This fall, scholars in grades 1-8 will be taking the iReady test at home during their asynchronous learning time. They will explain how to log-in, what to expect, and the importance of not getting help when answering questions. They will also help virtually monitor scholars to make sure they aren’t going too fast or too slow and providing breaks if necessary.
What do families need to know?
1. Scholars need to do this with no help
2. Scholars are expected to get some questions wrong- this is how we know what they can do by themselves and what they need to practice.
3. No grades are given, but this informs teachers for best ways to support your child’s learning
4. Results help determine which online lessons they are given.
