  • Learning Path Progress Usage Report

    Feel confident students are making the most of their time in Exact Path with a detailed exportable report that captures key usage metrics such as time spent in their learning path, number of activities completed, and time in system.

  • Searchable Content

    Accessing high-quality content just became easier. You are now able to conduct a global search by skill to locate and preview content for teacher-led whole-class instruction or small-group intervention. Similarly, this functionality will be extended into global search by standard in August.

  • Flash-Free Learning Paths

    Beginning July 31st, all learning path content will be 100% mobile-optimized. This ensures your students will have an optimal user experience on all devices, including Chromebooks and iPads. As Exact Path continues to expand, we are committed to offering a Flash-free environment for you and your students.

  • K-8 NWEA Integration

    Your MAP assessments scores just became even more powerful. Edmentum Exact Path has partnered with the NWEA™ to offer a fully integrated solution that provides adaptive learning paths for students based on their MAP® Growth and MAP Growth K-2 assessment results.

  • 7th & 8th Grade Availability

    This August, Exact Path is extending through middle school! Soon, all 7th and 8th grade students can expect the same features and functionality offered to K-6 students, but with age-appropriate content, a more mature interface, and instruction that extends through 12th grade for accelerated learners.

  • Reporting Updates

    Administrators are now able to filter and generate reports according to specific demographic sub groups to support accountability requirements. Additionally, this August national norms for our adaptive diagnostic assessment will be made available for K-6 students. 

  • Study Island Topic Suggestions

    Just in time for the 2017-18 school year, Study Island and Exact Path are linking up so you can see suggested Study Island topics listed in Exact Path student progress views. Connect instruction in Exact Path with additional practice and reinforcement in Study Island by leveraging this helpful feature.

  • Auto-Grouping

    Exact Path's grouping feature is getting even smarter. In addition to being able to filter student performance by skill or domain, an auto-group button will now move students automatically into homogeneous small groups based on ability to help you make instructional decisions even faster. 

  • Parent Letters & Login Cards

    To help encourage use at home, we're launching printable parent letters that are now available in the Help Center. Parent letters serve as a friendly introduction to the online program and coach parents on how to use key product features. They are available for both easy login and the traditional login process in English and Spanish.

  • Mastery Trophies & Teacher Challenges

    To inspire motivation and keep learning on track, Exact Path now incorporates mastery trophies and challenge badges. Mastery trophies award student proficiency following a learning path Progress Check. For every skill students master, they will earn a trophy. Challenge badges are teacher-defined motivational tools that can be set up based on time-on-task or mastery.

  • Summer 2017 Platform Enhancements

    This summer, we have taken the Study Island you know and love to the next level! We have made changes to both educator and student features—and they're all based on YOUR feedback. Want to learn more about these enhancements? Register for a What's New with Study Island live webinar. If none of the dates or times work with your schedule, register anyway and we'll send you the recording.

    New Student Dashboard

    The student dashboard has gotten a reboot! In an effort to give students more agency over their learning journey, we have elevated elements of student success paired beside next steps for ongoing practice. The redesigned dashboard includes active assignments, in-progress topics, suggested topics based on prior performance, and Blue Ribbons earned. Learn more.

    Updated Scoring Model to Highlight Best Score

    Rather than using a cumulative score to assess mastery of a topic, we are now using an even more meaningful measure—best score. Students will now be asked to complete a standardized 10-question practice session every time to demonstrate mastery and earn their Blue Ribbon. As students work through their session, they will have the option to save their work and return to that same 10-question session, beginning just where they left off without skipping a beat. When a session is completed, students will see their best score and number of attempts on that topic. Similarly, educators will also see their student's highest scores, but can continue to access cumulative scores via reports. Learn more.

    View Standards more easily in the Topic Tree

    In Study Island, content is built from the ground up to your state standards. To help you easily identify how each topic is aligned, we've surfaced standards even more. Next to each topic, the standard number can now be found. With one click, both students and educators can read the details of that specific standard to get a clearer picture of what will be covered in that practice session.

    Launch a Built Test in Group Sessions

    You are now able to launch Built Tests in a Group Session environment for more collaborative practice with your students. Want to review a recent assessment or practice test questions together as a class? Now, you can.

    Assign Group Sessions from Class Manager

    In addition to leveraging Group Sessions from the Topic Tree, Group Sessions are now listed as an assignment type you can choose from via Class Manager.

    Group Sessions Player Enhancements

    In-session upgrades to Group Sessions now include an expanded question window for easier viewing on your smart board, and reporting that allows you to review results during the session without exposing student names.

    Partnership with NWEA MAP for Science
