More than 11 million students, nationwide, use i-Ready to build their reading and math skills for grade-level success. i-Ready Personalized Instruction uses insights from i-Ready Diagnostic, a K-12 adaptive criterion-referenced assessment to create a personalized path of engaging online lessons. Students receive instruction and practice in areas where they need the most support. They feel motivated in the lessons because they are active, supportive, and relevant to their lives. Teachers love the program because they can add lessons, adjust the lesson sequence for their students, and know that their students are receiving explicit and systematic instruction.
i-Ready Personalized Instruction supports all students. That includes those at greatest risk of getting left behind as well as those working above grade level. Students who engage in Personalized Instruction for an average of 45 minutes or more per subject per week for at least 18 weeks showed significantly more growth than students who did not. Teachers get intuitive, personalized reports with actionable data to track student progress. They even get alerts when students need more of their support on a specific skill or standard.
