    95% Group Diagnostic Assessment: PASI
    Our district has purchased online access for every single school to the 95% Group's diagnostic assessment.  Both DIBELS and the PASI supports our district-wide and state goal of ensuring that ALL students have a strong foundation of their phonological awareness and phonics skills.   A great analogy shared by the 95% Group about identifying at risk kids is- "DIBELS tells you the house is on fire and the PASI tells you where the fire is."  Each school gets their own specific access code where every single teacher can log in, download, and print the assessments. If you would like to get the code for your school, please email Tiffany Khauo and make sure the name of your school is in the subject or body of your email.

    Why DIBEL?
    Dr. Roland Good, co-author of DIBELS, said, "DIBELS are not important. They are indicators of something important."  Not sure what that means? Click on Reading Acquisition to see image that best depicts the importance of the DIBELS measures and how it connects to the Foundational Skills Continuum.
    Here is the reference guide for the DIBELS/TRC requirements for 2016-2017.  
    1. All students in grades K-6 MUST take the DIBELS Next or TRC. If the student is not an EL or SWD, the teacher has the option of administering DIBELS or TRC for literacy measures 3 times a year. Not giving an assessment is not an option unless the Principal has submitted a waiver to the Director indicating that another assessment will be given in place of the district assessments. The superintendent has to approve said request. 
    2. EL's and SWDs must take DIBELS because the data is used for reclassification purposes. 
     
     

    TRC Benchmark GOALS

    The chart list the benchmark goals by grade level according to the BOY, MOY, and EOY.  It also notes the LEXILE equivalent and the Hasbrouck and Tindal fluency goals.  Note that these goals are slightly higher than the DIBELS goals. 
     
     
     
    Click above to login to give the DIBELS or TRC assessments.  The url is mclasshome.com/assessment. Teachers have access to both platforms.  Remember to sync your data.   If you are having trouble logging in, please try two things first before reaching out.
    1. Type in lausd:: before your single sign on.
    2. If you have recently changed your SSO password, clear all your history, cache, cookies and then try logging  in.   Sometimes your laptop or tablet remembers your old password and will refuse your new password, even if it's correct.
