Edmentum Exact Path Demo

– [Narrator] Thank you, and you are on – Good morning, everyone I like to welcome you to today’s webinar My name is Dr. Aaron Espolt I’m the Executive Director of School Design and Innovation at SDE I also understand how busy everyone is managing all the different demands of your time So I appreciate you choosing to be a part of today’s webinar We have currently over 640 participants on this webinar and the numbers are still climbing So I understand that there is a high interest in this, and this is why we decided to join with Edmentum today and provide some more information and hopefully answer some of your questions Our main priority here at SDE is to support the work that is being done at the local level And one effort to do that is to provide Exact Path SDE used a portion of the SRO funds to provide districts at no cost to them, an adaptive, personalized learning path, a tool that can be used with all students K through 12 To bring you more information about this opportunity, SDE has partnered with Edmentum today to provide a free demo of Exact Path, provide a Q&A session and give you the next steps, take advantage of this opportunity Just a couple of housekeeping items before we get started, today’s webinar will be recorded and made available on SDE’s YouTube page You can just simply search Oklahoma State Department of Education on that, and you should be able to locate this If you’re having any issues with sound or video you can always watch it at a later day Additionally, if you have any questions today during the webinar, please use the chat box feature within Zoom, and we’ll address those during our Q&A session Again, your mic is muted, we have close to 700 participants now, with that many participants, you can imagine the talking over each other So if you could just post your questions in chat, that’d be the best way for us to answer those So at this time I’d like to introduce our speakers today Kia Devers, Angela Bilyeu, and Madison Mitchell, and I will kick it to you all Thank you – Dr. Espolt, thank you Thank you so much, we appreciate your time today We appreciate you inviting us to speak to Oklahoma educators as we move forward in this partnership, we’re extremely excited about it So we are going to talk a little bit today about Exact Path, what it is and how we can use it within our schools as we’re going to benefit and make sure that we are supporting our students no matter what our fall learning looks like And so we’ll talk a little bit today about the introduction to Exact Path, and then we’ll look and look at our system set up resources How can we help you get set up very seamlessly and let us see as districts move forward into our programs, how can we help you get connected in making sure that all of our educators, as well as our students are ready to go with Exact Path We’ll look at some data driven decisions, we’ll look at the data that we provide that it will help you best fit the needs of our students as they are coming to us with the summer slide times too We’ll be able to identify those discrete skills that maybe our students need help with as they’re moving forward We’ll talk a little bit about our learning paths Our learning paths are really the heartbeat of Exact Path and how we can help our students and meet them where they’re at We know there’s gonna be a broad spectrum of students as they come back to us in the fall Whenever we’re in a brick and mortar, or if we’re still virtual, or if we’re in a hybrid, we’re gonna have students that have had different experiences through this academic process And we’ll also view ways to monitor student progress We always wanna focus on growth, right? We’re meeting our students where they’re at and so we’re gonna then focus on how we can grow them Can we get them farther than where we started? And then we’ll look again at help and support resources I do have Kia Devers and I have Madison Mitchell with me today, so they will be monitoring our chat They’ll be helping me answer questions and making sure that I am making this hour a benefit for you, and that you’re getting what you need We are available at any time to help answer those questions after this webinar So we definitely wanna partner with you and make sure that we are successful and that we, again, we are your educator first we’re helping your educators prepare as well as being beneficial for your students Kia or Madison, would you like to say hello? – [Madison] Good morning, everybody This is Madison Michelle I just threw into the chat, but as Angela said, if you will submit your questions through that mechanism, I will occasionally chime in here to feed some of those to Angela

and we’ll do a designated Q&A here at the end – Thank you so much – And hello everyone to those of you I met last week, glad to have you here again And I look forward to touching bases with you at the end of Angela’s presentation about next steps – Perfect Thank you very much Kia All right, so we’re gonna move forward, there we are So just a little bit and for those of you that are new, I know that I went over this We had a little bit of a discussion last week, but just for those of you that maybe not quite sure who Edmentum is We are EdTech pioneers, this is just a little bit of our history that we have currently partnered with Base It is a social emotional learning courseware That is our newest endeavor as we move forward in making sure that we are meeting the needs of our students And then we’ll come back and we’ll start all the way from 1960, where we have PLATO Learning That’s where online learning was invented at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana We’re also a lot of people will recognize Study Island Study Island has been as part of our solution pathway here and has provided 20 years of standards based mastery and test preparation program It has also grown up quite a bit and matured through the years So you’ll see a little bit of a different face on that Study Island, if you haven’t seen it in a while But in 2017, we were able to launch Exact Path It’s a way for us to deliver assessments, driven by math, reading and language arts instruction, and able to computer adaptive, diagnostic assessment use that to really pinpoint where our students are and what foundational skills that they might need, that they are lacking in, or might have gaps as well as the able to give our students that are ready to move on, give them some exposure to upper grade levels that they are ready to attend to and see So this that spectrum of meeting those needs for those students, we recently just received for Exact Path, received the CODiE Award It was recognized as the best tool that can be used to increase attention, responsibility, independence, and engagement, and learning We’re very excited about our Exact Path and we