Beginning this year, all Herman and AdVenture students were expected to do i-Ready lessons and quizzes. This happens at school on Chromebooks and at home online. The reason is the principal set a goal for the school to improve students’ skills using i-Ready ELA and math lessons and  quizzes that assess what students have learned.  

i-Ready is a learning website that involves cartoons to try and make learning more fun. Some students think the voice acting can be annoying and the corny jokes sometimes waste your. Most of the time, i-Ready characters  repeat quotes when you get a question right or wrong. which students find annoying. This reporter interviewed Luke Pires, who was happy to share his thoughts on i-Ready.

Luke said that iReady does provide a refresher course on mathematics and language arts; however, some aspects are unnecessary, such as the corny jokes and annoying voices. Something Luke likes about i-Ready is how it sometimes incorporates fun games in the learning process. What Luke dislikes about i-Ready is the amount of time it actually wastes because of the character dialogue. One thing Luke would change is the voice actors. Luke was honest and he said that he only does i-Ready for the assigned lessons. He said the lessons were simply too long.

i-Ready lessons usually takes about 30 minutes to complete and students sometimes need to take a quiz over and over again until they get a passing score. If you fail a quiz a certain amount of times they make you do different lessons and it seems useless to do this because you’ll eventually get back to the quiz you couldn’t pass and all that time you spent doing those other lessons were a waste of time.

    I like how you mentioned a classmate and the overall topic and point of the article was clear and easy to understand but there is a error in the second paragraph.

    Good job writing this article. the only thing I would add is that it takes two tries to get something wrong in order for the lesson to disappear.
