Product Description
The DIBELS Daze is a three minute test given three times a year. It measures the fluency and comprehension of students. Student responses are timed for three minutes, and the stronger a reader is, the more maze items they will encounter in that three minute timing.

The reason the DAZE is given three times a year is because it is a strong indicator of reading comprehension, because completing the maze task requires students to understand what they are reading.

When I received my intervention students' DIBELS Scores, I could see really quick that the DAZE component had to improve.

I was determined to help my students increase their DAZE scores, so I began to create mini DAZE practice paragraphs and passages on my own. My goal was to teach my students the format of the test and strategies to reach the Benchmark cut off scores each time.

First, I taught them about the format of the assessment, then we discussed strategies that would help ensure that they would choose the best words throughout the passage. After practicing short paragraphs and longer passages, I began to notice a huge increase in their DAZE scores. I was thrilled!

In this DIBELS DAZE set of practice tests, Students are presented with a maze of options (i.e., three possible word choices for the blank). One of the words in the maze is always correct, and the other two are incorrect. Daze requires students to choose the correct word as they read the passage.

The more I practice with my students, the better they got at taking the DIBELS DAZE assessment.
