Insight is a powerful web-based platform that facilitates quick and easy administration of the CUBED assessments (Narrative Language Measures and Dynamic Decoding Meastures) using a tablet, laptop or computer. Scoring is done in real time, allowing the examiner to receive immediate feedback on each student’s risk status. Learn more about the CUBED here.
Educators can view an individual student’s performance across all of the different CUBED assessments, as well as summarized data for a caseload, classroom, grade, school, or district. Individual student progress can be monitored regularly and compared to benchmark expectations and district averages. Read more here.
CUBED Insight helps educators organize students into intervention groups. An entire classroom, grade, or specific group of students can be sorted according to a hierarchy of language-related and decoding-related needs. Educators can then build intervention groups in based on the needs identified in CUBED Insight. Read more here.
VALID AND RELIABLE
There is considerable evidence to support the validity and reliability of the CUBED especially with culturally and linguistically diverse students. The CUBED can be used as a universal screener and a progress monitoring measure of phonemic awareness, decoding, reading fluency, and language and reading comprehension. It can help educators accurately identify diverse students who need supplemental and intensive intervention, and can play a vital role in multi-tiered system of supports for decoding and comprehension.

REDUCE CULTURAL AND LINGUISTIC BIAS
Across culturally and linguistically diverse students (including Hispanic, Native American, and African American students, and students from low socio-economic backgrounds), research shows that the CUBED has limited assessment bias and excellent predictive validity.