really feel it’s the best tool to make sure that our students are getting what they need and that our teachers are being able to meet our students where they’re at We wanna make sure, and we all know this as we kind of went through the accountability piece that, our student A or student B, they’re gonna start in different areas They’re gonna start at different points, but we need to get them on their pathway that’s specific to them So we’re making sure that they are growing at their rate and what’s best for them And that we’re not trying to make a one size fit all for all of our students So we start with that baseline and we use that baseline to create those individualized learning paths So we have different partnerships that we work with We’ve got a diagnostic that we use, it’s the Exact Path diagnostic And then we also have an NWEA and Renaissance partnership as well So we’re able to work with those sites to create those scores and create those instructional paths from those baseline scores From that, we’re gonna have that K through 12 progression We’re gonna be able to provide students with company based curriculum and automatic remediation at those discrete skill levels So not only are we using the diagnostics to create learning paths for our students, but that knowledge map we’ll view here in a moment It works from the student’s progress, it sees how they are doing with the skills, and it will either push them forward as they’re ready, or it will take them back if they need to build a foundational skill first, before they revisit that skill if they were unable to master So with that, we’re targeting those unique learners and we’re planning for our next move with our teacher notifications and digital assignments We’re able to help our teachers really step back, be facilitators, be able to just monitor how our students are doing as they take ownership of their learning of the pacing of their learning Teachers are able to view that and watch as their students grow and then step in when they need to, with resources that are readily available for them And we’re gonna be able to look at that data to analyze the growth and the progress So we usage at the via, excuse me, the growth and the progress as we use those aggregated data views, whether it be district level, class level, or just specific student reports, we’re able to provide that to you Okay, we are going to step out of our PowerPoint here, and I like to talk with my hands So I’m going to stop my video just so I’m not distracting

So I’ve logged in here as a teacher, this is where the teacher’s dashboard comes in The teacher is able to see the progress from the time period of how the students are working They’re able to see the different notifications that might be there for our teacher to work with So for our struggling students if they’ve failed something once, or if they failed something twice after they revisited it, you know where are those students So it’s an ability for me as an educator to wake up a Monday morning, whether it be ready to go in that brick and mortar, or whether it be virtually to be able to say, “Okay, these are the students that I need to focus on “These are the students that might be struggling, “that have failed something that need me to step in “and have that intervention piece.” Then we can move through, we’ve got a different math reading, language arts here From our classes page, we’ve got a grouping feature that we’ll view here in a moment, as well as a content search This content search allows educators to assign content to learners above and beyond their learning path, as well as assignments and challenges We all know that students love to be challenged and they love that motivational piece so they can win trophies and they can have different challenge pieces that we can work with So just a different motivation piece for that student to stay engaged Our engagement pieces are that our students are presented different material with common characters in younger grades, and common formats, in older grades, that may be different types of situations You’re gonna see 13 different types of media, modes of media that the students will be able to use Technology enhanced items, videos, audio files, things like that, that they’re gonna not just see one teacher video talking head at them They’re gonna be able to experience the content and manipulate it as they work through They won’t be able to log in and walk off, they’ll have to work through the system itself So we’ll pull up here, there’s a current activity This allows us to monitor our students’ current progress In my demo account, I have these different classes set up So we’ll look in six through eight just to kind of stay in the middle and you’ll be able to see a list of students This list of students allows me to see their current learning level, their total skills that they’ve mastered, and then which learning path they might be on You’ll have multiple learning paths as you have multiple diagnostics You can give those depending on what your school chooses, three to four times a year These learning these diagnostics will then create that individualized path and that path, then we’ll show the students here in blue It says, these are things that the student is working on I can see that they’re practicing, or if they haven’t started yet You’ll be able to see if they’re struggling Here Kaiden, the student is struggling with two-step real world problems So that would be something that I’m gonna need to take a step and talk to him and see where that misconception is coming from You’ll also see these trophies, these trophies represent progress checks Progress checks are what allow us to show that the student has mastered that standard and was able to retain that mastery level over a period of time and apply it to a new situation A progress check is 20 questions, 20 questions with four skills that each skill has five questions The mastery of that skill is we have is four out of five So you can see here this student Areeba, she was able to master all four of those skills, she has that green here If a student is unable to master, like we have Pawel here, he would go back and have these building block activities that he would need to then work through before going back in to these skills he was unable to master And so we can look a little bit more in depth as we look to the learning path, but this would be a quick way for you to say, “Okay, I’m gonna need to meet with Kasim today, “I’m gonna need to meet with Areeba, “and I’m gonna need to meet with Kaiden today.” Because these kids are working through these and they’re struggling I haven’t done anything, I haven’t assigned them anything, I haven’t had to grade anything, I’m just being able to really monitor this and then facilitate that intervention when needed So here is our knowledge map Our knowledge map is really the heartbeat of Exact Path I equate it to a digital data wall This allows me to see my students here and allows me to see where they’re at skill-wise These skills are discrete skills We’ve taken the Oklahoma Academic Standards and we’ve broken it down into at more granular level, because we all know that academic

