Teacher OverviewThe purpose of this document is to help you, the teacher, with thefundamentals of Pathblazer. Ultimately, we know this tool will be mostsuccessful if it makes your life easier with regard to creating differentiatedinstruction, based on the TEKS objectives, and with being able to reportproficiency gaps in the form of diagnostic feedback. Other than someweekly Progress Monitoring and daily classroom motivation andmanagement, Pathblazer runs itself. Students will be given a unique LearningPath which will progress, adjust, and provide support for each student’sdifferentiated learning experience. Let us help you meet each student’sindividual needs and free you to teach to your strengths!Logging-inSimply navigate to: www.thelearningodyssey.com.You’re school administrator will have communicated your User Name,Password, and School code.You may be asked, by your browser, to allow Pop-ups. Your answer is YES.The students will have the exact same log-in screen when they navigate towww.thelearningodyssey.com.3

Building your ClassThis is where you will be able to create your own Class Folder and addstudents from the entire list of students from your school.First click on the ‘MyStudents’ tab and createyour class folder and giveit a name.1. Click on My Studentsa. Click Newb. Click ClassThen fill in the appropriate details and add yourself and any other teachers, ifyou happen to teamteach.2. Complete Class Detailsa. Give your class a nameb. Choose your GradeLevel (optional)c. Choose your Subject(optional)d. Add Teachers, if youwant to share data orTeam Teach (optional)e. When finished SaveNext you will need to findyour students from the “MySchool” list of all students.4

Narrowing will allow you to view a certain grade level to make your searcheasier.3. Under My Schoola. Click on Studentsb. Narrow by Attributes,which will help if youhave many studentsin your school.c. Choose the Graded. Click NarrowFinally, choose thestudents you wish to haveseated in your virtualclassroom and add themto your Class.4. The Actions tab willhave a number next toit; this shows you thenumber of studentschosena. Click Add to Classb. Find the right classc. Click AddIf ever a new student enters your school, you would simply follow the samesteps and add the new student. This step is important because future actions,like creating an assignment (if you choose to do so) or creating a ProgressMonitoring Report will require first a Class to exist.5

Navigating the Teacher DashboardThe Teacher Dashboard is the home screen for each teacher, and theprimary teacher tool for monitoring student progress through learningpaths. The Student Status section on the left side displays student averageactivity scores. Click on the blue words “Last 30 Days” to modify the timeframe for average scores to yesterday, the last 7 days, the year to date, etc.The Dashboard provides a "temperature check" for students in your class. Itonly updates once every 24 hours.RED 0-59% overall avgYELLOW 60-69% overall avgStudent Status Ranks studentsfrom low to high Adjustable dateranges Visibility on allassignments Click on studentnames for moredetailsGREEN 70% andup overall avgAt a Glance Shows progress onassignments Color codes studentperformance Visibility on allassignments Click on pie chart formore details6

Class ProgressClass Progress, like the teacher dashboard, is another in-line teacher tool,with several features for exploring a student's individual progress or the class'sprogress on an assignment as a whole.Class Progress provides me with: Class visibility on an assignmentIndividual visibility on anassignmentIndividual progress on quizzesQuiz item analysisI can use class progress to: Document progress for individualassignmentsDocument progress for commonassignments/assessmentsPrint out quiz resultsConference with individualstudentsConference with parentsViewing progress on a diagnosticTo see how a student is progressing on a specific diagnostic assignment,Class Progress provides quick and easy access.Navigate into the Courses & Assignments menu. Then navigate into ClassProgress.7

Expand your class list and click on the student you want to view.Locate the diagnostic for which you want to view the details. Click Details.Scroll through the list in the bottom pane, or click the Printable Versionbutton.TIP: The Printable Version button provides a pop-up version which you canexpand to whole screen. Not only can you print, but you can use this view toconference with individual students.8

On the printable version a teacher can view all of the completed activities inan assignment, with the following details: activity title, activity #, date andtime completed, score.When/if a student repeats an activity and/or quiz, the teacher can see itlisted in the details (if a student types in the code it will not show on thisscreen).Activities are listed in order of completion with the newest/most recenttypically at the bottom.9

