DIBELS Benchmarks Chart
Students are given the DIBELS assessment three times each year to assess their growth in reading. The DIBELS test has several components. In third grade the DIBELS test assesses oral reading fluency (DORF), reading accuracy, the student's ability to retell information about the passage they read and the quality of their retell, and finally their ability to make predictions in text while they are reading (DAZE). All of these components are factored in to the student's overall composite score. Below is a chart that shows DIBELS Benchmark goals for grades K through 6.
