DIBELS® Math Early Release


Announcing DIBELS® Math Early Release

The authors of DIBELS® at Dynamic Measurement Group are pleased to announce the continued early release of DIBELS Math for research partners for the 2013 - 2014 school year. DIBELS Math is directly aligned with the Common Core Standards in Mathematics.  DIBELS Math consists of measures of Early Numeracy, Computation, and Concepts and Applications. Preliminary benchmark goals will be available in the Fall for the Early Numeracy and first through fifth grade Computation measures. Local normative information will be available for the Concepts and Applications measure and sixth grade Computation, with benchmark goals anticipated in the Fall of 2015.

All DIBELS Math Early Release materials will be made available to schools by August 15, 2013, available as a download through the DMG website. The early release version of DIBELS Math will remain free for the 2013 - 2014 school year. Participating schools will need to duplicate the testing materials. It is anticipated that DIBELS Math will be published and available for purchase starting with the 2015 - 2016 school year.

Sites will be provided with brief, free, web-based training on administering the DIBELS Math measures starting August 15th. A more in-depth DIBELS Math training session will be available this summer through the DIBELS Super Institute.

Participating schools will enter their math data into the DIBELSnet data reporting service. There is no cost for entering DIBELS Math scores for the 2013 - 2014 school year. If a school also wishes to enter DIBELS reading data into DIBELSnet, the standard cost of $1 per student per year will apply. To sign up for DIBELSnet, visit https://dibels.net and click on the "Sign Up" button.

If your school or district participated in the DIBELS Math Early Release in 2012 - 2013 and you wish to continue participating in 2013 - 2014, please e-mail us at info@dibels.org with your approximate testing dates for Fall, Winter, and Spring.


If your school or district is new to DIBELS Math and wishes to participate, please e-mail info@dibels.org.

In your email please include the following:

  1. The name of your school/district and the state in which you are located.
  2. The school/district contact person name, email address, and phone number who will receive communications about DIBELS Math.
  3. The approximate number of schools, grades, and students per grade who will be taking part in the DIBELS Math assessment.
  4. The approximate dates of benchmark testing windows for fall, winter, & spring.

We will also be inviting a small number of selected sites to collect additional data for research purposes in order to help develop the Concepts and Applications measure. There is no obligation to agree to collect any additional data in order to use the early release version of the DIBELS Math measures.
