A 2023 study provides evidence that Exact Path diagnostic assessments measure the same knowledge and skills compared to the OST. These results support the use of Exact Path as a strong predictor of performance and as an early indicator of student achievement on the OST.
In preparation for OST 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
