  • The Curriculum Associates Research team analyzed data from approximately one million K–8 students who took the iReady Diagnostic in the 2017–2018 school year.
  • In both Reading and Mathematics, students who used iReady Instruction experienced substantial learning gains compared to students who did not use the program.
  • i-Ready Instruction meets the criteria for the United States Department of Education as an evidence-based program. This means that iReady may be eligible for School Improvement Funds and other federal and state grant programs.
