Dibels, using the Palm

I do like using the palm for recording and scoring Dibels.  I’ve done it for three years manually.  The Palm is much easier.  I did the Initial Sound Fluency and the Letter Naming Fluency with 25 students in one day.  I have three more students to do tomorrow and I will be finished.  They are newer students and have to be uploaded to the Palm still.  I was reasonably impressed with how well most of them did.  But until I upload the data, I don’t know for sure where we stand.  I’m pretty sure that they did better overall than my class did last year at the beginning of the year.  When I sync the Palm tomorrow it will download the new students to the Palm and upload the finished assessments at the same time.

Cool.

  1. There are some indications that the families here are a little more well off than the ones at my previous school. We actually have a functioning SafeKey program, and several kids are picked up by daycare buses after school. I think there were more latchkey kids at my other school or more family arraignments for daycare. The demographics on paper are very similar though. I checked when I applied here.
