DIBELS Next Training
August 22, 2017, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. (Five CTLE hours) Tuition: $300

DIBELS (Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills) is comprised of '6' measures that function as indicators of the essential skills that every child must master to become a proficient reader. The DIBELS® measures are brief (most take one minute to administer), and are used to regularly monitor the development of early literacy and early reading skills. DIBELS was designed for use in identifying children experiencing difficulty in the acquisition of basic early literacy skills, in order to provide support early and prevent the occurrence of later reading difficulties. DIBELS measures grades K through 6th grade. 

DIBELS assessments are: 

1. Brief 
2. Reliable 
3. Efficient 
4. Formative 
5. Valid 
6. Standardized 
7. Individually administered 
8. Cost-effective
