Online Instruction

Monitoring i-Ready Online Instruction is an important step in responding to your students’ needs. Without this step you students will not be getting the most out of their iReady experience. It is best practice to set aside planning time once a week to review your students’ Online Instruction data and familiarize yourself with how to monitor Online Instruction.

Time on Task

This is the number that Mrs. Nichols is looking at when we run Iready reports. This number needs to be at 45 minutes for each student. Click "Monitor Online Instruction" to see each students online overview. You want to pay close attention to yellow caution and red Xs.

Click on the child's name that has the caution sign or red x to see what issues they are having so that you can remediate BEFORE turning on their domains.

Make note of what domain they have failed and what grade level that skill falls under. This is important when locating materials within iReady to help remediate this skill.

Below is a form that can help you keep track of this each week.
