dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to examine the effect of attendance on oral reading fluency of first grade students as assessed on the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Learning Skills (DIBELS). A correlational study design was used. The participants of this study were enrolled in first grade at Nantucket Elementary School in Anne Arundel County for the 2010-2011 school year. Data regarding the students‟ scores on the DIBLES test and data regarding the students‟ absenteeism rates were collected and analyzed. The analysis showed no significant relationship between oral reading fluency rate as assessed on the DIBELS test and student attendance rates. Recommendations for future research include a replication of the study with a more diverse and larger student population as well as including student DIBELS scores on a continuum from the first administration in January through the last administration in the spring including student.en_US
