Exact Path Diagnostic and New Hampshire SAS Correlational Study

Full Report
XP and NH SAS Correlation Thumb

This research study correlated scores on Exact Path diagnostic assessments across testing windows (Fall, Winter, and Spring) with Spring 2021-2023 New Hampshire SAS test scores. Strong correlations were found between Exact Path diagnostic assessment scores and NH SAS assessment scores across all grades 3-8, subjects, and seasons. High correlations were also found between spring Grade 2 Exact Path diagnostic scores in reading and mathematics and NH SAS Grade 3 scores. These results support use of Exact Path as an early indicator of student achievement in mathematics and reading, and a strong predictor of success on NH SAS assessments.

In preparation for New Hampshire SAS 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
