Dynamic range is measured in EV. Cameras with better dynamic range capture a wider number of values from dark to light, usually resulting in more details in shadows and highlights.

Snapsort uses metrics from DXOMark to determine how good a camera's dynamic range is. DXOMark only benchmarks cameras that shoot RAW, which covers most DSLRs and a few high-end digicams.
