Well, I am the 4th grade chairperson for our schools SIP committee. (Student Intervention Program) It's a lot of work. During our meeting this morning we were presented for the first time with the DIBELS program. After the meeting I felt like I needed a drink! I took a valium instead :wink: and went to speak with our literacy specialist. No one trained us, they just threw this huge assessment packet into our laps. The lit specialist agreed that there needs to be an in-service or formal training for the program. After I sat down with her for 20 minutes, the program didn't really sound all that bad. We are going to have a specialist administer the tests as we watch so we can become familiar them. I suggest you ask your administration team to do the same for you.
