Students with DisabilitiesCurriculum Associates developed all items in i-Ready to be as accessible as possible for all students. In most cases, students who require accommodations will not require additional help during administration. The thoughtful planning that went into the general design of the assessment ensures that a large percentage of students requiring accommodations will have the necessary adjustments without compromising the interpretation or purpose of the test. i-Ready works with third-party (external) assistive technologies, such as screen readers and screen magnifiers.

|i-Ready Growth Monitoring (formerly known as Progress Monitoring) is a brief, computer-delivered, adaptive assessment in mathematics for students in grades 1 through 8. Growth Monitoring is part of the i-Ready Diagnostic & Instruction suite and is designed to be used jointly with i-Ready Diagnostic to allow for progress monitoring throughout the year to determine whether students are on track for appropriate growth. Growth monitoring is a periodic assessment that may be administered as frequently as every week in which the i-Ready Diagnostic assessment is not administered.||
Growth Monitoring takes approximately 15 minutes and may be conducted with all students or with specific groups of students who have been identified as at risk of academic failure. i-Ready’s sophisticated adaptive algorithm automatically selects from thousands of multiple-choice and technology-enhanced items to get to the core of each student's strengths and challenges, regardless of the grade level at which he or she is performing. The depth of the item bank enables the assessment to truly pinpoint each student’s ability and ensures the accuracy of results.
The system automatically analyzes and scores student responses. Available as soon as a student completes the assessment, i-Ready’s intuitive Growth Monitoring reports—available at the student and class levels—focus solely on how students are tracking toward their end-of-year growth.Reports show whether students are on track for their target growth by projecting where each student’s ability level will likely be at the end of the school year and comparing the projected growth-to-growth targets. For students performing below grade level, Growth Monitoring can be used as a tool for Response to Intervention (RTI) programs.
