i-Ready Benchmark Assessments (Monday, February 1 through Friday, February 12)

During this week for ELA (February 1, 2021) and next week for Math (February 8, 2021), we would like to partner with you again in having all students remotely complete an online ELA and Math i-Ready Benchmark. Since the beginning of the year, students have completed their initial diagnostic assessments and have completed adaptive ELA/MATH lessons. Parents also should have received the i-Ready diagnostic report from the school via Pupilpath. The February Benchmark will allow students, teachers, and parents to see the growth that has been made since the beginning of the year. Like the first assessment, please allow 45 minutes (one sitting or in increments) for your child to take the benchmark. Students should complete the benchmark independently and the completion, and not the actual assessment grade, of the benchmark will count for a grade in ELA and Math for Marking Period 3. Please help us ensure that your child takes their time while completing the assessment so that they may receive the most accurate results possible. 

To access the Benchmark:
1.  Log into TeachHub
2.  Use Student NYC students account 
3.  Click the Clever app (Big C) 
4.  Click the I-Ready app (tri-colored cube) 
5.  Click on Reading or Math.  
Should you have any questions or issues, please do not hesitate to reach out to Ms. Lam (ELA) or Mr. Annello (Math).
