    Do I need to print test tickets or rosters for students?

    With single sign on students will autmatcially log in to i-Ready when they sign into to their k12 Google account. You will not need to inform students of their i-Ready username and password beforehand. However, it is advisable to review your class roster BEFORE testing to make sure all your students are accounted for.
     
    To confirm accuracy of rosters:
    • Select Rosters from the top navigation
    • Select your Class or Report Group from the Class/Report Group dropdown
    • Select the + icon to view all students in your roster  

    When are i-Ready Diagnostic windows?

    Shoreline has set assessment windows during the school year and has made adjustment for the seocndary 3x3 scheudle. Students have 21 days from the day they start to complete the Diagnostic before it expires.  Ideally, all students will take the diagnostic within the district-assigned diagnostic window. However, if a student enrolls in your class after the close of the diagnostic window you may still have them take the diagnostic.

    How much time should students need to take the i-Ready Diagnostic?

    The Diagnostic takes about 45-60 minutes per subject (Math and Reading for grades 1-5, Math only for grades 6-12). The test is untimed. Students have 21 days from the day they start the test to complete the Diagnostic before it expires.

    i-Ready recommends you allow two 30-45 minute class periods per subject for students to take the Diagnostic. For younger students or special education students, you may want to provide shorter test sessions. Student do not need to finish the test in one sitting. 

    Note that the fall administration of the Diagnostic may take longer due to the need for the test to determine the student's actual performance level.
