The i-Ready Diagnostic is an adaptive assessment that adjusts its questions to suit your child’s needs. Each item a student sees is individualized based on their answer to the previous question. For example, a series of correct answers will result in slightly harder questions, while a series of incorrect answers will yield slightly easier questions. The purpose of this is not to give your child a score or grade, but instead to determine how best to support your child’s learning.
i-Ready is an online program for reading and/or mathematics that will help your child’s teacher(s) determine your child’s needs, personalize their learning, and monitor progress throughout the school year. i-Ready allows your teacher(s) to meet your child exactly where they are and provides data to increase your child’s learning gains. i-Ready consists of two parts: Diagnostic and Instruction.
i-Ready Instruction provides students with lessons based on their individual skill level and needs, so your child can learn at a pace that is just right for them. These lessons are fun and interactive to keep your child engaged as they learn.
At Eagle, we believe that students benefit when they are exposed to real-world learning experiences. As members of a MicroSociety, students create and operate businesses, produce goods, manage inventory, sell products to other students and the general public, predict profits and losses, predict market trends, and adjust production to meet customer demand. Eagle Charter School uses traditional academic methods in concert with the MicroSociety Program to involve students in their education.
Students become business managers, workers, consumers, bankers, legislators, judges, police officers, journalists, and more. In doing so, students create and take part in every aspect of a model society, including learning to handle troublesome aspects of their society, economic changes due to market success and failure, and crime/punishment, preparing students for life in the 'real world.
Studies of existing MicroSociety schools conducted over the past 13 years show increases in attendance and academic success, as well as decreases in bullying, apathy, and anti-social behavior.
