HOW ARE STUDENTS IDENTIFIED AS REQUIRING SUPPLEMENTAL READING INTERVENTION SUPPORT?
Our school uses the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) assessment to determine how students are performing on important foundational reading skills. The DIBELS measures assesses students on four of the five critical skills listed above. The DIBELS test is given three times a year (fall, winter, and spring). The results give the school information about whether or not a student is on track for grade-level reading success. We can quickly identify students who do not meet the goals on each DIBELS measure and provide reading intervention.
