Curriculum Associates’ i-Ready Diagnostic has been approved by the New York State Education Department as a student growth measure and helps fulfill a new state law that requires student growth to be a factor in evaluating teachers and principals.

i-Ready Diagnostic is on the List of Approved Student Assessments for Use by School Districts and BOCES in Teacher and Principal Evaluations for K–8 English Language Arts and Mathematics. A statewide BOCES contract makes a portion of local districts’ purchases of i-Ready Diagnostic eligible for state aid reimbursement.

As a result of increasing demand for data-driven assessments in schools, New York State recently passed the above-mentioned law. To be approved by the New York State Education Department, Curriculum Associates had to follow a strict and thorough process, including the submission of a 1,200-page proposal, demonstrating an exemplary standard of validity and reliability, as well as the ability to support local districts’ implementation of the product.

i-Ready Diagnostic Reading and Math Assessment is a research-based combination of an adaptive diagnostic assessment and instant detailed reporting tool. Diagnostic results are automatically translated into reports that are immediately available to teachers and administrators by grade level and domain at the district, school, grade, class, and student level. Student profile reports are immediately available to the teacher to inform and target instruction.

i-Ready Diagnostic is aligned to the domains and strands of the Common Core State Standards. i-Ready Instruction modules are available to complement the Diagnostic assessments. The complete i-Ready Diagnostic & Instruction program for reading or math (1-year subscription) is $27.00 per student. The diagnostic module (1-year subscription) can be purchased separately for $6.00 per student. The diagnostic module targets grades K–8. The instruction component addresses the needs of students in grades K–6.
