Designed for comprehensive early literacy development

DIBELS 8th Edition is focused on foundational reading skills and comprehension through short, one-minute measures. Text Reading and Comprehension drills deep into how students make meaning from text, utilizes an authentic text library, and helps determine reading levels. Early Literacy Measures, used in conjunction with DIBELS 8th Edition, provides additional screening for dyslexia risk.

Letter naming fluency (LNF)

Students identify randomly mixed uppercase and lowercase letter names.

Knowledge of letter names

Phonemic segmentation fluency (PSF)

Students identify the initial sound in an orally presented word. Students segment three- and four-phoneme words into their individual phonemes.

Phonological and phonemic awareness

Grades K–1

DIBELS 8th Edition

Nonsense word fluency (NWF)

Students make letter-sound correspondences and read pseudowords.

Alphabetic principle and basic phonics

Word reading fluency (WRF)

Students read individual words aloud from a word list printed on a sheet of paper for one minute.

Fluency

Grades K–3

DIBELS 8th Edition

Oral reading fluency (ORF) with retell

Students read connected text accurately and fluently and extract meaning from text.

Advanced phonics, oral reading accuracy, fluency, comprehension of text

Grades 1–6

Online reading accuracy, fluency and comprehension

Students read grade-level words and connected text silently at an adequate rate with meaning.

Word accuracy, silent reading fluency, comprehension of text

Grades 1–6

DIBELS 8th Edition

Maze Online

Students read a grade-level passage in which some words are replaced by a multiple-choice box that includes the original word and two distractors. The student reads the passage silently and applies vocabulary and word knowledge to select the word in each box that best fits the meaning of the sentence.

Comprehension of text, vocabulary

Grades 2–6

Text reading and comprehension (TRC)

This assessment measures print concept and reading behaviors through a digital running record assessment that has students read authentic texts and answer comprehension questions about increasingly complex texts through retell/recall, and/or oral comprehension and written comprehension tasks.

Knowledge of print, reading readiness, phonics/oral reading accuracy, comprehension of text, vocabulary, constructed written response, spontaneous oral response

Grades K–6

TRC Online

Students silently read authentic texts of increasing complexity and are presented with deeper text-dependent comprehension questions and written comprehension tasks.

Silent reading fluency, vocabulary, comprehension of text, constructed written response

ELM

Vocabulary

This assessment is comprised of different multiple-choice tasks to determine the student’s level of knowledge of grade-level words, whether the student has strategies for making meaning of words encountered in text, and whether the student is applying this knowledge to making meaning from text.

Vocabulary

Grades K–3

ELM

Spelling

This assessment measures the spelling grade-level words. An audio prompt of the target word is provided and the student uses letter tiles to spell the word.

Reporting

Know, don’t guess. On-demand benchmark and progress-monitoring data, including skill profiles, classroom summaries, district reporting, and analysis tools help you support each student as an individual reader, create targeted small groups, and make informed decisions. Our approach to reporting is focused on helping all stakeholders use data effectively to make decisions to advance student learning.

Easy-to-use reports

Class summary

This report shows all students grouped by risk level, and their performance on each individual measure, along with local (district) performance percentiles.

Skill profile

This report shows a skill-based view of every student in the class, targeted instruction, and more.

Instruction

View grouping recommendations, instruction suggestions, targeted lesson plans, and intervention activities for each student in every class.

Comparing populations

Compare assessment results for different student populations, such as students in different schools, grades, or demographic categories.

Comparing measures

Compares assessment results for one population of students (e.g., all students in a school, all ELL students in a district) across all or some measures associated with each mCLASS assessment.

Correlation

This series of bar charts correlates results from one time period to a second time (to show effectiveness) or one measure to a second measure (to demonstrate measure correlation).

Benchmark completion

This bar chart shows the percentage of the total student population that has completed one or more assessments.

Progress monitoring fidelity

This report allows you to track progress monitoring fidelity.

Home Connect letter

Home Connect letters provide information about student results for completed measures, explain the relevance of the assessment measures in parent-friendly language, and recommend targeted activities so that students can practice related skills at home. Teachers can print these student summaries to send home and use them as a basis for discussion at parent-teacher conferences.

Instruction and intervention

mCLASS instruction provides teachers with a single view of the personalized, blended instruction (teacher-led and online) that is available to support individual student or small-group needs in skill areas directly assessed in the mCLASS assessment system. This includes:

  • Online student instruction and practice through Amplify Reading, which places students in a personalized instruction path based on mCLASS assessment data and adapts based on progress in the curriculum. Students engage with skills-based games as well as an eReader.
  • Teacher-led instruction for whole classes, small-groups, and individual students, including activities created by Susan Hall, author of I’ve DIBEL’d, Now What. Additional instructional resources for comprehension include grade-level passages and lesson templates that provide more practice in reading comprehension.
  • Rigorous, teacher-led intervention with mCLASS Intervention to address students most in need of support. Check out the mCLASS Intervention page for more details.

Amplify Reading

Amplify Reading provides students with targeted and engaging instruction and practice in the skill areas that students need to become successful readers, with a focus on the “Five Big Ideas” in early reading: phonological and phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, and accuracy and fluency.

Small Group Advisor

The mCLASS Small Group Advisor allows teachers and coaches to group students for instruction according to their risk levels in either foundational literacy skill areas or guided reading results and access targeted activities for these groups. SGA also recommends student activities for each group.

Item-Level Advisor

The mCLASS Item-Level Advisor provides insight by highlighting significant trends that emerge in each student’s results and by recommending reinforcement activities to help the student overcome identified skill deficiencies.

Comprehension

Instructional resources provide grade-level passages and best-practice lesson templates for close-reading and comprehension tasks. The lesson templates cover a wide range of reading comprehension skills that can be applied with the accompanied passages for additional practice in reading for deeper comprehension.

Intervention

The automatic nature of mCLASS Intervention makes targeted, staff-led, intervention a day to day possibility for busy staff. With mCLASS Intervention, what used to take educators hours—data analysis, grouping, writing targeted lessons—only takes minutes.
