i-Ready Diagnostic (grades K-8) is available three times a year for ASD families.
i-Ready Diagnostic is an adaptive assessment designed to provide teachers with actionable insight into student needs. The Diagnostic offers a complete picture of student performance and growth, eliminating the need for multiple, redundant tests. Diagnostic results also set a personalized learning path for each student, ensuring they’re working on instruction that matches their unique learning needs. You can also use i-Ready as supplemental practice in reading and math. Just log back in and have your student do the practice lessons that it guides you through. These lessons are tailored specifically to your student utilizing the information collected by the diagnostic.
You can access i-Ready through the ASD site by logging on to CLEVER and finding the i-Ready icon.
Elementary students will be able to log on with the username, "firstname.lastname" and a password of "firstname". The password for middle school students may be their state ID number. If you need assistance, your advisor is glad to help.

Purpose of the AK STAR: “First, we want to be able to inform families, educators, policy makers, the community, and businesses how our schools and districts are performing. Second, after we have determined how our schools are performing, we want to identify schools in the most need of school improvement efforts. Third, we want to ensure there is equity in education for students across Alaska. Our mission is to provide an excellent education to every student every day.”
