Changing the Learning Path grade placement for a student

Use this page to edit the Learning Path grade placement of a student. 

If a student has completed their learning path, learn more about the best practices before changing the placement of a student.

Students who are not challenged by the current learning path can be manually placed in a higher one by an educator. When a student placement is changed to a higher grade, MyPath will assign lessons of the new placement

Educators must manually change a student's placement to a lower grade if they if the student has difficulty passing the lesson. MyPath will also readjust that student’s learning path. 

In our new program, we are taking a slightly different approach from the current 10-point arbitrary “RIT Range” approach that Pathblazer has today. There is not a strong instructional reason why each range should span 10 points. So, in our new program, we align overall Goal/Instructional Area RIT scores to grade-level expectations in each instructional area and then place students accordingly. This makes it easy for teachers to see how the NWEA scores result in instructional-level placement in our curriculum.
