The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has recently selected Curriculum Associates’ i-Ready Diagnostic for reading and math as an approved Assessment for Use with Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) and as an approved Supplemental Assessment with Corresponding Growth Models for grades K–12. As a result of this approval, districts and BOCES throughout New York can use the program as part of teachers’ and principals’ annual performance appraisals per the state’s teacher evaluation requirements. 

The complete list of approved student assessments, including i-Ready Diagnostic for reading and math for grades K–12, is available on the NYSED website at: http://usny.nysed.gov/rttt/teachers-leaders/assessments/approved-list-3012-d.html. All approved assessments underwent a strict and thorough review process, and were deemed to demonstrate an exemplary standard of rigor, validity, and reliability, as well as the ability to measure one year’s expected growth for individual students and provide differentiated student-level results.
