SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., July 8, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Edgenuity, a leading provider of online curriculum and instructional services for the K–12 market, today announced that its MyPath offering has earned the Research-Based Design product certification from Digital Promise. The Digital Promise Research-Based Design certification provides third-party verification to educators and families that an educational technology product is grounded in credible learning sciences research.
Edgenuity MyPath serves as an online intervention program for middle and high school students. The solution is designed to meet students where they are, providing age-appropriate content for all secondary students, even if their skill level is currently far below their grade level. MyPath consists of three elements crucial to a successful intervention that provide an effective learning experience: assessment, instruction, and progress monitoring.
"Approximately two-thirds of U.S. students are not proficient in reading or math," said Sari Factor, CEO of Edgenuity. "We passionately believe that struggling students need to receive accessible, scientifically based instruction to achieve their academic potential."
The Research-Based Design product certification uses a competency-based learning framework, developed in consultation with Digital Promise's Learner Variability Project advisory board, expert researchers in the Learning Sciences field, and dozens of educators across the United States.
