The Davidson County School System and NDMS has been implementing a program called i-Ready Diagnostic & Instruction for the past several school years. The program provides students with an innovative diagnostic assessment and engaging instruction. The focus of this online program is reading and math. i-Ready Diagnostic & Instruction helps teachers to effectively assess their students and then provide individualized instruction based on each student’s unique needs.
i-Ready Diagnostic & Instruction assesses and teaches the following skill areas:
Reading: Phonological Awareness, Phonics, High-Frequency Words, Vocabulary, Comprehension
Math: Numbers and Operations, Algebra and Algebraic Thinking, Measurement and Data, Geometry
Students should spend a minimum of 45 minutes a week per subject area to receive the full benefits of the program. Students are given approximately 45 minutes per week to work on each subject during the IME time; however, sometimes students may need to complete lessons at home. In addition, some teachers assign additional assignments throughout the week. Please encourage your child to put forth 100% effort in class and at home when utilizing i-Ready. Your support of this program is greatly appreciated.
