The present study investigated the relationships between the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) Oral Reading Fluency and the Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA) as related to TerraNova2 Vocabulary and Comprehension scores for second grade students. Archival data gained from 60 participants during the 2004-2005 school year were utilized. The participants were from a school receiving Reading First funding in a northeastern city. Correlation and regression analyses were run on the DIBELS Oral Reading Fluency scores, DRA codes, and TN2 scores to determine the relationships among the three tests. Results found significant correlations and predictors for TN2 performance.
