I-Ready End of Year Assessment

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We will be administering the end of year i-Ready Diagnostic exams on Wednesday,  June 3rd at 9:00 am for Math and Wednesday, June 10th at 9:00 am for ELA.  The i-Ready Diagnostic is an adaptive assessment that adjusts its questions to suit your child’s needs. Each item a student receives is based on their answer to the previous question. For example, a series of correct answers will result in slightly harder questions, while a series of incorrect answers will yield slightly easier ones. The purpose of this is to see growth from the beginning of year and determine how to best support their learning when we return in September. 

What can I do to help?

To help prepare your child for the i-Ready Diagnostic, encourage them to:

  • Get a good night’s sleep and eat a full breakfast the day of the assessment
  • Have your child take the test in a quiet place where they can focus
  • Explain the importance of taking their time on each question and not rushing
  • Explain there will be questions they don’t know and to just try their best on those questions
  • Use paper and pencil to show work for all math questions
  • I-Ready will flag any student who rushes through the test so it is important for your child to take their time on every question.
  • For math problems, students must work out each question. Students should not complete any mental math

Thank you for your continued support and for being a partner in your child’s learning!
