Acadience® Reading is the new name of the DIBELS Next® literacy assessment. It is the same assessment you know and trust, authored by researchers Dr. Roland Good and Dr. Ruth Kaminski. In an expanded partnership
to deliver this powerful and effective K–6 assessment tool, Voyager Sopris Learning® continues to serve as the exclusive U.S. distributor for Acadience Reading K–6.
Improve Academic Success for Your Students and Schools
The Acadience Reading K–6 (previously published as DIBELS Next®) literacy assessment provides brief, formative indicators of the essential skills necessary for proficient reading in grades K–6.
Designed to predict early reading success and identify students experiencing difficulty in the acquisition of foundational literacy skills, Acadience Reading solutions provide early literacy support to prevent later reading difficulties.
Dyslexia Screening and the Use of Acadience Reading
Acadience Reading provides one of the best methods of identifying students who
are at risk for early reading difficulties, including dyslexia, monitoring those
students to determine whether they remain at risk, and identifying students who are
not making adequate progress and should be referred for further assessment.
Powerful and Practical Assessment by Renowned Researchers
For more than 25 years, Dr. Roland Good and Dr. Ruth Kaminski* have committed their careers to creating assessments and tools that help educators improve outcomes for students and schools. Acadience® Learning is a culmination of ongoing research and
development with consistent researchers.
**Drs. Good and Kaminski are not associated with
any new measures under the DIBELS name, such as DIBELS
8th Edition. The product known as DIBELS 6th Edition is no
longer available from Acadience Learning
