DIBELS Deep Training - Comprehension, Fluency and Oral Language (CFOL)
Regional Trainings - September 2015 - October 2015

AUDIENCE: Administrators, teachers, interventionists, special educators

We are pleased to announce the release of CFOL, the last component of DIBELS Deep for the 2015-2016 school year and with that we have a unique opportunity for training. We will partner with Dynamic Measurement Group (DMG) the publishers and authors of DIBELS Deep to provide state wide face to face trainings for large groups (80-100). This no-cost training will be conducted by DMG and will focus on a thorough understanding of how to use and administer all components (PA, WRD annd CFOL) of this research-based diagnostic. This will be our final training on DIBELS Deep, this is not our typical TOT model so please send those teachers who will be most likely to give your diagnostic assessment and will be able to support others in their schools.

What you need to know:

  • CFOL will not be available on mCLASS until 2016-17, however districts will receive CFOL kits (one per grade per school) by the end of August which means that it will be given paper pencil for this school year
  • Training materials will be provided and all attendees should bring a CFOL kit with them (if at all possible) and your PA / WRD kit
  • This training will focus on the administration of all components of DEEP and is appropriate even if you have attended another DEEP training offered through the project
  • This training is for teachers/interventionist/special educators/coaches who will be giving the assessment this year to build capacity and understanding around diagnostic assessment
  • This will be our last face to face training opportunity for DIBELS Deep, so take advantage of hearing it straight from the publishers of this rich assessment

Please register as soon as possible as it will be a first come first serve opportunity.
