State and Agency Approval

Colorado Approved READ Act Assessment

CO Dept Ed

Edmentum Exact Path, our K–12 diagnostic-driven, individualized instruction program, is now an approved assessment by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE). Exact Path has achieved approval status for use as a READ Act diagnostic assessment.

CDE Assessment Approval

Colorado READ Act diagnostic assessments are used to pinpoint the specific reading deficits of K-3 students who have been identified through screening to have significant reading challenges. All Colorado educators can now use Exact Path’s reading diagnostic to provide invaluable insights into students’ specific literacy weaknesses, skills, and instructional needs.

Evidence-Based Programming

The Colorado Department of Education found the Exact Path reading diagnostic to be valid, reliable, and to accurately measure students’ reading skills in the areas of phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary development, reading fluency, and reading comprehension.

Exact Path can also be used as an evidence-based intervention. Once a student completes the Exact Path diagnostic (or integrated NWEA® MAP® Growth™ or Renaissance® Star® assessment), they automatically receive personalized instruction designed with the science of reading to address their specific, identified reading deficiencies.

ESSA Tier 2 evidence shows use of Exact Path results in significantly higher reading achievement for students.
