Updates for the 2021-2022 School Year

  • DIBELS 8 Assessment Materials Updates for 2021-2022

    A limited set of DIBELS 8th Edition Student Assessment Materials and Scoring Materials have been updated for 2021-2022. Apart from the Grade 5 ORF benchmark (BM) passage and the Grades 2-8 Maze progress monitoring (PM) materials, schools that have already printed their 2021-2022 materials will find that the changes are quite minor and do not necessitate re-printing. All other materials remain the same as they were last year.
