DIBELS 8 Administration Supplement: Testing Guidance for the Beginning of the 2020-2021 Academic Year

In this guide, we offer recommendations for beginning of year (BOY) benchmark testing with DIBELS 8 as well as tips for interpreting benchmark data given the ongoing widespread disruptions to school.

We have also created files with administration directions and remote practice items to help streamline remote testing. They can be downloaded on our materials page.

The DIBELS Data System now has an optional data entry field to allow you to indicate if an assessment was administered remotely. You can view that indicator on the Class List Report.

We are offering free access to our DIBELS Training Courses during this time of remote learning. Offer ends on Sept 30, 2020. DDS users contact us to have the course enabled in your data system account. Non-DDS users, sign up for access.
