Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills Next (DIBELS Next) assesses a student's competence in foundational reading skills. These skills predict later reading success. In the Blue Valley elementary schools, reading specialists may use DIBELS Next with students who receive reading support in order to monitor their progress. Please note that all DIBELS Next subtests are not administered beyond first grade. After second grade, DIBELS Next assessments are tests of oral reading fluency and comprehension.
