Standards Mastery

Designed to Address the Rigor of TEKS and STAAR Redesign

i-Ready Standards Mastery in Texas

i-Ready Standards Mastery are flexible assessments designed to measure specific grade-level TEKS for Mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA) and Reading. Built to map to your scope and sequence, Standards Mastery assessments:

  • Quickly identify when reteaching is needed as standards are covered across the year
  • Pinpoint instructional priorities with detailed, skill-level data and intuitive item analysis

Technology-Enhanced Item Types

Many types of technology-enhanced items (TEIs) are included in i-Ready Standards Mastery. These items can provide a deeper understanding of student mastery of concepts, increase engagement, and are closely aligned to the STAAR Redesign’s new TEIs.
