Pathblazer Reading and Math Intervention Now Available for Students in Grades K-2

We've added a new screener designed for students in grades K-2 to Pathblazer Elementary Reading and Math. The screener includes a number of features designed to support early elementary students, including audio and pictures for question stems and answer choices.

New Kindergarten Readiness packages for reading and math are now available in Pathblazer. Following the screener, students who are missing skills foundational to Kindergarten will receive these assignments to help them prepare for their work in Kindergarten.

Pathblazer Automatic Assignments

Pathblazer students in grades K-8 will now receive automatic assignments based on their proficiency level after they complete their screener.
