Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 DIBELS What is DIBELS? DIBELS gives teachers an overall view of how students in grades K-6th are performing on important reading skills. How does it work? There are 6 different tests that can be given to measure one of the 5 important reading skills. Your child's grade and reading skill level will determine which test he/she will take. Each test is administered individually and takes 1-2 minutes per test.Your child will receive a numerical score for each assessment they are given. With that score, your child will be placed within 1 of 4 categories of achievement - high risk/ needs substantial intervention, moderate risk/needs additional intervention, low risk/ no intervention needed and on grade level, and above grade level. Reading skills explained Phonics - how your child learns sounds and connects them to letters in order to read words. Tested in K-2nd grades Reading Fluency - how easily and smoothly your child can read, which helps comprehension. Tested in 1st - 6th grades Why is it important?

Dr. Seuss Letter naming fluency: how quickly your child can recognize and name letters. Tested in k-1st grades Comprehension: what your child understands when he/she is reading something. Tested in 3rd-6th grades DIBELS assessments are given at least 3 times per year. Each assessment takes 1-2 minutes and gives teachers a better look at how your child is progressing in reading. It shows which skills are strengths and which skills need more attention and allows teachers to better focus on teaching specific needs to specific students. These tests are not all-inclusive and do not go in depth, but give your child'steacher a quick glance at the progress your child is making and allows for quick decisions to be made about reading instruction. The over-all goal of these assessments are to give teachers the maximum amount of time to teach while still being able to have a good picture ofhow your specific child is progressing. If your student takes the DIBELS assessments, please discuss the results with your child's teacherto have an overview of how your child is progressing and what you can do at home with them to further help them with reading.
