i-Ready Efficacy: Research Support for i-Ready and ESSA
i-Ready Meets ESSA Level 3 Evidence-Based Requirements
i-Ready meets the criteria in the USDOE guidance as an evidence-based intervention that qualifies for Title I funding and is eligible for School Improvement Grants under Section 1003, as well as other federal and state grant programs.

In the fall of 2017, Curriculum Associates conducted comprehensive research into the impact of i-Ready Instruction on student learning gains. Using i-Ready Diagnostic data from more than four million students, our research team found that students using i-Ready Instruction experienced greater learning gains than students who did not use the program.

Learning gains associated with i-Ready were substantial. The strength of the evidence gathered means that i-Ready Instruction meets the criteria for ESSA Level 3: Promising Evidence with Favorable Effects.
