iReady Diagnostic Testing
Posted on 09/09/2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We are excited to share that FMMA is implementing a Reading and Math program called i-Ready. Below, you will find information about the program and how we will be using it in the classroom.

What is i-Ready?

i-Ready is an online program that will help us determine your child’s strengths and areas for growth, personalize their learning, and monitor their progress throughout the school year. i-Ready allows us to meet your child where they are and provides us with data to inform instruction.

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 not to give your child a score or grade but to determine how to best support their learning.

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.
  • Try their best on each question and try not to rush.
  • Try not to worry about questions to which they do not know the answers—remind them that it is expected that they will only get about half of the questions correct.
  • Be respectful of other students who take longer to finish.

 

If your student is on Lee Home Connect, encourage students to:

  • Find a quiet place to test
  • Try their best on each question and try not to rush.
  • Try not to worry about questions to which they do not know the answers – remind them that it is expected that they will only get about half of the questions correct.
  • Please do not help your student in taking the diagnostic.

 

What happens next?

The i-Ready Diagnostic will provide results that help me identify your child’s strengths and determine next steps for instruction. I look forward to sharing these results with you throughout the year and providing a learning experience that will engage your child while teaching important skills and concepts.

If you have any questions about i-Ready, please do not hesitate to contact the school. You can also learn more about i-Ready by visiting i-ReadyCentral.com/FamilyCenter. Additionally, here is a "Fridge Tips" handout that you can review at your leisure: iReady Fridge Tips.pdf

As always, thank you for your continued support and for being a partner in your child’s learning! It is much appreciated.
