NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In response to educators' need for detailed insight into student understanding of the new standards, Curriculum Associates has recently launched a major enhancement to the i-Ready program. i-Ready Standards Mastery allows schools and districts to get just-in-time information on students' mastery of the standards and provides the instructional tools teachers need to address specific gaps and challenges. Built to cover Common Core standards for Reading, Language, and Mathematics, the new assessments complement the rich data offered by i-Ready Diagnostic by providing detailed information on individual standards as they are covered in the classroom.
"More than ever, schools and districts need to know if what they are doing in the classroom is working—insight into whether or not students are mastering the standards they are teaching every day. Great teachers are the first and most important piece of the puzzle, but teachers also need timely, actionable data to identify and fill those gaps," said Rob Waldron, CEO of Curriculum Associates.
The robust feature set in i-Ready Standards Mastery was designed to prepare students for success on the new state and consortium assessments. Its rigorous assessments include a wide range of technology-enhanced items that effectively prepare students for the new assessment demands. Reports provide a simple but powerful view of students' mastery of standards at the district, school, class, and individual student level as well as item-level analysis. Teachers are also equipped with rich instructional recommendations based on Curriculum Associates' proven Ready and i-Ready instructional programs, providing support for remediation and re-teaching of standards.
