9 Universal Screening Dynamic Indicators of Early Literacy Skills DIBELS/ DIBELS NEXT Texas Primary Reading Inventory Developmental Reading Assessment Classroom Assessments

10 DIBELS NEXT Benchmarks are administered BOY, MOY and EOY Assessments include: Letter Naming Fluency, First Sound Fluency, Phoneme Segmentation Fluency, Non-word Reading Fluency, Oral Reading Fluency, Retell Fluency, DAZE Progress is monitored weekly for at-risk students

11 Data-Driven Decision-Making Data collected weekly and graphed Team meets every 5-6 weeks to review progress If student is not at or above the aim line, changes are made to the intervention, intensity, group, tier of instruction, etc.

12 Interventions Address the Five Key Literacy Skills Phonemic Awareness Alphabetic Principle Decoding and Word Study Fluency Comprehension and Vocabulary
