Using student tools in MyPath

MyPath offers accommodations and tools to support students during their learning path. Certain tools are available within specific lessons, as needed. Additionally, there are tools that can be enabled in the student profile settings, granting access to those tools throughout the platform. These tools can be found at the bottom of the screen in the toolbar. They may be available during Mastery Checks or within individual lessons, providing students with additional assistance and resources as they progress through their educational content.

 Note

The availability of tools within MyPath is tied to the lessons, not a student's enrollment grade. Therefore, even if a student is enrolled in a higher grade level learning path, they will receive lessons from that specific grade level. Consequently, the tools associated with the corresponding grade level will be available to the student. For example, a Grade 5 student in a Grade 7 learning path will receive Grade 7 lessons and have access to the tools specifically designed for the Grade 7 lessons.
