The mCLASS: 3D Reading program measures reading skill development of K-3 students using the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS®) and the Text Reading Comprehension (TRC) assessments. This combination of assessments measures five important reading skills all children must develop to become proficient readers:
Teachers gather this reading skill data about their students by administering the DIBELS® and TRC assessments and then entering the information into mCLASS: 3D Reading software via netbooks. The software then disaggregates the data, provides individualized assessment information about each student’s reading progress, and tracks the student’s progress during the school year.
Having Only Positive Expectations in 2015-2016!
