The Starkville Oktibbeha School District has implemented a program called i-Ready Diagnostic and Instruction that focuses on reading and math.  i-Ready Diagnostic and Instruction helps teachers effectively assess their students and then provide individualized instruction based on each student’s unique needs. Students will complete an adaptive assessment that adjusts the difficulty of questions according to each student’s performance in order to determine his or her abilities. Once your child completes the test, he or she will be assigned online instruction to support his or her progress in mastering each skill. To download an i-Ready Parent Training Guide, click here.
