iReady

iReady logoi-Ready is an online program that will help us determine your child’s strengths and areas for growth, personalize their
learning, and monitor their progress throughout the school year. i-Ready allows us to meet your child where they are
and provides us with data to inform instruction.

The i-Ready Diagnostic is an adaptive assessment that adjusts its questions to suit your child’s needs. Each item a
student receives is based on their answer to the previous question. For example, a series of correct answers will result in
slightly harder questions, while a series of incorrect answers will yield slightly easier ones. The purpose of this is not to
give your child a score or grade but to determine how to best support their learning.

i-Ready Instruction provides students with lessons based on their individual strengths and areas for growth. These
lessons are interactive and provide strategic supports to keep your child engaged as they learn.
 
To help prepare your child for the i-Ready Diagnostic, encourage them to:
  • Get a good night’s sleep and eat a full breakfast the day of the assessment.
  • Try their best on each question and try not to rush.
  • Try not to worry about questions they do not know—remind them that it is expected they will get only about
    half of the questions correct.
  • Be respectful of other students who take longer to finish.
  • Use paper and pencil to show work for math questions.
 
To support your child’s learning in Online Instruction, you can:
  • Discuss your child’s progress on their i-Ready lessons.
  • Celebrate your child’s learning and growth.
  • Encourage them to use i-Ready at home.
  • They will need access to a computer, internet, and their login information. 
 
Helpful Hints for Virtual Learning Environment:
  • Have your child mute their microphone.
  • Have your child keep their camera screen open at all times.
  • Encourage your child to wear headphones (if accessible) to avoid distractions and stay focused.
  • You can sit next to your child to ensure they are taking their time and answering every question, but we ask that you do not help your child with any questions (so that we can get accurate information/data for each student).
  • The teacher will be monitoring your child during the assessment to provide any tech support and to ensure that they are taking their time on the assessment.
