Virginia DOE Awards Contract for Edmentum Exact Path
Dec 11 17
Edmentum has partnered with the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) after being awarded a contract to offer Exact Path as a student growth assessment. Exact Path provides assessment-driven individualized learning paths for K–8 reading, language arts, and math, aligned to the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL). When evaluating Exact Path, the VDOE conducted a rigorous review of standards alignment, research validity, ability to measure growth for every student, scoring and reporting, accommodations for a range of learning abilities, and superior training and services.
With Exact Path, educators can pinpoint valid measures of growth within each subject domain using adaptive diagnostic assessments that determine learners’ instructional levels, strengths, and needs. Students then receive tailored learning paths of 100% mobile-optimized lessons and activities designed to help build their skill competencies at their own pace. Early research confirms that when learning paths are used in focused sessions of just 20 minutes per week, per subject, students’ outcomes significantly increase.
