Student Guide to ReadyCheck

This article is for MATHia Customers who use Carnegie Learning textbooks. To see ReadyCheck articles for MATHiaFlex Customers, please go here.




ReadyCheck is a brief, formative assessment created to support student readiness by assessing readiness prior-grade standards prerequisites to gauge learning gaps or unfinished learning. Teachers may then use readiness data to determine instructional planning, such as assigning content in MATHia or MATHiaFlex without redirecting valuable class time towards remediation. ReadyChecks help teachers meet students where they are so they can jump into teaching on-grade-level content right away.

ReadyChecks assess Common Core standards (with state standards also tagged) and can be assigned at the student or class level.

ReadyChecks assess a set of prior-grade standards associated with the concept title (ex. Relating Quantities). These are approximately 5-10questions long.

*Note: All ReadyCheck questions are multiple-choice with a single correct answer.
