iReady (K-5th Grades): Many students have already been taking the i-Ready Diagnostic assessments. Please remember that it is very important to let students take the assessments themselves without parents answering questions in order to get an authentic diagnostic score. Please also know that this is only one measure that teachers use to assess where students are and they will make adjustments in instruction as they get to know their students and their needs better.
