Bethlehem Central Middle School in the auditorium
Presented by Dave Hurst, Assistant Superintendent for Educational Programs and Laurel Jones, K-5 Administrator for RtI and Instructional Technology

In 2017-18, BC elementary schools and middle school are implementing i-Ready Diagnostic. It is an adaptive online assessment tool for reading and math. i-Ready replaces AIMSweb at the elementary level and the Scholastic Inventory at the middle school. It is designed to be engaging for students and will help teachers quickly and effectively assess the individual needs of each and every student while allowing them to monitor a student’s progress throughout the school year.

You can learn more about i-Ready in this video: www.i-ready.com/tour.

Students in kindergarten through eighth grade will take the i-Ready Diagnostic assessment three times during the school year: in fall, winter, and spring. In grades 2-8, teachers will administer the first i-Ready Diagnostic in mid-September. Students in grades K-1 will take their first i-Ready Diagnostic in early October. The results of these adaptive assessments will provide teachers with a personalized instructional course of action for each student. Individual student reports detailing results from the the fall i-Ready Diagnostic assessments will be provided to parents in late October or early November.

If you are interested in learning more about i-Ready, please join us on October 26.
