Access Fee: Subscription fees vary. As an example, access to CIBS-R Online for my district with five elementary buildings and a middle school is $134.95 per building for the first year (for two to 10 buildings). Annual renewal is $101.95 per building (for two to 10 buildings). The subscription fee covers unlimited use by anyone in the building.

Audience: The CIBS-R Management System was developed for users of the BRIGANCE Comprehensive Inventory of Basic Skills--Revised (CIBS-R). Teachers, administrators, psychologists, clinicians, diagnosticians, counselors, and others involved in the special education process in preK-9 settings will find the management system extremely useful. Of course, those who don't use the test won't want to use the management system.

Format: CIBS-R Online is a Web-based, password-accessed subscription service that provides a management system for testing and evaluating specific student skills and keeping track of progress from one year to the next.

Description: The CIBS-R Management System is basically a Web-based student record book, scoring sheet, scorer, and performance tracker for student progress as measured by the BRIGANCE Comprehensive Inventory of Basic Skills--Revised (CIBS-R). Responses can be recorded on paper, then entered in the management system, or entered directly into the management system as the assessment is given. Individual testing becomes especially easy if the person administering the assessment has the student sitting beside a desktop or laptop computer while the test is given.

Reviewer Comments:

Installation/Access: There is no real installation and access is as simple as paying the fee, getting the password, and going to the Internet. The site is well designed and contains no unnecessary visuals or sound to slow access or use. Installation/ Access Rating:A

Content/Features: Since the CIBSR Management System can only be used with the BRIGANCE Comprehensive Inventory of Basic Skills--Revised (CIBS-R), I'll begin by briefly describing the assessment itself. The criterion-referenced inventory offers normed/standardized testing options in some assessment areas. The inventory is extremely flexible and can assess any of the 154 areas that teachers or other personnel decide are necessary.

Each skill section has step-by-step instructions; the results are expressed in terms of mastered or not mastered. The inventory, can be used for readiness assessment, pre-testing, or measuring student progress. It produces composite scores for basic reading, reading comprehension, written expression, listening comprehension and math, and an "information processing" score. …
