Sevier School District invites Parents to Preview and Provide Input on Proposed Reading Software for Elementary Students
This year, Sevier School District is proposing to adopt the iReady Reading software program. This reading Software program can be utilized by students as a practice station during the English Language Arts skill-based instruction time. This program is to be used for intervention and support and not be used during core instruction time. Students identified as below-benchmark, or well below- benchmark on Acadience reading testing may benefit from utilizing this program as part of a targeted intervention plan.
i-Ready is a technology-based diagnostic and instruction program for reading. The Diagnostic Assessment (K-12) places students into online instruction at the prerequisite level. The Diagnostic Assessment is adaptive in that it adjusts the difficulty level of the questions presented depending on student response to the previous questions. Upon completion of the assessment, the program links the student to lessons to complete online. Additional assessments are available as part of a suite for supporting standards and science of reading intervention.
When would iReady Diagnostic be administered:
BOY: Beginning of school through mid-October
MOY: December through January
2023-2024 fidelity recommendations:
Based on research from the last 8 years with 30% of America’s K-8 student enrollment, Curriculum Associates recommends that students complete 30-49 minutes per week with pass rates of 70% or better.
How teachers use iReady Data:
Data can be used to inform instruction during ELA skills-based instruction. Teachers are encouraged to provide further instruction using the downloadable lessons that correlate to the skills being reinforced on the computer.
