Students will be participating in I-Ready testing this week. I-Ready is a computer based program. The test results will not be entered into gradebook. Rather, they will give us a baseline for our data. This data will help to guide our instruction, going forward. Students do not need to study/prepare for this testing, but please encourage your child to do their best on this assessment. 🙂