or academic standards bundle skills And so we wanna make sure that we’re really getting to that nitty-gritty for our students, to be able to make sure that they are focusing on those foundational skills and being able to use those to apply to new skills So here the light green shows us that these students were able to master these skills on that K through 12 progression So these students are in sixth through eighth grade, they’re showing mastery of these skills through their assessment piece You’ll see here, these four skills This is that dark blue So Mr. Cair here was assigned four skills to start working with, these four skills are a manageable chunk We don’t want the students to see more than four skills at a time for our older kids, for our littles, they’re gonna see one to two skills at a time We don’t wanna overwhelm them We don’t want them to stop before they even get started We want them to see that, “Hey, I can do this “This is a manageable piece.” And so we’re able to present these to the students They’re able to work through these skills Here you’ll see that through that progress check that we talked a little bit about earlier, Pawel here was able to work with these and get trophies, they were able to show mastery So I can click on any of these darker squares and it will list out that learner experience that that student had It will show me that learning path, the lesson, the practice, the mastery quiz that was completed within that skill It will also click down here and show me the Oklahoma Academic Standard that that skill is connected to This is great when we’re looking at reporting work or time spent for IEP is 504 for RTI, it’s a way for us to make sure that we are addressing those Oklahoma Academic Standards with these skills Then you’ll also see what a student’s take in that progression, as a section for progress check So you can see here what the student was able to master four out of five I’m able to see that, which is great I’m able to review that skill to see what that looks like I’m gonna close out of here And then we’ll look here we’ve got a student here We’ve got Mr. Kasim, he was unable to do well for symbolizing addition and subtraction so he was through his progress check, I’m gonna open that up again, I see his learning path I can see that standards coverage, and then I can see that progress check So I look back at that learning path and I say, okay, he did 100% percent on the practice, 100% on the quiz Let’s go look at that progress check, we’re able to review that So I’m able to look through here, and I can have that conversation, whether it’s face to face or whether it’s a virtual environment I’m able to look through and have those conversations with him and understand where that misconception was coming and why he’s getting this wrong Maybe because he rushed through because he didn’t think anybody would know Well, we know we’ve had a conversation about it, we need to go back and revisit that Maybe it’s because there’s a process or content or a context error I can identify that with my intentional conversation and then I can come back and I can get an intentional intervention piece with that student If I have something that I know works great, I can utilize that That maybe I just need something right now on the fly You can hit resources within this drawer, it will then provide you with suggested resources that are specifically aligned to that skill So whether it be videos that can be hours from Edmentum or other videos that we found that really support that skill, we can also look at worksheets that we can provide as well as lesson ideas Maybe I’ve got more than just Kasim that’s needing some help with this skill So I can pull this up, it’s gonna be your traditional type of lesson plan This is great for teachers or maybe your art or your elective teachers are coming in and helping support with those intervention times This sows them step by step, how to target different learning modalities It tells them more math materials needed, procedures, independent, closing, as well as options for advanced learners, struggling learners Give me some extension activities that I can work with my advanced learners maybe, or that maybe my struggling learners can work with to continue practicing as well as ELL teaching tips So we’re able to provide these resources for the teachers right then when they can have that intervention time with the student And be able to support your schools and support your teachers So whether it be a resource from here or one that they’ve used for years, that yield great mastery,

it is just available for you as they move forward I also know that we say this a lot, that doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different outcome will drive you mad So our Exact Path system will provide a remediation lesson or a foundational lesson is what I like to call it, to build this before they present that symbolize in addition, subtraction to that student again So because we have this building block, you can see here as I move over, it has assigned Kasim an addition and subtraction properties and a lower grade level So now he must visit this and he must work with that first, before he is then assigned an available alternate learning path for this symbolizing addition and subtraction Remember, we wanna build those skills, we wanna provide that foundation, we wanna work and support the teacher as they work through those intervention pieces And so we’re providing that for you before they go back and try to reattach that skill Here, the X’s mean that that student has failed twice This point is when we come to our students where we’re using those resources Because the learning path resources that we’ve provided or that foundational skill, they’re not quite getting it So now we need to kind of go back into that bank, into those resources How can we use these to work with the students, to help them go back and get those first round lesson scores up or get those progress checks up It just provides you that background, that history for the students So we’re able to do that all in this one system And we can move this up and we can show you how our different skills are aligned We can see that they are separated into domains If at any time you wanna see kind of a vertical progression, we can always filter that out through a domain and you can see how your skills will mature and go through that vertical progression I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not, but