Albuquerque Public Schools is offering the i-Ready program an an option for Grades 6 - 8 in the 2016-2017 school year. This program offers an adaptive diagnostic assessment and may be used as a placement tool for Math and Reading. This will potentially be required for any school engaged in a NMPED PSB Triannual visit cycle, at Associate Superintendent direction and in collaboration with the principal.
Alternative schedule schools: July 21 - August 19, 2016
November 28 - December 16, 2016
April 24 - May 19, 2017
The Teacher and Student rosters will be synced nightly from Synergy. This should take care of any new students and any school transfers. The School Admin accounts are being added manually. If you need school wide access to the i-Ready system, please have your principal email firstname.lastname@example.org to have you added.
These instructions are for School Admins. You will need to be logged in to i-ready.com to see the info.
The system will keep track of how long it takes for a student to answer each question. If the student is not spending enough time on the questions, the system will put a rush notice on their account. If the teacher feels that the data is not accurate because the student rushed through the diagnostic, they can have that student retake the assessment.
Retake a Diagnostic
If a student rushed through the diagnostic and you want them to retake the assessment, please follow the instructions to "Add a Diagnostic". The data from the first diagnostic that they rushed through will still be there, however the reports will pull the data from the most recent diagnostic. If a student has already moved on to instruction in i-Ready and you add a diagnostic, they will need to complete the new diagnostic before the system will allow them to move on to additional instruction. The instructions below were taken directly from the i-Ready training guides.
You may view the training webinar that i-Ready created for APS for the 2016-2017 school year. It is a 90 minute webinar that covers administration and reporting of the diagnostic assessment.
