The Pathblazer Progress Monitoring Report shows objective-level detail on the learning paths assigned to students in Pathblazer, providing visibility into how students are progressing through their learning paths. The report includes details on:
- how students are performing on each of the specific activities in a learning path
- pre-test and post-test scores
- the number of activities completed and the time students spent on each task.
The right side of the report provides a visual pie graph summarizing performance data for the student, giving you a quick snapshot of the number of standards mastered, the standards for which the student may need remediation, and the standards that have been remediated. The report is generated in spreadsheet format.
To configure this report, click Reports, then click Patblazer Reports under "Compass Learning Reports." A list of Pathblazer reports appears in the center pane. Click the Settings link in the "Default Pathblazer Progress Monitoring Report" row.
The table below lists the settings you will encounter as you set up your report.
Report Name: Either use the default name for the report that appears in this field, or provide a unique name (you may want to create a unique name if you plan to save the settings you configure as a new report template).
Repeated Activities: This setting gives you options for how to include scores for activities that students repeated.
- Use average score calculates the student's average score for repeated activities and uses that score.
- Use highest score includes only the student's highest score for the activity.
- Drop lowest score drops the lowest score the student reached on the activity, but all other scores (from second lowest to highest).
- Use most recent score uses only the score from the most recent time the student completed the activity.

Sample Progress Monitoring Report
The following Progress Monitoring report shows information on the progress of a student working on a learning path in the Pathblazer Math curriculum. The top section shows the student's name and subject, and indicates which Diagnostic assignment the student is working on. The lower sections of the report provide details for the students progress on each activity. Note that both the table on the left side of the report and the pie chart on the right side of the report highlight, in orange, the specific standards for which this student needs remediation (that is, standards for which the student is scoring below 70%).
