I'm with you MaryBeth. DIBELS is not my favorite way to assess students either but sadly it is required. I try to stay positive and view it as another measure by which to gather additional information on my students. I'm taking the class next semester on assessments, looking forward to learning about the ERSI. It seems much more developmentally appropriate and provides better insight into exactly what each child needs.

    Thanks for the info! I'm not a huge fan of Dibbles, so that's nice to have an alternate assessment to use!

      Ditto that - not a huge fan at all. We have to use it, though, systemwide here, so we try to take the information we can glean from it and use it the best way we can. I would love to learn more about ... more

        Everything I have heard from younger grade teachers seems to be on the negative side when it comes to DIBELS. What drew the school system to it.
