For the sake of improving learning, Edmentum Exact Path, our K–8 individualized learning solution, applies many of the latest ideas behind building engagement in order to provide thoughtful features that focus on connecting students to what they’re learning and placing ownership directly on the student. So, how do we do that?—by ensuring that, on each step of the way, students can track their progress, understand their growth, and set individualized goals for future success. Today, let’s take a closer look at a few of the features within Exact Path that do just that.
In a recent Edmentum research study titled State-Level Student Growth Strategies, we provide descriptions of commonly used growth models and information about school accountability systems to examine how the growth models contribute to the system. For this blog post, we’ve synthesized some of that work to help illustrate the value of growth strategies in state accountability measures, and we include examples of models found across 20 different U.S. states.
At Edmentum, we’ve recently started offering educators the option to pilot our programs as part of our commitment to be a true partner. Basically, pilots offer schools and districts the chance to fully implement our Courseware, Study Island, or Exact Path online programs for up to an entire school year at no charge outside of the cost of training sessions.
Edmentum has worked closely with NWEA to build an integration that allows NWEA MAP Growth assessment Rasch Unit (RIT) scores to be uploaded directly to Exact Path so that each student receives an individualized, scaffolded learning path just right for him or her.
