iReady Notes

  • Be sure to have your students complete the iReady graph your progress page after they finish the assessment. Students started this after the 1st diagnostic.
  • Admin will be coming by your classrooms during the week of December 17th to give positive feedback to students that showed tremendous amounts of growth after the second diagnostic.
  • We will email you the day prior to let you know when we are coming to your room.
  • When we come, we will ask to see a specific student in the hall and to have them bring their "iReady tracking sheet". If the students keep it, then the student can grab it. If you keep these sheets please have them on your desk so we can grab it.
  • We want to praise the students making great progress and not be disruptive to your class.
