Teacher Review for i-Ready

iReady is great for teacher resources, intervention, and online lessons, however the data piece is very confusing , and the Diagnostic test is should not be used as a teacher or student evaluation piece. The tests are too hard and confusing for little kid

How I Use It
Use it as extra practice for content taught in class (assign extra lessons), and for intervention support for low students. The Diagnostic test is too wordy and hard for 1st grade students. I would not use the Diagnostic as a data piece for teachers or students.
My Take
It is good in all areas except the Diagnostic. The lessons are cute and beneficial but the test is not made for primary students (too wordy, too hard). It has great lesson resources for teachers in areas of Reading, Math, and intervention, as well as center resources.
