Unlike many assessments, the goal of the i-Ready diagnostic test is not to get 100% of the questions correct. Rather the goal is to identify students’ skill levels so that they can help teachers focus their instruction in person as well as have the student be correctly placed in their personalized on-line pathway. It is an adaptive test meaning that the questions vary based on each student’s answer to the previous question. Generally students only get about 50% of the questions correct and they may see content they have not yet been taught. We then use the scores to measure growth and students should be about half-way towards their growth goal by the middle of the year diagnostic. We also use the detailed information to inform our small group teaching and give your student exactly what they need to grow.
To view your child's middle of the year benchmark results: Go to https://login.i-ready.com/ . Your student's teacher emailed their usernames and passwords at the beginning of the year. If you need it sent again, please reach out to them. Your child may also have it memorized if you ask them.
Once you are logged in you should see "For Families" in the upper right corner. When you click on that you should see "For Families Report" . Our school code is Y83Z4F. This will give you your child's benchmark results. Remember to make sure that the pop up blocker is turned off. If you have any questions about your student's results, please reach out to their teacher. Your student's teacher can also provide you with a more detailed report that includes their "Next Steps" for instruction and ways to practice these skills at home.
