  • Many Florida schools, including Broward County Public Schools, are using

    i-Ready as an engaging online tool to make homework less of a chore for

    students and parents.

    STEMS Administration in partnership with the 2016-17 STEMS PTO are

    exploring ways to make i-Ready available for our kids (and parents) too!

    What is i-Ready and how can it help my child

    with homework? I-Ready helps children learn Common Core and state standard concepts

    using an adaptive learning instruction customized for each student. The

    program includes regular adaptive assessments that analyze students'

    weak and strong areas. This program features lessons across K-12 levels

    and helps monitor students' learning progression throughout their school

    careers. Animated characters make i-Ready fun and engaging for students,

    who also undergo regular intervention and feedback.
