Testing & Assessment

The following tests are administered at Canyon Rim Academy:

DIBELS - Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills
K-6th students are given this reading assessment three times a year; fall, winter and spring.  This test measures reading fluency, comprehension, and other important elements of reading.  It allows parents and teachers to see how students are progressing in reading and if additional help may be needed. Assessment results are not included in a child's final grade on their report card. 
DIBELS test results can be found in Aspire for 1st-6th grade students.  Kindergarten scores are not listed in Aspire, but can be obtained from your child's Kindergarten teacher.
