How to access Exact Path

What is Exact Path? Who has access?

Exact Path is an online solution that will import NWEA (MAP Growth) results, assign instruction, auto-group students, progress monitor and provide data to teachers to help with adjusting instruction as needed. The program is available in Math, Language Arts and Reading, though students will only be automatically placed in learning paths for the subjects in which they have NWEA (MAP) data. They have access to the other subjects, but will need to adapt to placement within the program.

Edmentum (the Exact Path parent company) is offering BPS schools free licenses through June 30, 2020. It is only available to schools in grades K-12 who have opted into a pilot program.

How do I use Exact Path?

For schools piloting Exact Path, students’ NWEA MAP Growth data has already been loaded into the system. Exact Path has created learning paths, or a sequence of lessons and activities within their zone of proximal development. Early research shows that when learning paths are used in focused sessions of just 20 minutes per week, per subject students will experience growth. Teachers may monitor how students are progressing within their learning paths, adjust assignments for students, and draw from program data to inform instruction.  

For students without NWEA data, either because they did not take a MAP Growth administration or did not assess in a specific subject, students will have an automatic grade-level learning path created. This learning path can be adjusted if needed.

What devices is it compatible with?

Exact Path works on Laptops, Desktops, Chromebooks, iPads, and Kindle devices.
