By Marla Weber, Exeter-Milligan 2nd Grade Instructor
Second graders, like all K-5 students at Exeter-Milligan, are using a web-base program called, MyPath, this year. MyPath is a unique program that links data from NWEA (Northwest Evaluation Association) test scores to create a personalized learning path for each student. The program pinpoints learning gaps in reading and math. It adapts lessons to help students stay on track, get back to grade-level or even challenge students to move on to a higher level of learning. Since it is an adaptive learning program, instruction and pacing changes as the student answers questions. It may adjust questions to be more challenging when a child has reached mastery of a skill or it may provide additional review when a student continues to struggle with a particular task. This program even prioritizes the skills each child does. Teachers also can adjust and tailor assignments to coordinate with classroom learning needs. Students love the engaging instruction while building confidence in their learning.