as I was going through the lesson plans, here are the less than knowledge map and I’m gonna end filter this so we can see all the domains And this is presented in language arts as well as reading So you’ll see the same knowledge map in all this, the resources and things like that will be provided to you as well in all three of those different content levels These are our basic academic skills that will help us as our students are successful with these skills They’re able to then take that and apply it to our science content areas, our social studies content areas in our elective areas Sorry, and I got a little distracted, I apologize for that But here, you’ll see this gray, we talked a little bit and I said, “Hey, maybe we can see here “and we can see this gray piece “What does that mean, Angela?” Well, that means that I’ve taken the learner and they walked into my classroom, they enrolled today or they virtually enrolled and they’re ready to go I need to get them started So what I can do is I can assign them a grade level path Zach is in sixth grade, we’re gonna assign him a grade level path, which means, and I don’t wanna make anybody sick as I scroll through, but it means he’s gonna start with those first four skills of sixth grade And these first four skills of sixth grade, he will then work through He’ll get that learning path resource, he’ll go through the lesson, he’ll go through the mastery quiz and he’ll work through those If he does well, the path, the learning path will adjust for him and it will push him forward into higher skills If he does not do well and show some deficits there, the path will adjust and start to assign him foundational skills to help him build that So that will allow us to get our kids started without diagnostic They will be able to get in there, and get started and kind of start showing their work and their progress and how they’re working towards growth within and where they’re at So we’re excited to offer that option as well for you guys So here, that’s our learning path Our, again, K through 12 progression, you’re gonna be able to see as the skills are, you can always click on the darker, you’ll see that standard coverage, how it relates, how it’s connected, you’ll see available resources that are ready to use for you right then And you’ll be able to see how the students are doing on their progress checks, what that progress check look like for that student and the learning path Students are able to work through these at any time They can stop and start if they need to, by checking if that’s a need for the student When they do that, they’re able to come back and start where they left off

Their work will not be lost, they will not have to start over at the beginning So that’s our learning path that’s individualized It’s created for the student, whether it be for a diagnostic or whether it be a grade level path that we assign It is there for them to start working day one and to really meet their individual needs But as a teacher, I’ve got some things that I wanna assign or that we’re working on So we can look through this content search The content search allows us to either search by Oklahoma Academic Standard or by skill level, depending on where your focus is that day, or depending on what it is that you’re wanting to teach So let’s look, we’ll look at reading here Let’s see Let’s look at second grade, we’ll look at language and vocabulary and then we’ll hit go So then you’ll see within this, you can also go here to the school level, I’ve just gone at the domain, but you’ll see a listing of everything that is provided within this platform for the student to work with Like the first was context clues, this skill is connection between words You’ll be able to see these resources, you can preview them from here, you can assign them from here It allows you to assign things above and beyond that student’s learning path As I move up a little bit, you might say, “Angela, that’s great for my lower levels, “but what about my higher levels?” Well, before we get there, I wanna show you just a little bit of an age appropriate grade content style So say I’ve got a second grader who needs context clues That’s great, lemme share my film I’m gonna pull up this lesson for you so you can see what this lesson does for context clues Now, remember this is a K through fifth grade content style So as we see here, you’re gonna see characters that the students can get to know – [Narrator] Granny is reading a book to Sten and Stig – Are you boys ready to learn about jobs people do? – [Sten and Stig] Yeah – Okay, would you like me to read about police officers? – Well, we just learned about them at school Can we learn about detectives? – So these characters are presented throughout the lessons for our younger students There are a group of characters, it’s not just these same two And to prevent fatigue going through the work it’s different atmospheres that they’re in One is at a farmer’s market, one is at a school, a library, at grandma’s house So they’re gonna be able to be familiar with the characters, but see different opportunities for them to learn with different contexts, different skills and domains that they’re gonna work through We’re also gonna be able to provide translation support We have 19 different languages that can be translated into It’s a text by text side by side comparison for our students They have that support as they’re immersed into that English language You’ve also already has the opportunity to have words read aloud to them, they can paste that and work through With our younger grades, that’s gonna be read to them, they’re gonna be able to see that So that’s gonna be available anyways, but it is just a handy dandy tool to have for our text to speech and our translations for those students to get that even playing field as they move forward with their growth and their learning But maybe I’m gonna click out of here, maybe I’ve got a student that is an eighth grader or older that needs that context clues second grade, but there is no way that they’re gonna be excited about looking at a cartoon or an edutainment type of approach, right? But they still need to learn those resources This is where that six through 12th grade content style comes in We wanna make sure that our students are focused and they are engaged and they want to learn and what to grow From our research, we’ve shown that they want to see people that they can relate to We know that that keeps them engaged, we want them to be using it, manipulating the system or working through So as we look through our context clues here in our tutorial, they’ll see what’s presented to them, they’ll know what their expectations are They’ll be able to see pictures they can relate to a little bit better Here, we’ve got an editor at a magazine It’s a real world example that they can be interested in I’m in as a student or excuse me, I’m in as a teacher, I have super powers, I can go wherever, but a student would have to work through these sequentially This would not highlight or let them click until they’ve worked through this slide Well, they’re able to see different pieces of text, but it’s not gonna be scrolling, scrolling They’re not gonna be able to log in, start the lesson and walk off They are gonna have to go through, manipulate this work through, see manageable pieces of text We can see the slight narration

