Tier 1

Tier 2

Tier 3


Defined as: reading instruction in the regular classroom for everyone

Defined as: those students who need extra support with small group instruction for prevention of further reading problems

Defined as: students who need even more intensive reading help and will delve deeper into reading problems for remediation


Function: This is for all students to receive high quality reading instruction. Students who master the reading skills from this tier, do not need extra support. When they are tested in DIBELS, they are achieving the benchmark goals. If they get the minimum score below in all areas, they will probably not need to get extra help from Tier 2.

Function:
The students who are not achieving the benchmark goals, need extra intervention. The teacher will put these students into small group settings during reading centers to work with them to help them get to benchmark. Their goal is to make these benchmarks goals below to not move to Tier 3. If they make the goals in Tier 1, then they do not need extra support in reading.

Function:
Even though, the students from Tier 2 are receiving extra help, it is not enough. They are still not responding as well as they need to from the intervention. There will be further testing with your help and we will decide what other support your child needs. Some possibilities are: setting up a meeting with the intervention team, tutoring after or before school, more aide time, or further testing.


Dibels tests:

Initial sound fluency (stating the beginning sound of a word quickly)
Beginning: 8+
middle: 25+

Letter Naming fluency (stating the names of the letters in one minute):
Beginning: 8+ letters
Middle: 27+ letters
End: 40+ letters

Phoneme Segmentation (saying each sound they hear in a word in one minute):
Middle: 18+ sounds
End: 35+ sounds

Nonsense word fluency (reading either the sounds or the whole fake word in one minute ex. gat):
Middle: 13+ sounds
End: 25+ sounds

If they make these benchmark scores on these tests, they are on grade level on for reading.

Dibels tests:

Initial sound fluency
Beginning: 4-7
middle: 10-24

Letter Naming fluency
Beginning: 2-7 letters
Middle: 15-26 letters
End: 29-39
letters

Phoneme Segmentation
Middle: 7-17 sounds
End: 10-34 sounds
Nonsense word fluency
Middle: 5-12 sounds
End: 15-24 sounds

If they make these goals, they stay at this level. If they do not, they move to Tier 3. If they surpass them, they move to Tier 1 and do not need extra support in reading.

Dibels tests:

Initial sound fluency
Beginning: 0-3
middle: 0-9

Letter Naming fluency
Beginning: 0-1 letters
Middle: 0-14 letters
End: 0-28
letters

Phoneme Segmentation
Middle: 0-6 sounds
End: 0-9 sounds

Nonsense word fluency
Middle: 0-4 sounds
End: 0-14 sounds

If they make these goals, they stay at this level but will need further testing and lots of support. If they make the scores from Tier 2, they move there. If they continue on and make the scores from Tier 1, they do not need extra support.
