Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills Assessment Form - Third Grade

Third Grade
All students at our school are screened for reading difficulties three times a year using the
Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) Next. This is one assessment that
helps us identify students who may need extra help in learning the skills needed to become a
strong reader. Your child’s performance on this assessment follows:

Teacher Comments:
DIBELS Oral Reading Fluency (DORF)
On the DORF assessment, your child will read three passages appropriate for his/her grade level for one minute and
then asked to retell what was read. The teacher will calculate the words read correctly (Words Correct– WC), your
child’s accuracy rate, and the number of words your child uses to appropriately retell what was read. Retelling the story
or text is important because it gives the teacher an indication if your child not only can read the words, but can
understand what he/she is reading as well. The median WC, accuracy and retell will be used as your child’s score on
this assessment. The teacher may also judge the quality of your child’s retell on a 1-4 scale (1– 2 or fewer details; 4– 3
or more details that captures the main idea). Although this scale is not used to determine your child’s overall score, it
provides helpful information for instruction.
DAZE
The DAZE is a measure of your child’s ability to understand what he/she reads.
This assessment is typically
administered to the whole class at the same time. Your child will be asked to silently read a grade level passage for 3
minutes.
Every seventh word in the passage has been replaced by a box containing the correct word and two
“distractor” words. Credit is given for each correct answer.
Composite Score
The Composite Score is a combination of the assessments and provides the best overall estimate of your child’s reading
proficiency.

Core
An instructional recommendation of “core” means that the odds are in your child’s favor of achieving later reading goals
with a continuing effective curriculum and instruction.
Strategic
An instructional recommendation of “strategic” means that the odds of achieving later reading goals are approximately
50% without added instructional support in addition to core reading instruction. If your child’s performance fell within this
category, he/she will likely require intervention in addition to core reading instruction. Small group instruction targeting
specific skills may be required. This intervention may be provided by your child’s classroom teacher and/or a reading
specialist.
Intensive
An instructional recommendation of “intensive” means that your child’s odds of achieving later reading goals are approxi-
mately 10-20% without substantial intervention and support in addition to core reading instruction. Your child will require
small group intensive intervention targeting specific skills. Your child is likely to receive small group intervention both in
the classroom as well as with a reading specialist.