if you’re at the eighth grade level, you need help with context clues, there’s probably gonna be some reading deficits there as well And so that they need that read to them, they can have it read the full slide They can do the click to speech The click to speech allows the readers to not only have that read to them what they choose, but also- – [Narrator] Here is the passage I told you about – Let them see those words highlighted as they’re read aloud to them and you’ll also have your translation tool For our older students, our ELL students that might have background and be able to read in their home language They can see the support here as their side-by-side texts comparison They’re able to have that support if there’s something that they don’t understand in this reading, as it’s read aloud to them, or as they’re reading it Here, I know we talked about manual pieces of texts We’re able to manipulate the system or through step by step, be able to show different pieces in manageable, small chunks, not having to scroll down, down, down before they get through You’re also gonna see visuals that they can work with using these context clues The lessons themselves, they, the number of slides that are presented, we usually work through that takes about that many minutes on average, to complete the lessons as they work through these, depending on the prior knowledge that they have or their reading abilities that they have, that’s gonna be where the differences, the variation is in the lessons that they complete We also have the highlighter tools and as well as some other resources that can be provided, anything that the student does, they can step out of this, they can save and exit It will be there provided for them when they come back in So we don’t want them to have to start over All right, so that would be our content search That’s gonna show you the different ways to present for the K through fifth age appropriate, and then let’s go and we can look and pull up a higher grade level So we’ll pull 11th grade, let’s pull reading literature and we’ll pull, let’s do settings and we’ll hit go Here you’ll see the different provisions or the resources that we provided your skill statements, your standards that they can relate to you or attached to you And then you’ll be able to pull up a lesson Now, obviously, if you’ve got a K through fifth grade, you’re doing 11th grade content, it’s not necessarily gonna vary too much in their presentation So here you can see there’s 28 slides, so we’d say about 28 minutes is average to get through this tutorial depending on the student themselves So as we’re working through here, you’re gonna see elements of Gothic style different pictures to relate Here’s the video that will steps them through Gothic literature and the tradition and the start of it From here, we can also see that any texts that is related to Exact Path is included within the system Students are not gonna have to subscribe to anything You’re not gonna have to buy additional text at all Everything that they need to work through these Exact Path lessons is provided in the system for them There’s also a guided notes piece for our students This allows them to keep track and really keep moving forward and making sure that they’re getting the pieces that are important throughout their lessons They’re able to fill it out electronically or they can print it off and they can do paper pencil So this allows them to see the specific pieces of information that they need to make sure they are capturing A lot of the time we’ll get through and students are like, I didn’t do so well, I’m not sure why As a teacher, we can step in our intervention time We can have that conversation to say, “Hey, let me see your guided notes “Let me see how you did with those.” And they’re like, “Guided notes? “No, no, no, I don’t know what those are.” Well, let’s go back and let’s view that This helps us with our students also that just like to click, click, click, click, click, click, click, and get through We wanna make sure that they’re getting the pieces that they have, and that they are again getting what’s important throughout the lesson so they can provide that And as we work through, you’ll see there’s different opportunities in the tutorial for them to have constructed based responses Once they submit this, they’ll see a sample answer Remember this is the tutorial piece, so we want them working and we want them to see sample answers so they can match, am I understanding, am I getting what the lesson is presenting to me? Am I able to work through that? As well as a self evaluation piece So you can be able to see,

the student is taking ownership of that learning They’re able to say, on a one to five, where am I at? Really take that reflective piece that we want them to, as they formatively assessed through the lessons You’ll see just some different modes of modality or excuse me, modes of media that we present through as they work through And you can see here not only are the resources presented here, but they’re also just as a link, so we can click this and that would come up for the students, so they would be able to have that That would be our skills level, different lesson types, as we view through that there are also an opportunity or opportunities I should say for us to use grouping features So I equate this also to when I was a teacher, I would work with my test data I would work with my observations in my class, and then I would work with any kind of other data that I might have Interim assessments, state assessments, that’s, things like that And I would group my students according to their needs That would take me awhile, but I knew that it was best and it was beneficial for my students So I would use that prep work Here, what we try to do is we try to eliminate some of that prep work for your educators And so, as we move through here, once they take that diagnostic, or once we place them on that learning path, we know that once they start working and making progression through that, that original data is going to change We want real time data So as we’re looking and pulling through this, I want to pull and pull from my knowledge map I wanna see how my students are doing specifically to that skill status on that