Dibels tests phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency and comprehension. In the early grades, they test letter recognition, letter sounds, nonsense words and initial sound fluency. However in grades 3-6, it is mostly fluency. Kids read 3 passages, each timed for one minute and then are asked to recall as manny details as possible. There is also a cloze reading portion called DaZE in intermediate. Kids read a passage that has blanks and 3 options for a word to fill in the blank. They have to circle the word that makes the most sense. There are maybe 40 blankets throughout the story and kids get 3 minutes to complete it.

The data is typically used to see which kids benchmark and who needs strategic or intensive interventions.
