CUBED Video Resources/Demonstrations

Below are videos demonstrating how to score the NLM Listening and NLM Reading assessments. These videos are intended to supplement the information provided in the CUBED Manual. It is strongly recommended that the examiner read the manual thoroughly and use it as a reference to increase administration and scoring accuracy. 

 

NLM Reading Training Videos

In these videos, the examiner is administering the Narrative Language Measures (NLM) Reading. The examiner asks the child to read the story and then retell the story. Optional subtests of the NLM Reading allow for the examiner to ask comprehension questions, and the child can also be prompted to write their own personal story. Scoring can be done in real-time, while the child is retelling the story. Usually it is easier to hear children retell their stories in person. The audio recording can pick up ambient noise more than desired.

Materials Needed: A printed copy or access to the digital CUBED Narrative Language Measures (NLM) Reading scoring form and a stopwatch. 

Instructions: Score this child's responses first by just listening to the video (don't watch it). After you score the child's responses independently, go back and watch the video and compare your scores. We recommend watching it at full screen to see scoring clearly.

Scoring notes for Decoding Fluency measure: Remember that the child needs to correctly read every word of the story to receive their points. If the word is read incorrectly, that word is subtracted from their score. To correctly administer the assessment, the examiner must use a stopwatch to time the reading portion, and mark the last word read in one minute. The student should continue reading the entire story (examiner should continue to mark words read incorrectly - though they do not count against score). 

Scoring notes for Reading Retell measure: The Student does not need to say everything word-for-word when retelling the story, nor does the child need to say every possible example provided to get points. Refer to the CUBED manual for more details on scoring.

NLM Listening Training Videos

In these videos, the examiner is administering the Narrative Language Measures (NLM) Listening. The examiner asks the child to listen to the story and then retell the story. Optional subtests of the NLM Listening allow for the examiner to ask comprehension questions, and the child can also be prompted to share their own personal story. Scoring can be done in real-time, while the child is retelling the story. Usually it is easier to hear children retell their stories in person. The audio recording can pick up ambient noise more than desired. Initially, you may want to audio record students' narratives to review scoring accuracy, or to score at a later time.

Materials Needed: A printed copy or access to the digital CUBED Narrative Language Measures (NLM) Listening scoring form. 

Instructions: Score this child's responses first by just listening to the video (don't watch it). After you score the child's responses independently, go back and watch the video and compare your scores. We recommend watching it at full screen to see scoring clearly.
