Help Struggling Students Reach Benchmark Reading Goals
Acadience®Reading Survey, previously published as DIBELS Next®Survey, is a set of testing materials administered to students who have not reached benchmark goals. This set of alternate
forms of Acadience Reading is useful for determining the appropriate instructional and progress-monitoring levels and to help students struggling with acquiring basic early literacy skills.
Empower Educators with Powerful, Effective Assessment Tools
Acadience Reading Survey is a robust assessment for educators because it is:
User friendly and efficient
Meets the same technical adequacy standards as Acadience Reading K–6
Helps educators determine the optimal progress-monitoring level for students who are below benchmark
Supports educators in identifying appropriate and ambitious goals that lead to accelerated student performance
Administer Student Surveying with Ease and Efficiency
Acadience Reading Survey minimizes taking important teaching time away from educators as it:
Ensures no time is wasted by progress monitoring too high or too low
Accurately identifies the level of materials needed for progress monitoring
Supports teachers in selecting intervention materials at the right level
Only takes 5–20 minutes per student to administer
Who Benefits from Acadience Reading Survey?
Acadience Reading Survey benefits students, and teachers of those students, who may require off-grade-level progress monitoring to accurately measure academic growth. For students with below-grade-level reading skills, it is critical to their
appropriate level to gauge their growth during the school year.
