Exact Path diagnostic assessment scores are highly correlated to the Florida Assessment of Student Thinking (FAST) scores in grades 3, 4, 5, and 7 in math and in grades 3-9 in reading. These findings suggest that the assessments measure similar skills and knowledge, and that Exact Path is a strong predictor of FAST performance.
In preparation for FAST assessments, educators can use Exact Path diagnostic results to:
- Identify students who need additional support
- Prioritize content areas to focus on
- Inform data-driven instruction and targeted intervention
- Help ensure that students are on track to meet academic standards
