Notes:This is a free paper assessment that must be administered one on one to students by a teacher. Thus, open to teacher-testing error and bias! Tests phonological awareness, nonsense word fluency, and fluency with connected text. This is considered to be early reading. Schools can pay $1 per student per year to be able to enter raw data and get report generation. The DORA automatically scores all tests and results are immediate. DIBELS doesn't look at as many measures and also isn't as thorough. It is considered a "screening" test by the authors of the test where our assessment is a true "diagnostic" assessment. See full analysis on main sales tool page. Sopris West prints paper versions of DIBELS that schools may purchase.
