Students in classrooms today are at varying levels of competency and mastery of grade level concepts. The Odysseyware® robust assessment, content, instruction, and progress monitoring supports and features provide extra help and resources for all students to become successful.
Prescriptive Learning PathsUsing the Odysseyware diagnostic-prescriptive mode, students are assigned a pretest for each unit within SPARK, a rich set of assessment tools and instructional materials for K-8 math and English Language Arts, which focuses on a single skill. If a student fails the pretest, instructional content is assigned to the student, followed by a post-test. Teachers also have the option to assign additional practice material.
Prescriptive Learning Paths in SPARK
English Language LearnersOdysseyware provides language acquisition supports that give ELL students opportunities to listen, speak, read, and write in each content area with unique scaffolds to support social and academic language development, such as text-to-speech audio support, translation into 23 different languages, and vocabulary and reference support.
Standards-Based ReportingTeachers receive real-time feedback on student performance of specific standards for ELA and math skills. Based on this data, teachers can assess whether a student is struggling and actively remediate with targeted support.
Research-based Lesson DesignBuilt on the Gradual Release of Responsibility model, students follow a scaffolded “I do, we do, you do” approach. Odysseyware lessons include explicit direct instruction and modeling, guided practice with scaffolds, and independent practice.
Scaffolded Instructional SupportsStudents have a variety of embedded instructional supports at their fingertips in every lesson, including literacy, fluency, and audio scaffolds. They also receive immediate feedback throughout lessons and assessments to guide their learning.
NWEA and Odysseyware have teamed up to enhance a district’s capacity to take action on rich MAP® GrowthTM assessment data and help students grow further, faster.
If you are using, or planning to use, NWEA MAP Growth assessments, you can now import those test results directly into Odysseyware to generate individualized learning paths using Odysseyware aligned curriculum lessons that support each student’s area of instructional need, whether for remediation or enrichment.
