The purpose of this preliminary study was to explore the reliability of Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) vocabulary-matching forms with students in an introduction to special education course in a college setting. Data from 84 students enrolled in a teacher preparation program across three semesters were examined. Results suggest low to moderate alternate form reliability with adjacent forms (r =.49) compared to the mean of two weekly forms (r =.65). Future directions on form development to strengthen reliability are discussed as well as implications for CBM use in college classrooms as a formative assessment tool.
