These are the i-Ready Diagnostic Reading Scale Score Placement Tables for the academic year 2023-2024, covering Kindergarten through 12th grade.
About the i-Ready Placement Tables and Assessment Scores.
The purpose behind the i-Ready Diagnostic assessments is to provide detailed guidance for educational recommendations and student placements from Kindergarten to the 12th grade, based on their performance. A key aspect of these assessments is their ability to identify appropriate grade-level placements for students.
Upon completing an assessment, a student’s scores are calculated considering the difficulty of the questions attempted. The overall score represents the cumulative result from all items a student has answered, while scores for specific domains are derived from items within those domains. These outcomes are then aligned with placement tables to ascertain a student’s academic standing. Diagnostic placements categorize a student’s level relative to their current grade, with specific score ranges defining each grade level. These categories are based on criteria meant to reflect the expected knowledge and skills at each grade level and subject.
Over 100 educators contributed to the development of these standards, employing a method backed by educational research to ensure a uniform approach to assessing student performance.
The i-Ready method of placement provides a consistent evaluation of student progress throughout the school year, aiding in recognizing shifts in performance levels.
