Pathblazer (K-6) 

Odyssey : Social Studies (Grades 1-6) Science (Grades 2-6)

Teacher Provided Login

Pathblazer is a personalized intervention program that provides supplemental online instruction with fun, motivating content that builds foundational skills in math and ELA. Using existing student data or results from a screener and pretest, Pathblazer immediately identifies where students are struggling and provides the targeted instruction they need to close early learning gaps. The enjoyable instruction in math and reading helps educators engage students, keep their attention, and accelerate them to grade level. And the data that Pathblazer collects as students complete their work gives teachers the power to monitor learning and maximize results.

Students begin with an adaptive screener to determine functional level, and then take a diagnostic pretest at that level to pinpoint skill gaps. Or, schools can import existing student data from one of our assessment integration partners to create prescriptive learning paths with no additional testing.

Each student is provided with an individualized learning path designed to fill gaps and accelerate them to on-level mastery. All lessons are built around a gradual-release instructional model of explicit instruction, supported practice, independent practice, and assessment.
