SCANTRON ADAPTIVE ASSESSMENT TECHNOLOGY ADDED TO EDGENUITY’S MYPATH SUPPLEMENTAL INSTRUCTION PROGRAM
Collaboration between Scantron and Edgenuity bolsters MyPath’s ability
to differentiate and personalize the student learning experience.
EAGAN, MN– June 30, 2015 – Scantron Corporation, a leading, world-wide provider of assessment solutions for education, commercial and government organizations and Edgenuity, a provider of engaging online and blended learning education solutions are pleased to announce Scantron Performance Series® data will be incorporated into Edgenuity MyPath™. This product solution will enable school districts to use previously collected data to offer targeted student instruction.
Educators will import student math and reading scores from Scantron Performance Series into MyPath, which will then recommend Individual Learning Paths (ILPs) for students. These ILPs align to common core and state standards. They make use of a wide array of instructional material—videos, interactive tasks, practice activities, and comprehension reviews. As students work through their lessons, educators will receive dynamic, detailed reports to monitor progress.
“We are excited to enable a more personalized approach to student learning and more targeted instructional planning for educators,” said Jay Whitchurch, Executive Vice President of Digital Solutions at Scantron. “We have seen classrooms with a seven-year grade level range in student performance, making it challenging to truly differentiate instruction. This combined solution will help overcome the inherent challenges associated with varying student abilities.”
“Edgenuity MyPath is designed to meet students at their current learning level and provide the specific support they need to catch up, keep up, or get ahead,” said Sari Factor, CEO of Edgenuity. “The integration of data from Scantron Performance Series into MyPath brings together best-in-class assessment and instruction to help schools and districts drive better student achievement.”
The combination of these two assessment platforms creates a better opportunity for schools to offer customized, individualized learning paths that can reinforce grade-level concepts, review lower-level skills, or offer advanced enrichment materials.
