Starting in 2017-2018, The American School of Las Palmas will incorporate i-Ready in the classroom and at home. Students in K-8 will take a diagnostic test in both math and English at the beginning and end of the school year. The results of these tests will then aid teachers in meeting the individual needs of students and will thus help students reach their personal goals and objectives for the school year. Even though it is just in English and math, the information will be shared by all departments and will guide instructional strategies in daily lessons. Furthermore, i-Ready will promote independent learning which is an important part of the ASLP mission statement.
What is i-Ready?
i-Ready is an interactive online learning environment designed to asses students and provide individualized instruction based on each one’s unique needs. The exciting format and engaging content, as well as the Study Buddies and other interesting contemporary characters draw students in right away.
The i-Ready experience builds students´ investment in their learning by giving them real-time feedback on their progress in each skill. As they complete each assignment successfully, they earn credits that they can use to play games. i-Ready also provides opportunities to learn both at school and at home.
How does i-Ready work with what my child is learning in the classroom?
i-Ready is designed to complement what is being taught in the classroom. The lessons are assigned based on how your child performed in the Diagnostic test, which he/she must complete before starting on the lessons. The lessons are presented in three parts: tutorial, guided practice, and graded activity. Your child will get relevant instruction with supportive feedback as he/she progresses through the lessons.
