i-Ready Diagnostic

Posted by Wedyan on June 7, 2020 in Blogs |

This week, you will need to take the i-Ready Diagnostic. This will help individualize your instruction in reading. It will also show you how much you have grown as a reader.

Take your time!

Don’t try to complete the entire test in one day. Maybe, do 30 minutes on one day and another 30 minutes on another day until the test is complete.

Also, make sure you find a quiet place to complete this alone.

Good Luck
