MyPath includes assessment types that do not exist anywhere else. These assessments are used for placement.
Edgenuity Placement Exams- These tests (available for math and reading) are created by Edgenuity and designed to place students into an appropriate individualized learning path (ILP). Like Virtual Tutor diagnostics, the tests are static (i.e., they will be the same for all students every time). The items have been selected and sequenced to go from easiest to most difficult, allowing students to show what they know early. The questions on the placement exams are grouped and each group is linked to specific ILP. Students must earn at least a 75% on the question group to test out of that ILP level and move on to the next group, although all questions are presented to the student.
NWEA™ MAP® Growth™- The Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)® test is a third-party adaptive assessment that must be purchased from NWEA™. If districts wish, they can import their MAP® data into MyPath to drive ILP recommendations instead of using the Edgenuity Placement Exam. There is a separate charge to enable the import feature.
Renaissance Learning's® STAR™- Through our partnership with Renaissance Learning®, you can import your STAR™ data into MyPath and receive recommended ILPs for your students based on their specific needs. There is a separate charge to enable the import feature.
Scantron® Performance Series®- Through our partnership with Scantron®, you can import your Performance Series® data into MyPath and receive recommended ILPs for your students based on their specific needs. There is a separate charge to enable the import feature.
