United ISD Is Making Good Decisions Based on Good Data

Laredo, TX

Data-Driven Instruction Boosts Student Growth

During the 2022–2023 school year, United ISD implemented i-Ready Diagnostic and i-Ready Personalized Instruction. Right away, they began to see positive changes in teaching and learning. They also witnessed a strong correlation between i-Ready Assessment scores and the 2023 STAAR across Grades 3–5 in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics. 


STAAR is a federally registered trademark owned by the Texas Education Agency and is used pursuant to license.

“We love being able to make good decisions based on good data from i-Ready.” Emma Leza, Associate Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction
