To help accelerate teaching and learning this coming school year, Curriculum Associates has updated its award-winning i-Ready Personalized Instruction and Assessment program with new reports, lessons, accessibility features, and more. These new resources are designed specifically to help educators support grade-level work, monitor progress, and motivate every learner on their path to success.
“i-Ready continues to be a standout in the edtech space, in part, because it is always improving to meet the changing needs of educators and students alike,” said Rob Waldron, CEO of Curriculum Associates. “This coming year, accelerated learning will be a focus for schools nationwide and these new updates will provide educators with the timely resources and data-driven supports needed to help students make continued gains.”
To help inform school- and district-level administrators’ planning, i-Ready now features a new dashboard that displays real-time data of student growth and performance in a single view. Additionally, administrators now have more robust data with expanded 5-Level Placement reporting, a new Overall Reading Comprehension score on Diagnostic reports, and improved export data.
To help students succeed in grade-level reading lessons, a new report for Grades 3–5 provides teachers with deep insight into instructional needs and connects them to high-quality instructional materials and teaching strategies. New Tools for Scaffolding Comprehension have also been added.
For students, i-Ready features new, engaging math lessons for Grades 3–8 that provide strategic scaffolds and are specifically designed to motivate older learners. New vocabulary lessons for Grades 6–8 have also been added to teach vocabulary in the context of reading, provide repeated exposure to words, and prepare students for passages they will see in upcoming reading comprehension lessons. A major expansion of Spanish lessons in mathematics and reading allows for better support of Spanish-speaking learners. In i-Ready Classroom Mathematics, students can now access two eBooks on their Student Bookshelf to address prerequisite skills or accelerate learning.
Closed captioning for Grades K–8 lessons, new audio descriptions, expanded keyboard navigation meeting WCAG 2.0 AA criteria, and screen-reader support for Grades 3–8 reading lessons will make i-Ready more accessible to all students this coming school year and beyond.
