Award-winning online diagnostic and instruction program identifies root causes behind students' challenges, and gives teachers tools to differentiate instruction
NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Built for the Common Core, i-Ready Diagnostic & Instruction combines a valid and reliable growth measure and individualized instruction in a single online product. To reach one million assessments in less than two years is a testament to the fact that i-Ready delivers a much-needed resource for educators across the country. The 1 millionth assessment was completed by two different students, in two different states at the exact same time on February 26 at 1:55 p.m. EST.
i-Ready is now used in every state as it provides a cost-effective online solution that accurately assesses students and provides detailed, easy-to-use reports to help teachers provide differentiated instruction based on individual student needs.
"With the transition to the Common Core in full swing, and the pressure of ensuring every student performs well on tests, it is essential that educators have the most robust tools to help them recognize when students are not grasping concepts," said Rob Waldron, President and CEO of Curriculum Associates. "Assessments that lead to individualized, tailored instruction help students build their knowledge to progress to more difficult content. Providing up-to-the-minute student performance data in easy-to-use reports that point to instructional needs and resources is a big part of what makes i-Ready Diagnostic so effective."
i-Ready's adaptive diagnostic pinpoints student needs down to the sub-skill level, generates combinations of lessons that are unique to each student's diagnostic result, and provides an individualized learning plan for each student that is easy to understand and implement.
i-Ready also features real-time progress monitoring reports at the class, grade, school, and district levels, enabling educators to identify and address individual and group needs in a simple, streamlined way.
The complete i-Readyfamily of products offers a complete blended learning solution that includes more than 600 fully automated online lessons, plus hundreds of downloadable Tools for Instruction PDFs.
