iReady Diagnostic and iReady Instruction

Built for the Common Core, i-Ready combines a valid and reliable growth measure and individualized instruction in a single online product.

This single platform offers an online, adaptive assessment.  It is built for the Common Core State Standards, identifies where students are struggling relative to the standards, measures growth over time, and supports data-driven differentiated instruction. It provides teachers and administrators with detailed reports to help understand what each student can do and the next steps to inform instruction.

The i-Ready Diagnostic is:

  • Nationally norm referenced

  • Helps to identify gaps and strengths above and below grade level

  • Offers next steps for instruction around the areas to develop with Teacher led PDFs

  • Supports grades 2-8 standards

  • Can be used to support high school as a universal screener for incoming 9th graders and for targeted intervention classes

  • Provides growth monitoring data points with global outcome measures

  • Is rated nationally through National Council of Intensive Interventions (NCII)

    • Will meet criteria for SLD with progress monitoring

      • Offers progress monitoring assessments that are shorter

      • 15-20 minute versions of the adaptive diagnostic assessment
