Curriculum Associates' i-Ready® Diagnostic & Instruction was recognized as a District Administration Readers' Choice Top 100 Product for 2014. The awards program informs superintendents and other senior school district leaders about products their colleagues around the country are using to help their districts excel in a variety of areas, including technology, sustainability, and curriculum instruction. Among the 100 winners, i-Ready was nominated by K–12 leaders, and later selected by the magazine's editors, for its positive impact in education and ability to enhance student learning.
From a record 2,400-plus nominations submitted, the winning products received the highest number of nominations and best descriptions from K–12 leaders. The winning products will be featured in the December 2014 issue of District Administration.
“Districts across the nation have experienced improved outcomes as a result of i-Ready's personalized approach to student learning,” said Rob Waldron, CEO of Curriculum Associates. “This recognition is a great honor, especially because administrators and district leaders themselves chose our comprehensive, research-based program as one of the top products that positively impacts the teaching and learning process.”
