How Is i-Ready Diagnostic Score Determined?

To determine i-Ready Diagnostic score, you will find the ‘Scale Score’ that is the score that the students received on each test. In addition to Scale Score, the Lexile Score will also be found that indicates a reading level for a student.

The Lexile continuum of scores will range from a low end for beginning readers of BR400 to 1200+ for advanced readers in 5th grade. Furthermore, this score will actually help parents pick books for students to read. i-Ready also uses similar levels on the report cards and the state assessments, the SBA for the Read, Phonics and Math Level.

Here’s each level on i-Ready:

Level Level Name Definition
L4: Level 4 Exceeding Expectation At this level, the students successfully completed items well above what is expected of students at their grade level.
L3: Level 3 Met Expectation At this level, the students successfully completed items that are expected of students at their grade level.
L2: Level 2 Approaching Expectation At this level, the students successfully completed items that are close to grade level and missed some items expected to students at their grade level.
L1: Level 1 Below Expectation At this level, the students successfully completed items below grade level and did not successfully complete items that are expected at their grade level.

Here’s the increases of i-Ready Diagnostic Scale Score to achieve specified years of growth:
