  • LPS moves to i-Ready Assessment in reading and mathematics for elementary students

    This fall, all students in grades Kindergarten through fifth will take the i-Ready diagnostic assessment in reading and mathematics. i-Ready is an online program that will help assess each student’s individual needs and monitor their progress throughout the school year. The assessment provider, Curriculum Associates, follows the highest level of student data privacy standards and are signators of the Student Data Privacy Pledge. The i-Ready assessments are closely aligned to the Colorado Academic Standards and provide teachers detailed information in the various domains of literacy and numeracy. The i-Ready results will become another piece of data that is reviewed along with classroom work, teacher observations and other achievement information in order to make the best instructional decisions possible for each student. Littleton Public Schools teachers and administrators are excited for this new level of information that the i-Ready assessments will provide. More information about i-Ready
