Pathblazer is web-based math and ELA curriculum designed around animated video lessons for students in K - 8 who are working below grade level. The program sets students on individual learning paths through both built-in and external diagnostics. Schools and districts can purchase the product via individual licenses, annual site licenses or a perpetual unlimited site license with volume-based discounts available for larger sites. As of August 2015, over 50,000 students, teachers and school leaders are using Pathblazer in over 1,000 schools.
Students begin by taking an initial diagnostic to determine their specific skill and concept gaps. Teachers can also incorporate students’ results from STAR, MAP and Scantron Performance Series assessments. Students are then assigned a personalized learning path that aligns to their highest level of performance. Students engage in scaffolded lessons designed around engaging videos, animation and audio. As students get questions wrong, they review the misunderstood concepts through a different medium than they were originally presented. Teachers receive real-time data on student progress and comprehension that they can use to inform instructional decisions.
The curriculum and student data are accessible through any modern web-browser.
Schools and districts can purchase the entire Pathblazer curriculum for a school or district for an annual license of around $10,700 or a perpetual unlimited user license for a one-time purchase of around $25,000. These prices are estimated for a medium sized school in the lowest tier (one to four sites), and volume based discounts are available for larger sites. There are also annual individual user licenses available that range from around $38 - $75 per student depending on the number of licenses purchased.
