i‑Ready online lessons provide students with lessons based on their individual skill level and needs, so your child can learn at a pace that is just right for them. These lessons are fun and interactive to keep your child engaged as they learn. Your student's teacher can also assign lessons that are related to skills they are covering in their teaching and help reinforce what students are learning in class.
As a reminder, your child has most likely already taken the i‑Ready Diagnostic at school. The results of this adaptive assessment personalize your child’s online learning and helps their teacher(s) determine strengths and areas for growth. Ultimately, the assessment helps teachers meet your child exactly where they are and increase learning gains. For more information, visit the i-Ready Family Center.
In order to access i-Ready, your student’s school or district must have licenses for the program. i-Ready licenses can only be provided at the school and district level—it is not possible to license individual students to use i-Ready at this time.
Your student must be licensed through their school or district in order to use i-Ready Personalized Instruction. If your child’s teacher or school administrator has advised what your child should work on, consult and follow this guidance to keep your child's learning aligned with the current curriculum.

Click here to access step-by-step instructions along with visuals of your child’s My Progress screen.
MAKE A PLAN together with your child on how to spend their time at home and when they will work on their learning activities. It can be helpful to put the plan in writing and post it somewhere visible. As you make the plan, follow any guidance you received from your child’s teacher on what they should work on.
SHARE the experience with your child. Both of you can become familiar with the different parts of the student dashboard, and you can learn with your child as they complete a lesson.
ENCOURAGE your child to take each lesson and quiz question seriously. Emphasize “thinking before clicking,” because just clicking through will not be a productive use of their time nor reflect what your child actually knows. Remind your child to read passages in their entirety, use paper and pencil to solve math problems, and use the tools that appear at the bottom of the screen in some lessons.
TRACK AND DISCUSS PROGRESS. Regularly review progress with your student using the My Progress page. Note that your child should aim for 45 minutes of i‑Ready Personalized Instruction per subject per week and maintain a range of 30–49 minutes of Personalized Instruction while passing at least 70 percent of lessons. Your child’s school may have varying guidance. As you discuss progress with your child, consider asking:
You can use these fun trackers as you and your child discuss and keep track of progress.
CELEBRATE your child’s progress. Celebrating milestones such as passing a lesson or reaching a specific goal can help keep your child motivated. You can share celebrations with the rest of the family and even decide on a fun activity as a reward.
MIX UP activities. As you plan how your child will spend their learning time, ensure there is variety in the activities they work on beyond the time they spend on online learning. For example, younger children can work on art projects (they can even use these fun coloring pages of i‑Ready characters) and older children can immerse themselves in a book of their choice.
