Parent Guides to i-Ready Student Score Reports for the 2020-2021 School Year

August 2021

 

Dear Parent(s) or guardian(s):

 

Shortly before school ended for the year, your child took part in the 2020-21 Local Assessment administration that was administered for grades 3 - 8, which is the i-Ready Diagnostic assessments for Reading and Mathematics. These tests are based on California’s challenging academic standards, which include the ability to think critically and solve problems—the very skills needed to succeed in college and a 21st-century career. These skills take time and effort to gain proficiency, but our students will need them to succeed in the long run.

 

In our school district, we see a student’s test results as one measure of his or her academic progress. They will not be used to determine whether a student moves to the next grade. Schools can use the results to identify specific areas in which to focus more attention in the next school year, while teachers can use the results to identify and address individual student needs. We recommend that parents and/or guardians discuss the test results with their child’s teacher.

 

The student test scores enclosed with this letter show your child’s achievement in reading and mathematics. Please take a few moments to review it. You’ll notice that along with an overall score for each subject, there is also information about how your child performed in different skill areas associated with reading and mathematics. These scores are also accessible in the Aeries Parent Portal.

 

These results are also being provided to your child’s school, where they can be used to help set learning goals for students this year. We invite you to take an active part in those discussions. If you have questions or concerns about your child’s progress, please contact the school directly to arrange a conference with your child’s teacher.

 

Sincerely,

 

San Jacinto Unified School District
