NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., May 19, 2016—Curriculum Associates’ i-ReadyDiagnostic & Instructionbeat out eight other finalists to be named the winner of the 2016 Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) CODiE Awards, the premier awards for the software and information industries, in the Best Student Assessment Solution category. An earlier version of this online reading and mathematics program for K–12 won an SIIA CODiE Award in this category in 2013 and was also named a finalist in 2015.

i-Ready helps drive learning outcomes for students across the nation,” said Rob Waldron, CEO of Curriculum Associates. “Being recognized by this industry-leading award now for the third time is a true testament to the power of our program as part of the teaching and learning process.”

For the last 30 years, the SIIA CODiE Awards have recognized product excellence in the areas of content, education, and software. Each award winner was reviewed by a field of industry experts, whose evaluations determined the finalists. SIIA members then reviewed the finalists and their votes were combined with the scores from the industry experts to select this year’s CODiE Awards winners. This year’s education winners—including i-Ready—were announced yesterday during a special webinar hosted by SIIA.

Built to address the rigor of the new standards, i-Ready is proven to help students make real gains. It combines a valid and reliable measure and personalized instruction into a single online product. The adaptive diagnostic for grades K–12 pinpoints student needs down to the sub-skill level and generates a combination of online instruction for grades K–8 and downloadable teacher-led lessons that are unique to each student’s diagnostic result, in addition to providing targeted skill instruction support through mobile apps. These individualized instructional plans are easy to understand, differentiate instruction, and support a blended learning solution.

i-Ready also provides Growth Monitoring which gives educators monthly opportunities to monitor student growth using several data points, making it possible to project end-of-year performance and growth for each student. Growth Monitoring can provide a gauge on the effectiveness of instruction and help teachers keep moving an instructional plan forward, tweak lessons, or change course as needed.

i-Ready is one of the few programs on the market that can provide districts with a single solution and standard measure to monitor growth and progress, in addition to providing personalized instruction throughout a student’s K–12 experience.
