Placement Testing Your Students

Because the DI programs are oriented toward students’ skill proficiency rather than their age or grade level, it is critical that teachers use the level of the DI programs that corresponds to their students’ current skill level. You can determine which level of the program matches your students’ current instructional needs by administering the placement tests contained in all DI programs. 

Test Administration Procedure

You can find the placement tests linked below. Here is the procedure to follow when administering the placement tests:

1. Give students the test that corresponds to their grade level.
2a. If students pass the grade-level test, give them the test for the next-highest level of the DI Program. Continue   
       testing up a level until students don’t pass the test.
2b. If students fail the grade-level test, give them the test for the next lowest level. Continue testing down a level   
       until students pass the test.
3.   Record the highest level that each student passes on a   pdf summary spreadsheet .
4.   Group students into homogenous instructional groupings or consult with your NIFDI Implementation Manager.

Repeat the four steps for each DI subject area.
