Update on state contract for myIGDIs universal screening early literacy assessment for preschool
The Iowa Department of Education is pleased to bring myIGDIs to preschool in Iowa at no cost. As an optional screening tool, myIGDIs for preschool literacy complements the required GOLD assessment. Screening with myIGDIs is part of a healthy MTSS system supporting a robust universal tier of instruction.
Districts that have previously used myIGDIs through the AEA contract may screen in the fall window (through November 14). New users interested in myIGDIs will have opportunities to attend an informational webinar and discuss assessment for the winter window or sooner. Requirements to assess with myIGDIs include participation in a preschool program that includes identifiers such as district ID, building ID, and student ID. myIGDIs is typically administered via two bluetooth-enabled iPads in person. School districts (new and prior users) should complete this interest survey to get started.
