Ascension School uses a program called i-Ready with our kindergarten through eighth graders. This system measures our students’ typical and stretch growth in math and reading. The goal of i-Ready is to be utilized as a benchmark testing system. This system follows our students’ individualized growth and helps to support learning. It uses fun activities and games on a tablet or chromebook to measure where the student's level sits. As the student grows and learns the program grows with them.
Ascension teachers use this growth model in their classwork and will test the students in the winter and spring, so they are on the right path. i-Ready creates a more personal and immersive role into our student's education and takes the focus away from general standardized tests.
