1: Screen

2: Diagnose

Screening measures (AIMSweb®, DIBELS®) will identify students who are struggling to read grade-level text fluently.

Our free Diagnostic Decoding Surveys (DDS) (pp. 2–3) will help identify which students have decoding deficits. In just minutes, they identify which types of words students are struggling with and the phonics features causing confusion.


ent, confident readers.

3: Group

4: Teach

When you combine the results from an Oral Reading Fluency (ORF) and the DDS (pp. 2–3), the data can be used to group students for decoding instruction.

Provide students with appropriate instruction based on their specific needs.

Strong Decoder

Slow Reading Rate

Specific Decoding Weakness

Mild Decoding Weakness

Moderate Decoding Weakness

Significant Decoding Weakness

Severe Decoding Weakness

Recommend Further Testing

Decoding is not a significant problem for these students and is not impairing their reading comprehension. Students with a slow reading rate will benefit from fluency instruction.

These students are strong with the basics, but struggle with more complex words. They need targeted phonics instruction.

Phonics Blitz™ (pp. 4–5) is the appropriate Tier 2 intervention solution for students in grades 4–12. Phonics Boost™ should be used for students in grades 2–3.

These students need a Tier 3 phonics based intervention. Phonics Boost (pp. 6–7) is an appropriate solution for these students. When students have severe decoding weaknesses, Phonics Boost supplemented with Phonics Boost Plus™ (p. 9) may be the right solution for them.

Something other than decoding is interfering with students’ ability to decode.


Diagnose & Group

Phonics Suite™

Diagnostic Decoding Surveys Teachers across the country use the Diagnostic Decoding Surveys to accurately and efficiently identify gaps in phonics knowledge. The surveys assess a student's ability to read familiar and unfamiliar words with varied levels of phonics complexity. The Diagnostic Decoding Surveys have seven different forms for progress monitoring. Administering both surveys takes just five minutes.

Decoding Surveys User’s Guide Provides all the information needed to administer, score, and interpret both surveys, including reproducible blackline masters of scoring sheets for the seven forms (A–G) of both surveys. The User’s Guide explains the research supporting the surveys and how they fit into an RtI model.

Quick Facts Informal diagnostic tool Pinpoints decoding weaknesses Works for students in grades 1–12

The Grouping Matrix ™ This free, web-based program enables you to group students (from the middle of grade 1 through grade 12) according to the type and depth of their decoding difficulties. The Grouping Matrix also provides instructional recommendations for each group of students and allows you to track individual and group progress. (To see grouping categories, refer to the chart on the inside front cover.)

Phonics Suite™

Phonics Blitz™ Phonics Blitz is a set of 50 explicit, multisensory lessons designed for students in grades 4–12 who have gaps in their phonics knowledge and are struggling to read fluently. Phonics Blitz helps students who misread unfamiliar words, struggle with reading multi-syllable words, skip or add words, read more slowly, and read less accurately than expected. Phonics Blitz students primarily need to break guessing habits, learn how to read multi-syllable words, and understand vowel spellings. Phonics Blitz lessons are often completed in just 10–12 weeks. The materials are recommended for students with mild to moderate decoding weaknesses.

Quick Facts For Rtl, Title I, and ELL Tier 2 decoding intervention Improves fluency and comprehension

Phonics Blitz Lesson Plans PBTG $259 Set includes 2 spiral-bound lesson plan books with 25 lessons each, a set of 8 posters, and the 2 Phonics Blitz Student Workbooks.

Phonics Suite™

Phonics Boost™ Phonics Boost features 80 lessons that address the needs of struggling readers in grades 2–12. Just like Phonics Blitz™ (pp. 4–5), the heart of the instruction is phonemic awareness and phonics, but vocabulary, fluency and comprehension also improve. In grades 2–3, the lessons can be used to address the basic reading skills that students need to succeed with complex text. In grades 4–12, Phonics Boost is used with students with severe decoding weaknesses, who need intensive reading support to overcome their decoding deficits.

Phonics Boost Skills Assessments PSSA $109.00 Phonics Boost Skills Assessments (PBSAs) are used to measure progress of students receiving Phonics Boost™ instruction. They target the specific skills students should have mastered after completing each set of lessons. The PBSAs, combined with the teachers’ ongoing classroom observations of students’ growth, are a powerful tool for evaluating success and planning future instruction. The PBSAs consist of 40 separate pre- and post-assessments that systematically measure mastery of the phonemic awareness and phonics concepts taught in Phonics Boost.

Diagnostic DecoDing surveys Beginning Decoding Survey Advanced Decoding Survey

More than 20 years of scientific, evidence-based reading research makes clear that all good readers must master certain basic skills. Those skills include the ability to decode words accurately – a skill that most struggling readers have difficulty with. This complimentary set of Diagnostic Decoding Surveys includes two informal diagnostic tools designed to quickly pinpoint decoding weaknesses in students of almost any age. The Diagnostic Decoding Surveys enable one-on-one assessment of phonics skills for struggling readers from the middle of first grade through adulthood. The surveys are efficient and easy to administer. For students with decoding weaknesses, the surveys can be used to identify which skills have already been mastered and which are weak. This complimentary packet contains everything you’ll need for initial assessment of an unlimited number of students. The packet also provides an explanation of how the survey results can be used to group students, and it offers guidance on how to plan effective, efficient instruction. www.reallygreatreading.com P.O.
