i-Ready touted to help Albany students

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Dougherty County school system is using a new tool to help students succeed on the new state testing system.

Georgia Milestones is a computer-based assessment, which will measure critical thinking by asking students open ended questions.

Teachers are using a computer program called i-Ready to give students practice answering questions on a computer. And they're hoping it's putting parents at ease.

"They're able to see there and watch as their children are working on their content areas for reading and math. They're going to notice that with the i-Ready it puts the children on point. They cannot go to the next level unless they have succeeded with that particular point that they're on," said Parent Teacher Facilitator Deborah Bailey.

The Georgia Milestones Assessment System replaces the CRCT and EOCT. The goal is to give educators a better understanding of students' progress.
