Standards Mastery with I-Ready are coming in January for grades 3-6!
i-Ready Standards MasteryBeginning in January grades 3-6 will begin with assigning standards mastery (ism's) quizzes to students. Grade levels will decide on testing dates as a district to match priority standards and cycles.
What is a Standards Mastery?
i-Ready Standards Mastery provides flexible assessments designed to measure specific grade-level standards. Built to map to your scope and sequence, Standards Mastery allows educators to quickly identify when reteaching or remediation is needed as standards are covered across the year. The program’s intuitive reports visualize student performance on recently taught material and guide teachers how to address common misconceptions that may prevent students from making progress in their learning.
IREADY Professional Development on Wednesday, December 9th for classroom teachers. Please look out for more details from your principal.

A great explanation of what is Phonemic Awareness and how it is different than Phonics.
