Diagnostic or Assessment
Is i-Ready an assessment or a diagnostic? The answer is both. We use the words interchangeably because it is our local assessment, which happens to be a diagnostic. Another view is that the assessment provides a diagnosis of a student's current levels, which helps to inform future instruction. Our diagnostic is adaptive, which means that about 50% of the questions should be harder or potentially brand new information. This allows for more accurately pinpointing student needs down to the sub-skill level, which is aligned with our personalized model. If the test were finite, the results would be less individualized.
