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

    Littleton Public Schools moves to i-Ready Assessment in reading and mathematics for elementary students   In 2015/16, Littleton Public Schools piloted the i-Ready diagnostic assessment in reading and math.  The pilot was used to determine if the addition of i-Ready was the appropriate  school and teacher tool to help determine students instructional level and measure academic growth from year to year.  The pilot was successful and for grades Kindergarten through fifth Littleton Public Schools is  replacing the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment with the i-Ready Diagnostic Assessment by Curriculum Associates.  Littleton Public School teachers and administrators are excited for this new level of information that i-Ready assessments will provide.   This fall, all students in grades Kindergarten through fifth will take a diagnostic assessment in reading and mathematics.   i-Ready is an online program that will help us assess each students 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 Diagnostic is an adaptive test that adjusts each question to suit an individual student’s  performance. Its purpose is not to give a score or grade but instead to determine individual academic needs.  Students will take an assessment  specifically created for his or her learning level.  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.   In addition to providing invaluable data regarding individual academic needs, the i-Ready assessment is specifically designed to measure growth toward the grade level expectations in reading and mathematics.   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.   For parents of students with disabilities, this test will accommodate most students at their instructional level, rather than only on content at their assigned grade level.  This is very different than many other standardized assessments.  We anticipate that for the majority of students with disabilities, this test will be appropriate.  For those students who cannot participate in the i-Ready assessment process, their special education staff will use alternative means to measure their educational progress.      Artículo de NEWSLETTER   Durante el curso 2015/16, las Escuelas Públicas de Littleton Public Schools tuvieron a prueba el programa i-Ready de evaluación de diagnóstico de lectura y matemáticas. Esta prueba se utilizó para determinar si era apropiado añadir i-Ready como herramienta para que la escuela y los maestros puedan medir el progreso académico de su hijo de año en año. La prueba fue un éxito y las Escuelas Públicas de Littleton van a reemplazar la evaluación Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) por i-Ready Diagnostic Assessment de Curriculum Associates.  Los maestros y directivos de las Escuelas Públicas de Littleton están ilusionados por este nuevo nivel de información que i-Ready les proporcionará.  Este otoño todos los alumnos en los grados de Kindergarten a quinto tomarán esta evaluación de diagnóstico en lectura y matemáticas   i-Ready es un programa en línea que nos ayudará a evaluar las necesidades individuales de su hijo y a supervisar su progreso a lo largo del año escolar. El proveedor del programa evaluador, Curriculum Associates, sigue el máximo nivel de estándares en la privacidad de datos de los estudiantes y son signatarios del Student Data Privacy Pledge.   El i-Ready Diagnostic es un test adaptable que ajusta sus preguntas para adaptarse al rendimiento individual del estudiante. Su objetivo no es darle un resultado o una nota, sino determinar sus necesidades académicas individuales. Los estudiantes tomarán un examen específicamente creado para su nivel de aprendizaje. Las evaluaciones i-Ready están estrechamente alineadas con los Estándares Académicos de Colorado y proporcionan a los maestros información detallada en las distintas áreas de lectura, escritura y aritmética.   Además de proporcionar información muy valiosa en relación con las necesidades académicas individuales, la evaluación i-Ready está diseñada específicamente para medir el progreso en relación con las expectativas del nivel del curso en lectura y matemáticas. Los resultados de i-Ready se convierten en otro dato que se revisa junto con la información del trabajo de clase, las observaciones del maestro y otras informaciones con el fin de tomar las mejores decisiones de enseñanza posibles para su hijo.   Para los padres de estudiantes con discapacidad, este test se adaptará al nivel de instrucción de la mayoría de los estudiantes, en lugar de hacerlo solo al contenido del nivel de su grado como ha venido siendo el caso con otros tests estandarizados. Esperamos que este test será apropiado para la mayoría de los estudiantes con discapacidad. Para aquellos estudiantes que no puedan participar en el proceso de evaluación de i-Ready, su personal de educación especial utilizará medidas alternativas para medir su progreso educativo.
