iReady Universal Screener

iReady provides information on student needs in reading and math

Universal screening with the iReady assessment gives teachers information about strengths and needs in students’ basic reading and mathematics skills. Gaps in basic skills are the root of many later learning difficulties. Early detection and intervention in these gaps can help students reach their potential.

What Happens After Testing

The iReady assessment provides a first look at areas in which students may need extra support. Teachers may collect more information using diagnostic assessments.
