The program starts with the First Diagnostic. The purpose is to establish your child’s current level of Math or Reading understanding so that your child’s personalized learning is set up accurately.
IT IS ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL FOR THE PARENTS TO ENSURE THAT THE CHILD TAKES THE DIAGNOSTIC INDEPENDENTLY AND NO HELP IS PROVIDED
- The purpose of this diagnostic is to identify the child’s academic skill levels, learning gaps and strengths, based on which the personalized learning path is designed.
- The accuracy of the data produced by the diagnostic is of paramount importance.
- If the data in the diagnostic is misconstrued due to intervention or help by a parent or caregiver, the learning will be inaccurate resulting in too easy or too difficult lessons.
- Therefore it cannot be emphasized enough that the integrity of the diagnostic has to be maintained in order to get the best customized learning path.
- Once a diagnostic is completed we will not be able to reset the same diagnostic again. A new license will need to be purchased in order to start a new ‘First Diagnostic’.
What Parents Must-Do:
Log on to i-Ready to orient yourself with the program.
Explain the diagnostic experience and important test procedures to your child by showing the Diagnostic introduction presentations and/or videos sent to you by LearnEasy247 Support Team.
Check speakers/headphones of the device your child will be using for the i-Ready diagnostic and instruction.
Encourage your child to try his/her best and make the best guess if a question seems too difficult. It is better for a student to guess and move on than to try for too long to get a question right. It is not a timed test but ideally a student should not spend more than 40-60 seconds on a question.
Motivate your child to do his/her best on the Diagnostic but do not give answers during the assessment. Your child has the option to listen to instruction by clicking on the speaker icon.
Monitor your child while the diagnostic is being taken without giving or hinting at the answers. This is to ensure the seamlessly integrated learning path that follows the diagnostic is as accurate and customized to your child’s needs as possible. Explaining a question by rewording it is acceptable but do not choose or hint at the answer for your child.