knowledge map Then I can come here and hit auto group students, it will group my students, according to how they’re doing I’m able to view these are my four kids that assessed above already for two-step real world problems These are my two kids they’re struggling right now These are not even ready to get to two separable problems, their learning path, they’re not even there They need to do it, they haven’t assessed above, but they’re not ready yet And this is Zach he’s my, I placed him on that grade level, right? So it’s given me different groups to work with, that maybe I’m in a virtual setting and I’ve got 45 minute lesson, or I’ve got 45 minute time with my students I want to separate that time, 45 minutes, I’m gonna separate it into 15, 15, 15 chucks I want everybody to be working on that 45 minutes, but me actually working with them and communicating with them, we’re gonna look at 15 minute chunks, just like we would in a brick and mortar station type of rotation So I can take that, I’ve got the flexibility, I can push them over into this group So now I have my three 15 minute groups For these guys, I might come in and I might assign them an enrichment activity Or I might say, “You guys just keep working “on your learning path today, “we’re gonna come back and visit to see your progress.” These guys, they’re struggling a little bit, I’m gonna come in, I’m gonna create an assignment I want them to work on a video, I want them to watch a video So we’ll look at two separable problems Here’s the content that’s provided to me and then I can come in and I can assign that to them This is gonna be above and beyond their learning path So this is a resource for me as I’m teaching So I’m assigning to these students So what they’ll do is they will now I will say, watch the assigned video so I can do that in my notes Then they’re gonna start with their video, they’re gonna continue on their learning path And then this guy, I’m gonna work with them on something, a foundational skill, right? So I can hit create assignment, I can come through Maybe I’m gonna go down to a second grade level and we’re just gonna look at real world problems We’re gonna open that resource content, and we’re gonna pull, “Hey, let’s do word problems.” Pull that or hit next, and then assign it, so this’ll be above and beyond We can work that resource together We can review or preview a video together Then we can have a discussion piece so we can talk about it Again, and identifying, process content context error where are my student’s misconceptions occurring And then I’m able to have resources readily available that I can work with them through Once I’ve got these guys started, they can work on that path They can either work on their learning path, again, work on some foundational skills, or they can work on something that I’ve assigned here I can come visit with these guys We can talk about the video, we can have that communication piece, that dialogue, the support between the peers and the teacher, as we move forward to making sure

that they’re no longer struggling and they can move forward And then I check in with these babies and I say, “Hey, how are you guys doing, “what’s your progress? “I see that you’re doing great here, “you’re doing great here, what can I help you with?” So it’s just an easy way to kind of eliminate some of that prep work for your teachers So they’re whole heartedly when they come to their students, they’re fresh, they’re ready to go So that would be a way to the grouping tool It is available in all contents and it is also it can change like say next time we’re gonna look at measurement and data skills Maybe we’re gonna do that the next time we meet I can come through here and I can pull out how my students are doing and then I can auto group them again It will automatically group them I can see that the majority of my students are past it And then we’ve got Zach here and Kasim and Pawel, but they’re not ready yet We can, we work with them and I can spiral this skill maybe through warmups or things like that I’m not gonna necessarily have to take all the time to really focus on that skill or standard And I think this is a great important fact or piece because we know this coming year, we’re gonna have the same set of grade level standards, but we’re also gonna have additional, any kind of standard or skills that they missed in their preceding grade level, right? From that missing that nine weeks, that last nine weeks of instruction And so we’re really gonna need to focus on and use our time effective and efficiently So we’re able to meet the needs of our students And this is here when I click here, as I move forward, this is just a different way to assign and create a new assignment So if you’ve just having a grade level assignment, or you just want to maybe challenge some students that are ready to go, you can hit creating an assignment and assign them something that you think that they’re ready to experience and have exposure too Challenges that we see are time, can you spend 30 minutes in your math learning path this week? That is our research shows that that’s the beneficial spot That 30 minutes starts to show a benefit for our students and starts to show that growth And so maybe our challenges, can you do 30 minutes in math? Can you do 30 minutes in reading? Once you do that, you’re gonna get this sticker or maybe your challenge for your GT students are, can you get through four skills in the next two weeks, just giving those different motivation, different times, different pieces of challenges, assignments for those different students So that way they can work through that Exact Path is really a way for you to have, it’s more, I like to look at it as kind of a backbone or central nervous system where it is working constantly, it is constantly reassessing your students It is working on their progress, how they’re working through their skills in the background and connecting to your core instruction, supporting your core instruction, making sure that as you are presenting third grade level, ninth grade level material, that they are getting those foundational skills parallel as they move through the courses and as they move through the subject matter And I’m sure you guys are very familiar, that you can assume that I am a teacher, I am an educator, I’ve been in education for 20 years, ’cause I have talked for 45 minutes straight So I do appreciate your time and I do want to make sure that we’re getting everything, every piece of information to you So with this, I’m gonna kind of close out the demonstration piece and pass it over to Kia So we can look at working with how do you get involved or how do you get connected with the access for the server Okay, so I’m gonna pull up our slideshow and I will pull up our form that we work with And so let me pull here, there she is, here she comes – Yes I was just waiting for you (laughs) All right, thank you Thank you, Angela so much for that in depth look at Exact Path And we definitely hope that everyone is excited about this opportunity Exact Path is about making learning personable and personal So we wanna make sure that you are prepared to take advantage of this opportunity We all know that we’re experiencing some unprecedented times in education right now, and we’re not sure what changes will come in the fall and as the school year rolls out as a whole, and Atlanta, excuse me, Angela talked about that a little bit So we wanna be able to get all schools in Oklahoma started with taking advantage

