I just learned that i-Ready has a set number of points that it considers an appropriate amount of growth for the year. For my grade (3rd) it is 30 points for the year in ELA and 27 points for the year in Math. Since everyone is so focused on "GROWTH" these days, I felt the students should be keeping up with their "growth" as well.
I quickly whipped up a form to give them so that they could keep up with how they are doing towards their year's growth. I think this will help those who are bouncing up and down like a ball realize that they are not moving up consistently as well.
I also made a display to put on my wall showing those who have met the growth expected for the year. I hope it can help your students as well.
