Daze Assessment

Daze is the only mCLASS:DIBELS Next measure not assessed with a mobile device. Administer the Daze assessment to your entire class using the correct form for the grade and time of year.

Daze can be given to a whole class at the same time, to a small group of students, or individually. Using standardized directions, ask your students to read a Daze passage silently and to circle their word choices. The student receives credit for selecting the words that best fit the omitted words in the reading passage.

Scoring a Daze Passage

The score a student receives on a Daze passage has two components: correct responses and incorrect responses. After scoring the Daze passage, sum up the total the number of correct responses, then sum up the total number of incorrect responses. After you have tallied the correct responses for each student, enter Benchmark results on the Class Summary: Time of Year tab or enter Progress Monitoring results on the Student Summary page of mCLASS:Home.

Note: If the student did not finish reading the passage, do not count empty boxes after the student's final response as incorrect responses.
