Grades with arrows/buttons)

*High Level students to move on content not exposed to yet *Only a year of research (16-17) *Entrepreneurship (creating tools by non-educators) Student Responses z - Bored repeating skill Excitement when completed a level It is kinda fun. I like the reading part. The reason I like the reading part is because I like reading. -1st Grade Student I do not like it is really slow and has really easy questions that I sometime get wrong because I dont see the

correct button. -1st Grade Student Standardized Test Programs - Does Exact Path seem to teach to the MAP Test? - Are more years of research needed? Thematics z "This program differs from others in that everything is personalized. Every day, my students get 30 minutes of instruction time that is personalized to what they need. (MarketWatch, Inc., 2019, Paragraph 5) -Kacy Meulemans- 4th grade teacher at Wrightstown Elementary School in Wisconsin. When learners learn a new skill set/strategy, they need to practice it over and over in varied contexts in order to make it operate at an almost unconscious routinized level. Then they are really good at it. But they are also in danger of resting on their laurels and learning nothing new. At this point, a good game throws a problem at the

player where the routinized skill set/strategy wont work. This forces the player to think consciously again about skills that have become unconscious, taken-for-granted, and routine. The player must integrate his or her old skills with new ones, forming a new and higher skill set/strategy. (Gee, 2004, Pg. 65) - James Paul Gee Edmentums Exact Path provides richly varied online instruction supported by a powerful diagnostic/prescriptive system that helps teachers effectively monitor and guide student progress. (ISTE, 2019, Paragraph 5) - ISTE Review Report Corporations are master manipulators and hire professional manipulators and propagandists in the public relations, advertising, and influence industries to achieve their aims.
