i-Ready Outshines the Competition on Student Achievement

According to survey results from a national sample of K–5 teachers and instructional coaches, educators who use i-Ready Assessment are more likely to say their assessment helps improve student achievement than those who use other leading assessment programs.

The graph to the right illustrates the percentage of teachers agreeing the statement “helps student achievement” describes their assessment program.

Go Beyond Percentile Ranking

With i-Ready, educators gain a more complete picture of student performance. Like other leading assessments, i-Ready includes national norms that show "percentile ranks." But unlike other leading programs, i-Ready also provides "criterion-referenced scores" (i.e., grade-level placements) so teachers get a clear picture of how students are performing relative to their state Reading and Mathematics standards.

“I definitely would endorse the i-Ready program because it has helped a lot in our school. For children who need a lot of help, it’s there for them—but it’s also there for the ones who need just a chance to grow and who are already high‑performing.”  Lisa L., Third Grade Teacher, Kansas City Public Schools
