Explore what makes myIGDIs so effective

The myIGDIs suite combines curriculum-based measures for early literacy and early numeracy with observational tools—known as ProLADR—for social-emotional learning and related developmental domains. These measures and tools give early childhood educators actionable insight into each child’s progress and instructional needs.


myIGDIs measures and seasonal benchmarks are grounded in years of research by child development experts, so you can have confidence in the reliability and validity of the results.

Clear instructions, student prompts, and scoring information mean you can administer the early literacy or early numeracy measures in about 10 minutes per child.

Seasonal benchmarks show you whether children are on track or need more intensive instruction and intervention to be kindergarten-ready. Progress-monitoring measures then help you to track growth and make necessary adjustments.

How it works

How does myIGDIs work?



You administer myIGDIs measures for early literacy and early numeracy in a 1-on-1 setting. For social-emotional and other developmental assessments, you observe students over time and record results.



When you view results, you can easily see whether each child is meeting seasonal benchmarks or needs additional support to catch up.



Use your assessment data to plan daily instruction and target interventions to each child’s specific learning needs.



In addition to seasonal screening, you can administer myIGDIs to monitor the progress of children receiving intervention.


Track the development of critical foundational skills

Discover how myIGDIs measures for early literacy and early numeracy—along with ProLADR observational tools for social-emotional and related development—help you determine each child’s readiness for kindergarten.

  • Rhyming (phonological awareness)
  • Alliteration (phonological awareness)
  • Sound ID (alphabet knowledge)
  • “Which One Doesn’t Belong?” (comprehension)

We were looking for an assessment that was fast, predictive of later academic success, and sensitive to growth. We selected myIGDIs because it was supported by research and very similar to assessments used by elementary schools implementing MTSS with older children.
