Curriculum-based measurement and Gickling's model of curriculum-based assessment have been proposed as approaches that more closely link assessment and intervention. Research has clearly supported the independent use of these two models in improving student learning, but some have argued for a more comprehensive approach that combines the different curriculum-based metrics. This article demonstrates procedures for implementing the two models concurrently in a comprehensive assessment and intervention system by discussing three case studies. The first is an example of reading difficulties in a general education setting, the second is a student experiencing mathematical difficulties in a general education curriculum, and the third is a student participating in special education for reading difficulties. Suggestions and cautions for practice are included.
