EdReady: Math Readiness System
Details
Activity Description
EdReady is a personalized math and English readiness learning system that evaluates the skills of each student in the context of their goal and then provides a learning pathway to mastery. EdReady supports and accelerates math and English readiness.
This activity takes you through the steps to set up your own EdReady account and how you can use it with your students.
OTAN supports agencies wanting to try EdReady with their students. They will set up teacher accounts and needed student pathways. Students are assigned a “Goal key” that ensures the student is working in their teacher’s account. Teachers can track student progress and time on task.
For more information about EdReady, please see the Webbased article titled, “Accelerate Learning with EdReady”.
Preparation
1. Decide on the learning goals needed and contact OTAN for help in setting up those goals.
2. Decide how you will use EdReady, as part of a blended classroom or as a distance learning course with an initial orientation.
3. Preview the site both as a teacher and as a student. You will need two different email addresses in order to do this.
4. Schedule time in the computer lab or with a computer cart so that each student will have their own computer.
5. Make sure you will have Internet access and can connect to the EdReady site.
Determine each student’s goal and the key to that goal. If necessary, prepare a card with the student’s name, their goal, and the goal key.
