Chances are, in a classroom of 25 students, there are 25 learning levels and styles that go along with them. While “differentiating instruction” is a term claimed by any number of programs, truly delivering on its promise leaves teachers asking, “Where do I begin?”
As a company founded by educators, we’ve always been driven by one simple truth: programs must rise to the challenge of offering equitable access to high‑quality instruction. We believe that one of the first steps is starting with data that provides visibility into the learning—data that reaches beyond what teachers may observe that’s not just rich but razor-sharp in its insight and delivered in user-friendly formats so all educators can benefit from it at a glance.
We believe that to utilize data to its best advantage, it must directly correlate to targeted instruction teachers can trust, so individuals, small groups, and whole classes of learners get exactly the materials they need, and teachers don’t lose valuable time seeking them out.
Years of research, classroom experience, and educator partnerships have led us to create assessment tools that “see” what the human eye cannot. This insight complements—with surgical precision—what educators know about their students and immediately allows them to connect to multiple, targeted instructional materials built by the same company. Having both reading and mathematics materials available in the same best‑in‑class program saves time and energy for both educators and students.
Used in combination or as separate products, the Ready suite of mathematics and reading programs, i-Ready Assessment and Personalized Instruction and the remarkably useful teacher resources on the Teacher Toolbox give teachers a complete system of programs that were fundamentally designed to work together to enhance their instruction and lead to student growth.
For schools around the country, the Ready and i‑Ready programs are proving to deliver on the promise of differentiated instruction in reading and mathematics classrooms, helping students of every level, from every background, grow and achieve more.
i-Ready helps teachers differentiate instruction and accelerate student growth.
“i-Ready has made differentiating instruction so much easier for me. From the minute [students] take that test, it groups them into profiles; I can see exactly what they need and work with that group, and then reassess.”
—Teacher, Grade K
“The Teacher Toolbox has been a fantastic resource for our teachers so that they can see lessons and resources based on students’ needs at different grade levels and quickly access them as a tool for differentiation.”
—District Administrator, Grades K–8
“I love that i-Ready challenges students at their level and gives teachers and parents specific feedback as to the exact standards/skills individual students need to work on for mastery of grade-level expectations.”
—Teacher, Grades 3–5
