Our district mandates that we use Dibles or an equivalent to Dibles to assess our students. How is the NWEA Reading Fluency similar to Dibles specifically in testing for phonological awareness and the principles of phonics?
Hi Brooke! Amy Schmidt, one of our designers who is very familiar with Reading Fluency, is working on an answer to your question. Meanwhile, you may want to take a look at the MAP Reading Fluency Fact Sheet if you have not already seen it. Please stay tuned!

Hi Brooke! MAP Reading Fluency assesses phonological awareness and phonics while providing information on the student’s zone of proximal development, with respect to those two areas. This enables educators to know what instructional areas to reinforce, and what new instructional areas to introduce with support. For phonics, MAP Reading Fluency measures letters and sounds, letters in words, decodable words: CVC, decodable words: one-syllable, and decodable words: one-syllable. For phonological awareness, MAP Reading Fluency measures: rhymes and syllables, initial sounds, blending & segmenting, and phonemic manipulation.
Hope this helps answer your question!
Hello ~Question came up about the difference in the WCPM from DIBELS to the MAP Reading Fluency. Our teachers have administered DIBLES for many years, we have just started to administer the MAP Reading Fluency. There are large discrepancies in the student data, students' DIBLES scores are lower. Is there research comparing the two or a crosswalk?
Thank you for your help,
