Pathways of Progress


Pathways of Progress provides an evaluation of individual student growth or improvement over time, compared to other students with the same level of initial skills. This innovative approach empowers educators to set goals that are meaningful, ambitious, and attainable. It increases the precision with which progress is evaluated at the student and classroom levels. Pathways of Progress, when combined with the Acadience Reading K-6 benchmark goals and Reading Composite Score, provides teachers with a frame of reference for examining where their students are, specifying where they need to get to, and evaluating whether they are making adequate progress.

Pathways of Progress is available for Acadience Reading K-6 in Dynamic Measurement Group's Acadience Data Management service and Amplify's mCLASS reporting service. For more information about Pathways of Progress and Acadience Data Management, contact us at info@acadiencelearning.org.


Pathways of Progress is a research-based tool for:


  • establishing individual student progress monitoring goals
  • evaluating individual student progress and rate of growth
  • evaluating the effectiveness of support at the classroom, school, or district level
