iReady Mid-Year Diagnostic Data

This month, our students took the iReady mid-year diagnostic for reading and math in grades K-5. I am very proud of the mid-year achievement and growth that our students have shown since the fall diagnostic. You will receive the iReady reports with your child's report card in January. Below you see a high level overview of the growth from the fall (August) to the mid-year (December) diagnostic.


  • Tier 1 represents on or above grade level
  • Tier 2 represents one grade below
  • Tier 3 represents two or more grade levels below


The median percent progress towards Typical Growth for our school for reading is 91% and for math is 72%. Typical Growth is the average annual growth for a student at their grade and baseline placement level. At this point in the year, the expected median growth is around 50% and 100% by the end of the year.
