I-Ready
The county that I teach has started a program called I-Ready. It's a program students do during intervention time. Does anyone know how well this program work?

My school uses iReady which is great for reading and math. Once the students take the Diagnostic Exam, it will place the students on a level/grade. Then they will have lessons based on the level they were placed in. If they do well then they will move up a level. At our school, students who are one grade level below must take a growth monitor test every 4 weeks and students who are two or more grade levels below must take a growth monitor test every 2 weeks. This allows the teacher to be able to see how the students are improving. One good thing about iReady is you can see how long each student spends on a problem, so it's easy to tell if students are taking their time or just clicking answers.

Greetings Ashley! From my understanding, I-Ready is for math and reading subjects each containing two components. The diagnostic component and the instructional component. My district only purchased the diagnostic component for math. This gave math teachers an idea of each student's level for learning purposes. If your school has the instructional aspect of the program students will receive instruction based on those results. This is a form of differentiated instruction as each student's learning path is individualized for them. This program is very beneficial if you have both components.

We use iReady and I think it is great. It provides great information on each student and a personalized profile for them. Their lessons are created based on their own individual need. The program also does the grouping for you. The groups come with a profile that includes what they can do and what they need additional instruction on. Resources are also provided. It really takes a lot of the guess work out of differentiation.

from the research I've done I understand it is A single K12 adaptive Diagnostic for reading and mathematics that pinpoints student needs down to the sub-skill level, and ongoing progress monitoring shows whether students are on track to achieve end-of-year targets.
