How to Enter and Access DIBELS Data


DIBEL-ing has become a new verb in our shared Orcutt language. I often hear from the teachers at Patterson, “has my student been DIBEL-ed yet?” or “when are we DIBEL-ing?” Once the students have been DIBEL-ed or DIBEL-ing has been completed, the natural next step is to enter and review DIBELS data.


With teachers taking the reins of DIBELS Progress Monitoring, accessing data feels like the reward for this hard work. The data management system in DIBELS is broad and complex. Deciding which reports to run for teacher use and parents can be confusing. So can entering data. In response to the questions from teachers that are DIBELS Progress Monitoring, I have created a few tutorials with step-by-step instructions.
