DIBELS Next Survey

DIBELS Next Survey is used to identify the appropriate progress monitoring and instructional levels for a student who is reading
below grade level.


DIBELS Next Survey is a set of testing materials useful for determining the appropriate progress monitoring level, determining the instructional level, and setting goals for students who have missed the prior benchmark goals and continue to struggle in acquiring basic early literacy skills. It may also be used with students who score in the strategic or intensive range during benchmark assessment as a way to get more information for instructional planning and goal setting.

The Survey materials are a separate set of DIBELS test forms for grades K-6 in one testing book, designed for use in testing students in successively lower levels of materials until their instructional and progress monitoring levels are found. DIBELS Next Survey also includes guidelines for setting goals, monitoring progress, and making instructional decisions. Survey is designed as a companion tool for use with DIBELS Next.