of this valuable opportunity being provided free of charge by the State Department of Education So for districts who have not yet opted in, you’ll go to this link that’s been provided to you to sign up And it’s as simple as that If you take a look, the link is at the bottom of the screen I’ll ask Madison if she hasn’t already, to place that in the chat box By completing this form, you’re letting the State and Edmentum know that you would like your district to take advantage of Exact Path in your schools Simple as that, that’s step one For districts who have opted in already or will opt in today and moving forward, once you opt in, you’ll receive an email from our Edmentum team So going forward, those of you who have opted in, and those who will opt in today, you’ll receive that email from our team, that will take you, give you a link to the getting started page, and that’s where the magic happens Next step is you getting started Getting started website will walk you through setting up your account with your teachers and students And we’ve been intentional in developing a one stop shop that will help you and your instructional teams get up and running The site also provides step-by-step what needs to happen And so that just really makes it very easy for you The third step follows that will include additional professional learning to help prepare instructional leaders and teachers with this implementation We wanna make it as easy, as simple for you as possible And so we divided it into those three steps One, we have the form, complete that Two, in the next few days, for those of you who have already opted in And for those of you who will opt in today, you’ll get an outreach email from our Edmentum team that links you to the getting started website And then three, follow up in the next coming weeks, will be information around additional professional learning to help prepare your teachers for implementing Exact Path in your schools Now we have been, I’m gonna open it up because I wanna make sure that Madison has an opportunity to throw any questions out that have come up And we’ve received a ton of questions and these are all very valuable questions and valid questions And so we wanna make sure that we respond to what you’re needing to know So as a followup step to this webinar, we will be compiling those questions that don’t get answered today And probably some of those that get answered today as well in an FAQ and sharing that out so that we can make sure that we answer those questions that you have We don’t want a lack of understanding or a lack of knowledge to prevent you from taking advantage of this awesome opportunity So you can continue to put those questions in as I turn over to Madison and just know that we will get those answers over to you in the next coming days So Madison, are there any that you would like to specifically shoot out this way? – [Madison] Absolutely Let’s jump in and get started Like you said, Kia, I’ve been doing my best to answer some of the quick ones I can in chat, but I know that we have not, we’re just scratching the surface and getting those questions answered So there, let me bring through some of the top themes that we’re hearing There’s a number of questions about devices and what devices Exact Path can be used on Do you wanna address that one real quick, Angela? – Yeah, absolutely Exact Path is internet based It is mobile optimized, so it can be used on Chromebooks, it can be used on iPhones, it can be used on iPads, any type of smart device that you have – [Madison] Excellent We also received a few questions about Study Island as it compares to Exact Path And what may be are the key differences between Study Island and Exact Path – That’s a great question So the way I look at Study Island and Exact Path are they compliment each other Where Study Island is gonna provide us with standards, mastery, practice, exposure to technology, enhanced items on grade level standards that formative assessment piece of proficiency, Exact Path is more focused on an adaptive ability to meet the student where they’re at rather than is my student at proficiency for their grade level Exact Path says, “Hey, where are you at?” You need to identify that and then how can I help you grow Exact Path is gonna provide that instruction piece

and take it really down and allow the students to see the lesson and to really experience the lesson Whereas Study Island lessons that you’ll find are more of a, it assumes that the teacher has already instructed that, and it’s more of a refresher or just of, “Hey, I’m working on these skills “And I can’t quite remember what Ms. Smith said today.” So I can go back to that lesson and kind of review that say, “Oh yeah, that’s right.” So we’re Study Island is proficiency, standards, align, and working through just having that exposure Exact Path is discrete skill level, standard align, we just kind of break it down into skill levels and it takes them and meets them where they’re at and starts to help them do the growth piece – [Madison] That’s great And we can also have a number of other resources and even some success stories from customers that have used the two together So we can make sure that we include some of that for those that are still looking for more information – Thanks, Madison Yeah – [Madison] Awesome We have a number of different questions, I think people were excited to hear that about the integration within NWEA, integration with Star Can you just maybe touch on that one one more time and talk about, do we need use multiple assessments, right? How does the assessment piece work if you’re using one of those partners? – Okay So as you work with us, we are going to talk to you about the most efficient and effective way to get those individualized learning paths for your students So Edmentum will meet with you and your district team and decide if you’re utilizing NWEA map Let’s use those tests or those diagnostics to create those individualized paths If you’re using multiple, what’s gonna be our best method to view that Do we wanna do grade level placements? I mean, do we want to work with the Exact Path