Online Only Students
Aloha Students and Families,
Please remember to log in to Acellus every day BEFORE 9 am. The school day does not start at 9:00. Your teachers are online by 8:00 just as if you were on campus. Please, your attendance counts! You need to start with LangArts, then you can move to any class you want. Mahalo!
Waikoloa 100% Online Only Acellus Students are finishing up a diagnostic screener in Reading and Math called i-Ready. The i-Ready login can be found on your student's Clever page.
What is i-Ready?
The i-Ready Diagnostic is an adaptive assessment that adjusts its questions to suit your child’s needs. Each item a student receives is based on their answer to the previous question. For example, a series of correct answers will result in slightly harder questions, while a series of incorrect answers will yield slightly easier ones. The purpose of this is not to give your child a score or grade but to determine how to best support their learning.
What can I do to help?
To help prepare your child for the i-Ready Diagnostic, encourage them to:
- Get a good night’s sleep and eat a full breakfast on the day of the assessment.
- Try their best on each question and try not to rush.
- Try not to worry about questions to which they do not know the answers—remind them that it is expected that some questions will be difficult to answer.
- Use paper and pencil to show work for math questions.
Make sure it is quiet with no distractions.
Your student may have to log back into iReady through Clever if the test has timed out. The test will resume where your student has left off.
Please check Messages in Acellus or visit your child's Clever page for more information.
