iReady Benchmarks Begin Wednesday!
February 1 will begin the start of our iReady Benchmark 2 assessment; this will be our second of three benchmark opportunities we have throughout this year. We use this assessment as a tool to support our intervention block, support reteaching, ensure their daily iReady lessons are at an accessible level, and practice testing protocols and strategies for grades 3-5 that will participate in state testing later this year.
You can support their participation by reminding your child to:
- Take their time and do not rush
- Read each question and answer choice carefully
- For math, show their work using scratch paper
- For reading, read and reread each passage
- Check their work!
- Try their best!
