Creating Maze Reading Passages

(from (5)

CBM is a process that is designed to monitor a student’s progress within the curriculum that is being used in the classroom. Passages have been developed to allow for standardization and use across classrooms, buildings, districts and the development of national norms, however, teachers may choose to monitor students’ progress within the specific setting and curriculum. This allows the teacher to monitor the student’s growth in direct relationship to what is being taught on any given day. Creating your own MAZE passages may be time consuming initially, but the end result may provide data that is a valuable indicator for appropriateness of placement, curriculum and the effectiveness of instruction.
