i-Ready Reading (K-8)
i-Ready was brought into the district as a tool to help us better understand and target what our students know and need to learn through the use of diagnostic assessments and learning tools. The i-Ready platform allows us to gain a district level understanding of the trends, needs, success and gaps across the district, schools, grades, classes and individual students. In grades K-8 we focus on the i-Ready Assessment and i-Ready Learning.

i-Ready Assessment (Diagnostic)
Three times throughout the year- students in grades K-8 are assessed through the i-Ready Diagnostic. The diagnostic allows us to see a complete picture of the students' performance and growth through this adaptive assessment. Once complete, a report is generated giving insight into the students level of mastery of grade level standards. A student is given an overall scale score, percentile and grade level mastery as well as a breakdown of how they performed on the following literacy components: phonemic awareness, phonics, high frequency words, vocabulary, comprehension literature and comprehension non fiction.
