Curriculum Associates' i‑Ready® recently won a 2017 Tech & Learning Award of Excellence in the Upgraded Products category. The online diagnostic and instruction program, which is used by more than 5 million K–12 students nationwide, was chosen by a panel of Tech & Learning advisors who tested hundreds of entries and crowned this year's winners. i‑Ready also won this award in 2013 and 2015.
