Edmentum, Inc., a leading provider of K-12 digital curriculum, assessments, and instructional services, today announced that it has been selected as winner of the “Adaptive Learning Solution Provider of the Year” award in the fourth annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by EdTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market.
Through a combination of Edmentum Exact Path and Apex Tutorials, Edmentum delivers two ‘breakthrough’ tools for adaptive learning needs under a single provider, backed by centralized support and professional development to ensure success and fidelity.
Exact Path diagnostics begin by first understanding learning needs, prioritizing accuracy, and efficiency to report student academic skill readiness for all K–12 students. Regardless of grade level or ability, these diagnostics adapt in real time to pinpoint where students are ready to learn and provide data to discern who may need more targeted intervention services. Exact Path also offers powerful content that includes tutorials, practice, and assessments to measure mastery.
Apex Tutorials is a modular and adaptive instructional tool for tier 1 students that is oriented around specific courses and EOCs, so students are prepared to earn credits and reach graduation goals. Tutorials include skill-level pretests, deployed on an educator’s schedule to tightly align with lesson plans/pacing guides, to assess grade-level skills as they are taught.
The pretests adapt instruction for each student, and extensive scaffolds and supports flex to meet individual needs. Each lesson includes direct instruction, practice, review, and scored assessment that feed reports and dashboards. Media also engages students and appeals to learning preferences.
As students demonstrate success, they are quickly awarded or, if needed, remediation can be immediately deployed. This global picture of student strengths and weaknesses, combined with a steady stream of skill-by-skill data, enables powerful conversations with stakeholders, easy grouping for further intervention services, and a data-driven plan for empowering those students who have otherwise decided academic success is not within reach.
“Both understanding each student’s specific needs and then finding a way to meet them is an overwhelming complexity educators must navigate. Educators need adaptive learning solutions in mainstream classrooms that more and more refocus explicitly on specific course readiness and assessment success,” said James Johnson, managing director, EdTech Breakthrough. “By combining a single diagnostic with two ‘breakthrough’ adaptive learning tools, students at every level get exactly what they need to meet academic goals and reach their potential, all from a single partner to guide you from installation to fidelity success. Congratulations to Edmentum on being our choice for ‘Adaptive Learning Solution Provider of the Year.’”
