the 20th percentile can be considered at risk. Reliability and validity of the assessments are well established. (See our library of technical reports)
The UO DIBELS Data System provides full data management support for easyCBM NCTM Math and easyCBM CCSS Math.
Both easyCBM CCSS Math and easyCBM NCTM Math include benchmark testing 3 times per year for kindergarten through sixth grade. Progress monitoring is available for easyCBM CCSS Math only. The math assessment is administered online so there are no materials to purchase. The example tests give you an idea of the type of questions and level of difficulty your students will face.
All testing occurs on a secure web site. The assessment can be group administered in a computer lab or done individually on classroom workstations. The assessment includes 30 to 45 items and takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.
Our research to your classroom
Building upon decades of research on curriculum based measurement, the easyCBM CCSS Math project began in 2012 and continues today. Over 4,000 new test items were written to directly link to Common Core domains and standards. The items were piloted in schools and additional studies were conducted to create national norms. Developed by teams of math experts and classroom teachers, the test items range from easy to hard within each grade. Each test form has an adequate number of lower level items to detect small amounts of growth during progress monitoring.
The research for easyCBM NCTM Math was conducted from 2004 to 2010. A study including 10,525 students in approximately 60 schools produced national norms. Please consult our easyCBM NCTM Math document for more information about the NCTM version.
Students scoring below the 40th percentile can be considered at some risk for poor mathematics outcomes. Students scoring below the 20th percentile can be considered at risk.
