This August, i-Ready® Diagnostic & Instruction will include monthly Progress Monitoring assessments for grades K–8 and will expand diagnostic assessments through grade 12.

New Features

The new high school diagnostic items will cover both reading and mathematics. The new assessment items feature extensive use of compare and contrast, as well as multimedia items to reflect the increased rigor of the Common Core standards at the high school level. District and administrator reports generated within i-Ready will now include results through grade 12.

The new Progress Monitoring assessment tool for grades K–8 provides a global outcome measure for both reading and mathematics and will allow educators to intervene in student instruction without having to wait for the next diagnostic assessment. Each “mini-diagnostic” is approximately 15 minutes in length and can be administered monthly or more frequently as needed. The Progress Monitoring assessment measures growth on the same scale as the Diagnostic which means educators can see whether the student is on track to meet end-of-year expectations.

Measured Progress Awarded Contract for Oklahoma Assessments

DOVER, N.H.—October 9, 2017—The Oklahoma State Department of Education (SDE) has awarded Measured Progress a potential six-year contract for its Oklahoma School Testing Program (OSTP). The new contract provides yearly assessments based on Oklahoma Academic Standards for grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and mathematics, and for science in grades 5 and 8. This contract continues the strong working relationship between the Oklahoma SDE and Measured Progress, which began in 2013 with the award for the English language arts and mathematics portions of the former Oklahoma College and Career Readiness Assessment program (replaced by OSTP). In 2014 and 2015, the state again chose Measured Progress to support two more programs in the OSTP. Measured Progress worked on the Oklahoma Core Curriculum tests in science, geography, and social studies as well as the high-school End-of-Instruction (EOI) tests.
