What is it? Dynamic Indicator of Basic Early Literacy Skills.

When do they take it? Students have formal testing three times a year: at the beginning of school, in January and at the end of the year.

Where do they take it? Students go with one of our reading coaches to take the test one on one for those three testing times, however students are monitored more regularly based on their performance by me.

Why is it needed? An important piece of the puzzle to unlocking your child’s reading potential. How is the data used? Dibels scores give us a good indication of what skills students need to connect the pieces of the reading puzzle. Their scores give us information about how best to teach and support them in learning goals.


Aug. Oral Reading Fluency = 44

Jan. Oral Reading Fluency = 65

May Oral Reading Fluency = 90

  • The benchmark level represents the 40th percentile. We are aiming much higher. We want each child to perform at his or her maximum potential.
