Hear From Other Catholic School Educators

"I have been very pleased with the Curriculum Associates team since I began implementing i-Ready across our 21 diocesan schools in January of 2021. It was a lot of work to get everyone up and running mid year but the support I received form every team member made it possible. Our schools initially began with i-Ready Math Diagnostic and Instruction but now we are using the i-Ready Reading Diagnostic and Instruction program as well. The data we are receiving in real time is invaluable to our teachers and administrators in determining students' areas of strength as well as weaknesses. The personalized instructional program provides another level of differentiated instruction, remediation or enrichment for the individual learner. To date, our educators in Grades K–8 are very pleased with the program."

—Terri McGraw, Consultant for Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment, Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany, NY

"After five years of continuous implementation, the collaboration and unity of our schools has blossomed under the use of i-Ready. Throughout spring 2020, while our schools shifted to online learning platforms, i-Ready helped us sustain our goals, and upon our return to in-person learning in fall 2020, helped our teachers quickly measure and respond to what the data was saying about student needs.

From exceptional customer service to dynamic professional development opportunities, Curriculum Associates has become an important partner in helping the Diocese of Rochester Catholic Schools fulfill our mission."

—J. Tauzel, Superintendent of Schools, Diocese of Rochester, NY

"i-Ready has been an exceptional tool for our schools and teachers to engage while serving the educational needs of our students. i-Ready enables informed, valid, and reliable data regarding student progress in English language arts and mathematics.

The Curriculum Associates team works with us like colleagues, providing assistance and guidance as well as regularly reporting about assessment outcomes. The level of service that we receive is second to none."

—William Crist, Superintendent of Schools, Diocese of Syracuse, NY
