What is a DIBEL?

You may have heard the term, DIBELS and wondered, “What is a DIBEL?” The acronym DIBEL stands for Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills. This is a reading assessment used mostly in grades K-6 to determine the reading level of students and to provide teachers with data to help students become better readers. Dana Rhinehart is our 6th grade reading specialist and does a great job administering the DIBELS assessment. She also does a great job sharing data with the other teachers to enable them to help their students.
