The i-Ready tests are dynamically adaptive tests that increase or decrease the difficulty of each question based on the student's answers to previous questions. The test provides reports that allow educators to pinpoint both strong and weak points in a student's performance for further curriculum development.
The i-Ready assessment measures the performance of students in grades K through 12 in reading and math. The i-Ready system automatically creates individualized online and in-class instructions for each student's unique advancement. The program also provides teachers with the tools to implement the instruction into one-on-one teaching and group environments. The official i-Ready website provides free webinars to familiarize instructors and students with the program.
I-Ready has developed many systems to help students prepare for and improve test scores. In addition to personalized instructions given to each student individually, i-Ready has mobile applications to help students develop skills. These include games such as "Door 24 Plus" and "Snarg Splatt," which help develop math skills, and games such as "World's Worst Pet," which helps develop vocabulary and reading comprehension.
I-Ready also provides comprehensive reports on student progress, ranging from entire districts to schools, classrooms and individual students. These reports show both how the student understands the material and how the student is responding to the personalized curriculum.
