i-Ready is an awesome program and is a great blended learning tool that all teachers should, try to, add to their toolbox if possible. Below, I have created a series of videos that will make it very easy to get started with i-Ready. Additionally, you may want to take a look at my comprehensive review of i-Ready here.

Getting Started With i-Ready
This video will walk you through the i-Ready interface and features.
i-Ready Home Tab
This tab will display quicklinks to reports that may be generated. This video will allow you to see what is available to you on the landing page after logging into the software.

You will be able to manage your classroom from here (add instructional groups, add classes, etc).
You can use this feature to determine what your students see after logging into i-Ready.
I-Ready Assignments Tab Overview
Generate awesome reports using i-Ready. You can use these reports for parent teacher conferences, Student Support Team meetings, for your records, progress monitoring, etc.
Customize i-Ready to meet the needs of your students.
You can use this feature to create tests for students (diagnostic or progress monitoring). Additionally, here you will be able to adjust the lesson plans within i-Ready.
Download lesson plans and access your activity feed, and so on.
Student Lesson Plan
Adjust the lessons that your students take. Therefore, you will be able to interfere with the default placement that a student receives from i-Ready.
Create Instructional Groups
This is a nifty little module that allows you to segregate your students into instructional groups. Therefore, you will be able to assign activities much faster to a particular group of students.
You can use this feature to make adjustment to the lesson sequence.
You can use this feature to assign extra lessons to your students. For example, you may assign lessons to correlate with a lesson currently being taught to reinforce a particular concept, or you may want to assign a task you think the student needs.
