Edgenuity today announced that students from Jessamine County Schools in Kentucky have demonstrated improvements across reading and mathematics after using Edgenuity MyPath. The results were reported by Jessamine County over the 2013-2014 school year.
Jessamine County Schools, which had previously been using Edgenuity’s core curriculum for students in middle and high school, introduced MyPath during the 2013-2014 school year to students in grades 6-10 who performed below grade level on the Northwest Evaluation AssociationTM (NWEATM) MAP® Reading and Mathematics tests.
After one year, findings were as follows:
In reading comprehension:
- Sixth, seventh and eighth grade students achieved gains of 5.5 points, 5.9 points and 5.5 points respectively, while ninth and tenth grade students achieved gains of 0.8 points and 1.7 points respectively.
- Sixth, seventh and eighth grade students achieved gains of 5.1 points, 5.0 points and 4.4 points respectively, while ninth and tenth grade students showed gains of 2.2 points and 2.9 points respectively.
Edgenuity MyPath includes a placement test to determine an Individualized Learning Path (ILP) for each student; alternatively, districts can import data from MAP or other supported third-party assessments. Results are used to recommend a customized sequence of engaging, interactive lessons that reinforce grade-level concepts, review lower-level skills, or expose advanced students to enrichment material. Support extends to students performing as low as a third-grade level, although content is written to be age-appropriate for middle and high school students.
