Curriculum based measures are conducted in order to observe a student’s progress and gauge the development in the school’s curriculum. Schools are in need of gathering data to discover if students are progressing towards achieving proficiency on state standardized tests. This research determines what score or corresponding percentile needs to be reached on the MAP test in order to achieve mastery on WESTEST 2. Data was compared from students in a rural county in West Virginia who were tested in Mathematics and Reading on the MAP test and WESTEST 2. A Pearson product correlation between both the MAP test and WESTEST 2 was also calculated as well as the coefficient of determination. Results of this study projected what score or percentile in grades 3rd through 9th would be necessary in order to achieve mastery on the WESTEST 2. Future studies should include a broader range of schools in West Virginia.
