Developing solid literacy skills and core math concepts are the first steps toward academic success. To help struggling students close gaps in math and reading, Pathblazer® gives students an individualized path to move toward grade-level proficiency.
The fun, motivating content in Pathblazer keeps students engaged as they learn, which helps accelerate them to grade level.
Students begin by taking an adaptive screener to determine functional level, and then a diagnostic pretest at that level to pinpoint skill gaps. Or schools can import existing student data from one of our assessment integration partners to create prescriptive learning paths without additional testing.
Each student is automatically assigned an individualized learning path designed to fill gaps and accelerate them to on-level mastery. All lessons are aligned to state standards and the Common Core, and built around a gradual-release instructional model of explicit instruction, supported and independent practice, and assessment.
The real-time intervention reports in Pathblazer track student progress toward standards mastery, inform small-group instruction, and help teachers plan for one-on-one instruction with students.
Engaging on-screen instructional videos teach students about a skill or concept. Students are presented with examples, modeling, and real-world contexts in a dynamic and fun environment.
Students then have the opportunity to practice the skill they were just taught. Scaffolds, like hints and reteaching, help students become competent at the skill without getting frustrated.
As students work through an activity, the supports and help they receive are reduced, so they can work more on their own. Students still receive immediate feedback if they make a mistake, but the feedback becomes more limited in scope.
Activity quizzes and unit tests inform continuous feedback for students and teachers. This way, if additional intervention is needed, educators are immediately notified so the student isn’t stuck in a loop of frustration and can accelerate forward.
