How do I download and import i-Ready Diagnostic Results into Classworks

i-Ready Diagnostic Assessment, created by Curriculum Associates, Inc. has recommended placement levels for students that take the assessment. After each testing administration, the district will upload a newly extracted .csv with either Reading or Mathematics results. Classworks then uses i-Ready Diagnostic assessment data to update the student’s Individualized Learning Progression based on their assessment scores and placement levels in Mathematics and Reading.

By using data from a nationally recognized assessment program, like i-Ready Diagnostics, to individualize learning in Classworks, you can provide relevant instruction for every student, giving them the exact skills they need at the level they need them. Once i-Ready assessment data is uploaded into Classworks, teachers can automatically have their students’ i-Ready data analyzed by Classworks to update students’ individualized instruction.

The integration of i-Ready assessment results into Classworks eliminates the need for an additional assessment for students. The Classworks skills assigned are based on the skills the student is ready to learn according to the i-Ready Overall Scaled Score and Placement Level.
