Progress Monitoring Materials for Writing

Like progress monitoring in reading, teachers have the option of choosing from commercial CBM writing tools or creating their own materials. Technical reports and samples of early progress monitoring measures are available at:


  • Sentence Copying
  • Story starters


  • Story Starters

Intervention Central

  • Writing probe generator for creating story starters

Research in Progress Monitoring Institute

  • This website provides the standard procedures for scoring writing samples. The writing prompts selected should be simple in grammatical structure, culturally non-biased and target appropriate background knowledge of the students.