diagnostic? What’s gonna be most beneficial for your kids? I know a big worry is over assessing Coming from the State Assessment Office in Oklahoma, I know that that is a concern for a lot of our districts And so we don’t want to necessarily just test a test, right? We want to make sure that we are meeting the needs of our students and that we’re creating those individualized learning paths for them And so we don’t wanna over assess So really my roundabout answer to that question is, working with Edmentum team your district and us, we will work with you to make sure that we put the best possible plan forward – Angela, just to add one thing to that, that doesn’t preclude you from working within Exact Path before that decision is made So for individuals who are concerned about over assessment, or are not sure if they want to utilize NWEA, et cetera, the learning paths will still be developed based on the work that the students are doing So that’s not something that you have to have in place, put in place, it is something that you can decide upon later and have your students get started when you get them enrolled into the system or uploaded into the system Those learning paths are there no matter what, based on their work – Okay, thanks Kia Yeah – [Madison] Great Related to assessments and this question is about the Exact Path diagnostic How long does it take? – So for our littles, it’s about 20 minutes average, 20, 25 minute average, that would be our K through second, third, and then really depending ’cause it’s computer adaptive, right? So it’s going to pinpoint where they’re at For our older students, it’s about 40 to 45 minute average It is available to do the (loud buzzing) piece if needed They can take it into multiple sessions, but again, remember it is computer adaptive so it’s gonna adjust to how the student is answering the question So I would say average K through third is about 20, 25 minutes and then for older students, is about 40, 45 minutes – [Madison] Perfect We also have some questions around our single sign on integrations Angela, if you want to address what we have now, and then of course the two that will be introduced later this summer – Great And so we do partner with Clever and ClassLink We can single sign on, not a problem, we can work with that and partner with you and make sure that we get our IT people hooked up with your IT people and get that done We are also working with Google to make sure that in the fall that we are integrating with them, Madison, remind me who the other one is – [Madison] Microsoft

– Microsoft, thank you very much So we’re working with those two to make sure that in the fall we’ll be able to infinite that as well Wonderful, thank you – And just to add to that, when you sign up and you do receive your access to the getting started page, there is a link there that will guide you through that part if you are integrating with Clever – [Madison] Perfect We have a few folks asking about K-1 standards and is K-1 tied to common core or Oklahoma standards – Your K-1 is gonna be tied to your Oklahoma Academic Standards We are a K through 12 progression, so all of our skills will get in that K through 12 range And then with each of those skills, we tie it back to that Oklahoma Academic Standard And you can see that whether you content search by standard or whether you open that drawer up, when we saw on the knowledge map, you can see that standard alignment there – [Madison] Wonderful – Madison, let me interrupt just for a second Aaron, I just wanted to see if given the time, if we’re okay with going forward, or would you like us to wrap it up and just talk about how we’ll do some outreach from this point I wanna be cognizant – [Aaron] To respect everyone’s time if we could just kind of wrap this up currently And then what we’ll do is find a way to answer any future questions that they may have I am again putting my email in the chat box, if anyone has any questions that were not directly answered or have any issues with signing up, I’ve seen some of these coming through Just feel free to email me and I will again put my email in the chat box and I will ensure that I forward those questions onto Edmentum so that we can get those answered for you Again, SDE wants to support every district and in your decisions and provide that support in any way we can So we’ll make sure that we get you the answers, we’ll make sure that we get you signed up and provide that link to those answers the best that we can – Thank you so much for that and thank you for this time today We know that it’s definitely at the hour We wanna be respectful of everyone’s time, but we also know that there’s a lot of positive energy and questions out there that we want to make sure that we get to So just as a reminder, interest, opt-in, go to that form Madison has placed the link there for you to go to the form and sign up That’s your opt in, that gets you started And then from there lemme clarify the steps just a little bit before we sign off, you will receive an email from us There’s two parts to that, because we do have to have the district sign off and then we will send the welcome letter out to you, which gets you into the getting started page In conjunction with SDE we will make sure that these questions that have been placed in the chat are responded to and get those over to you guys so that you have those answers We might have to schedule some followup webinars that we host on our side, but we’ll work very closely with the State Department to make sure you get the answers you need and that we all are on the same page and we can get started immediately – I would just like to thank everyone for joining in today’s webinar Again, just had a quick reminder Thank you to Edmentum and the presenters today, I think y’all did an outstanding job of answering as many questions as we could during that hour A reminder, I have put my email address, Aaron.Espolt@sde.ok.gov into the chat box Feel free to email me directly, and I will try to assist you in any way and support you in any way possible Additionally, this will be posted to SDE’s YouTube page So give us a little time to get that turned around and we will get that posted there as quickly as possible for if anyone missed this today, or if you have any other teachers or others that would be useful for them to view this, feel free to direct them there We’ll continue supporting you and giving you as many answers as we possibly can As we know the work that you’re doing, the decisions that you’re trying to make currently are just huge and scope And so we want to provide that, ease that any way we can So thank you for today that will conclude our webinar Thank you to Edmentum for your time and thank you to all of our attendees for your time as well Please email me if you have any further questions Thank you
