Select the i-Ready Diagnostic Results - SY:2020/21 file layout to import the i-Ready assessment results.
When the i-Ready Diagnostic Results file layout is selected, the system will add/update the appropriate codes for the test areas and parts into the Testing Control (CTL) and Content Standards (CSN) tables. Since there are a variety of test parts Aeries is defining all of them. We do not recommend that districts create their own codes for the i-Ready assessments.
The Import Test Results page has been programmed to import only the Diagnostic Results layout. This is a single comma separated file (.csv) for English results and a single file for Math results. The data files contain student demographic information and the assessment results. Each i-Ready data file should be imported separately. For information on how to create the i-Ready Diagnostic Results export files please see Downloading i-Ready Results.
Select the file and click on Open. Then continue to load and match the records.
The Default Date for the i-Ready Diagnostic Results is the oldest date in the data file. The Testing Administration for the test results is YYMM where YY is the year and MM is the month of the student's test Start Date in the data file. The Default Date and default Testing Administration will be used for any records that do not have a test Start Date in the data file.
The Student ID is the primary identification in the i-Ready Diagnostic Results data file, but the Student Name is also available. Please note that the i-Ready Diagnostic Results data file does not include Student Birth Date, so the options that include Birth Date should not be selected.
The Edit button to the left of the test record can be used to manually match test records to students that may not have been matched during the match process or that may have been matched to an incorrect student. Please see the Import Test Results article for detailed instructions on how to do this.
Click on the Print Unmatched Students button to print a report listing any students that were not able to be matched.
After the import process has completed an email with summary information will be sent to the user that initiated the import.
The i-Ready Diagnostic Results data file is a cumulative data file. During the course of the year each download from the vendor will include the entire year of data. The Import Test Results process will only import the most recent test scores which are flagged with a Y in the Most Recent Diagnostic column of the data file. The import process will add/update records to the Test Scores (TST) and Content Standard Scores (CST) tables.
The Test Scores (TST) page includes the overall performance information for the assessment.
The Content Standards Scores (CST) page includes the Domain Scale Score and Domain Placement for the asessment.
Below is a chart of where the i-Ready Diagnostic Results scores are stored in the Test Scores (TST) and Content Standards Scores (CST) table.
|i-Ready Score Field||Aeries Field||Test Details Identifier||Notes|
|Most Recent Diagnostic (Y/N)||N/A||Only records with a 'Y' in this field will be processed.|
|Start Date||Date Taken (TST.TD), (CST.TD)|
Test Admin (TST.TA), (CST.TA)
|The Start Date is used to determine the Testing Administration (YYMM) of the record|
|Overall Scale Score||Scale Score (TST.SS)|
|Overall Relative Placement||Performance Level (TST.PL)|
A codified value for the Overall Relative Placement field:
TST.PL = 1 - Mid or Above Grade Level
TST.PL = 2 - Early On Grade Level
TST.PL = 3 - 1 Grade Level Below
TST.PL = 4 - 2 Grade Levels Below
TST.PL = 5 - 3 or More Grade Levels Below
|Lexile Measure||Other (TST.OT)||A negative number in TST.OT indicates a BR level.|
|Domain Part||Part (CST.PT)||The i-Ready ELA assessment includes 6 domain column sets and the i-Ready Math assessment includes 4 domain column sets. Each domain has a test part in the Content Standards (CST) table:|
CST.ID = IRDYREAD
CST.ID = IRDYMATH
|Domain Scale Score||Scale Score (CST.SS)|
|Domain Placement||Other (CST.OT)||CST.OT is a text field that contains the value of the Domain Placement|
