Speedboat vs. Oil Tanker You do an intervention with a second grader, you’re changing direction on a speedboat, but when you do an intervention with a fifth grader, you’re changing direction on an oil tanker. – Catherine E. Snow, professor of education, Harvard Graduate School of Education

How Composite ScoreIs Calculated The mobile device calculates the score automatically. FSF Score + LNF Score + PSF Score + NWF CLS Score = DIBELS® Composite Score DORF Words Correct + Retell Score (x 2) + DORF Accuracy Percent Value = DIBELS® Composite Score Kindergarten, MOY Grade 2, MOY www.dibels.com/next/downloads/DIBELSNextBenchmarkGoals.pdf

LNF Scoring Rules, page 1 of 2 Letter Similarities: Mark correct a lower case L named I. upper case L and lower case L upper case i
LNF Scoring Rules, page 2 of 2 Incorrect and omitted letters: Indicate incorrect or skipped letters by tapping the letters. For a skipped row, tap the X that precedes it. Letter Read Incorrectly or Skipped Skipped Line
LNF One-Time Reminders • If a student names letters from top to bottom, or points randomly, say, “Go this way,” and sweep your finger across the row. • If the student skips four or more consecutive letters, but does not skip the whole row, say, “Try to say each letter name.” • If the student says letter sounds, rather than letter names, say, “Say the letter name, not its sound.”
LNF As-Needed Reminders • When a student stops (and it’s not a hesitation on a specific item), the teacher can say, “Keep going.” • If the student loses his/her place, the teacher can point to the page.
LNF Check for Understanding LNF assessments are only administered during the ______________ times of year. Mark correct the lower case letter ____ read as an ____. Students identify the _________ of the letters, not the _________. The ability to identify the letters of the alphabet is a reliable indicator of _________ in learning to read. If a student ______ a row, tap the gray “X” to the left of the line. ___________ to the page to show the student where to resume reading if she loses her place. Word Bank: skips, I, risk, point, sounds, names, risk, benchmark, L
LNF is a reliable indicator of risk. Do not penalize students who confuse lowercase letter L with uppercase letter I. There is no Progress Monitoring for LNF. There are no Benchmark goals for LNF, yet it is included in the calculations for the Composite Score. __________________________________ __________________________________ LNF Points to Remember

What questions do you have? ____________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________ • Write your Aha moment on a sticky note, then attach it to the chart. • What would you do if Jake’s LNF assessment data showed: • A pattern of identifying letter sounds instead of names? ____________________________________________________________________
FSF: First Sound Fluency /ch/ /ea/ /f/ The word “chief” comprises three phonemes. Measures the ability to isolate the first sound in a word
What is Phonemic Awareness? • The ability to recognize, produce, and manipulate soundsin spoken language • “bat” comprises the sounds: • “chop” comprises the sounds: • “box” comprises the sounds: • “dried” comprises the sounds: /b/ /a/ /t/ /p/ /ch/ /o/ /b/ /o/ /k/ /s/ /d/ /d/ /r/ /ie/
