Curriculum Associates' i‑Ready was recently named a winner of District Administration's Readers' Choice Top 100 Products of 2016. The awards program informs K–12 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. Winners, including i‑Ready, were chosen based on 1,500-plus nominations from the magazine's readers over the past year.
“More than one million students use i‑Ready every school day,” said Rob Waldron, CEO of Curriculum Associates. “We are seeing the positive results the program is having in districts nationwide, and being nominated for this award by the educators we serve is further validation of its impact.”
Built to address the rigor of the new standards, i‑Ready is proven to help students make real gains. It combines a valid and reliable growth measure and personalized instruction into a single online product. The adaptive diagnostic for Grades K–12 pinpoints student needs down to the sub-skill level and generates a combination of online instruction for Grades K–8 and downloadable teacher-led lessons that are unique to each student's diagnostic result. The program also delivers targeted skill instruction support through mobile apps. The program's individualized instructional plans are easy to understand, helping educators differentiate instruction and support a blended learning solution.
i‑Ready is currently being used this school year by approximately 10 percent of all K–8 students nationwide, serving nearly four million students across all 50 states.
In addition to the Readers' Choice Top 100 Products award, this year i‑Ready won a 2016 Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) CODiE Award and a 2016 Association of American Publishers (AAP) REVERE and Golden Lamp Award, and was named a 2016 MassTLC Innovative Technology of the Year finalist in the EdTech category.
