2017 DDS Research Partnership Opportunities
CTL researchers are currently evaluating the impact of an innovative, online curriculum for students in grades 1-2 that includes more than 7,000 engaging puzzles, games, books, and other learning activities.
By participating, you will receive ongoing support to implement these materials with your students for at least 60 minutes per week through the end of the school year. Learn more and sign up or email firstname.lastname@example.org
CTL researchers have also developed an innovative reading comprehension assessment, the Multiple-choice Online Causal Comprehension Assessment (MOCCA). MOCCA is a web-based assessment that identifies why students comprehend text poorly and provides instructionally relevant results that help teachers determine the comprehension needs of their students.
We are recruiting nationally for students in grade 3-5 to take our measure once during early Spring 2017. Learn more and sign up or email email@example.com
Participate in a Study Developing a New Diagnostic Reading Comprehension Assessment
CTL researchers are developing an innovative reading comprehension assessment called the Multiple-choice Online Causal Comprehension Assessment (MOCCA).
MOCCA is a web-based assessment that identifies why students comprehend text poorly and provides instructionally relevant results that help teachers determine the comprehension needs of their students. Learn more by watching this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9bQBXiOmgs.
We are looking to recruit nationally for Grade 3-5 students to take our measure once during January-March 2017. Interested district or school leaders and teachers can communicate their interest by completing a brief survey at: https://oregon.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_8IfgQlQtRoKupyB

Efficiently create student groups to teach specific skills.
The Instructional Grouping Report provides a strategy for education professionals to sort their students based on a pattern of performance on two or more DIBELS assessments.
Instructional groupings should be thought of as initial recommendations and the report is responsive, allowing teachers to move students between groups based on additional information and classroom resources. View a sample report.
Instructional Grouping Worksheets are also available for those who prefer to manually create groupings.
Communicate with parents about student goals and progress.
We added a Parent Report to DDS to facilitate communication with parents about their student's goals and progress.
The Parent Report includes all benchmark assessment scores across all measures in both literacy and math for a single year. Individual student goals set using the Zones of Growth feature are also included.
The Parent Report is available in both English and Spanish. View a sample report.
Setting and evaluating learning goals for each student can be challenging.
The DIBELS Data System Zones of Growth feature provides educators with an easy, empirically based way to set individualized student literacy goals and evaluate students' progress towards those goals.
Zones of Growth combines students' baseline performance on key DIBELS measures with normative data regarding average and above-average growth for students with similar initial skill level to help teachers set ambitious, yet realistic learning goals for students.

New DDS Reports for Goal Setting and Instructional Planning
The Center on Teaching and Learning is working with researchers at the Florida Center for Reading Research to develop reports that help teachers and administrators set goals and plan instruction.
Thank you for your feedback. It will be used to help us revise and refine the new reports.