Viewing progress on a quizWhen looking at the details of an assignment in Class Progress, you will seehyperlinked scores. Click on these to view an item analysis of that particularquiz for just that student.This view is handy for individual student conferencing and identifying wherestudents still have misconceptions.It is also printable for those who would like to send home and communicatewith Mom and Dad.10

Reviewing activitiesAs you are reviewing the details of an assignment, you may wonder aboutthe instructional activities, or Digital Learning Objects (DLO's), that thestudents are actually working on.When viewing the details, you will notice some activity titles are hyperlinked.Clicking on these allows the teacher to view the activity in teacher previewmode (you can forward through the activity, while students cannot).This is another great strategy for individual student conferencing - especially ifthe student didn't master a quiz the second time.11

Student PortfolioStudents self-evaluateThe student portfolio serves primarily as a student self-monitoring tool,allowing students to see their scores, responses on quizzes, assignmentprogress, and even run reports. Partnered with the student log, students aremore likely to stay organized and on track for success.For a refresher on student usage of the student portfolio, refer to the studentexperience.Teacher's assistantMany teachers report great success using the student portfolio as a dailytool. Let's take a closer look.Exit TicketsBefore leaving class, or changing stations, leave a fewminutes for students to add their activities to their studentlog.While they are writing everything down, walk around theroom (or area). Don't spend too much time at theirindividual computers. Focus on the Status Icons. How manyare complete and how many are incomplete? Make anote, mental or otherwise, and investigate further whenyou have time.12

Proximity ToolWe have all had students who exhibit difficulties staying on task occasionally.The student portfolio is a quick and easy way to engage the student aboutbeing off task, and an even easier way to redirect them back to the task athand.TIP: Develop a quiet signal that lets students know they should open theirportfolio. This is especially useful during blended learning rotations.Weekly ReportingWe have heard many teachers expressfrustration about not having enoughtime to generate weekly progressreports. We don't disagree, and thegreat news is - students can run theirown reports.Pick a day of the week, and havestudents check their own progress. Theycan cross check the student progressreport with their student log.If you have time, and want to provide this option, you can also allow studentsto click on the activity titles to repeat select activities.As you use Pathblazer more, begin using the student progress report forindividual student conferences and even student-led conferencing.13

View Student Screener Results1. Navigate to the Reports Tab.2. Choose Pathblazer Reports on the left side under Compass LearningReports3. Click on Run next to the Default Pathblazer Screener Results ReportTIP: Ensure Pop-up Windows are not being blocked or the report will notbe visible.132Understanding Student Proficiency Levels Students who show “0” as their proficiency placed at a Kindergartenlevel. Students who show “-1” as their proficiency placed at a KindergartenReadiness level (Pre-K) Students who show “1-“ or “3-“ as their proficiency scored at the lowestgrade level available in their screener. They will be assigned 1st or 3rdgrade learning paths, but may be working at an even lower grade level. Remember, most students place in a proficiency below their currentgrade level. This is expected and the proficiency level is simply used toplace students in the correct diagnostic assessment to further assessstudent skill mastery.14

How It Works: Understanding the Pathblazer ScreenerResultsGabriela completes the Pathblazer Screener during her first week of 7thgrade. The Screener Results Report shows that Gabriela has a proficiencylevel of 6th grade. Gabriela hasn’t mastered all of the 7th grade standardsyet, so her proficiency level is still at 6th grade.She completes the Diagnostic Assessment, which shows that she has a fewgaps in her 6th grade standards - likely due to summer retentionissues. Gabriela quickly completes the learning paths for her gapstandards and moves on to working on 7th grade learning paths.The Pathblazer Screener assesses students based on full mastery of the powerstandards for a given proficiency level. If a student is at the beginning ofseventh grade, for instance, he or she is unlikely to show mastery of theseventh grade standards, for which he or she has not yet receivedinstruction. Therefore, the student will receive the proficiency level 6 screener.The failsafe on the level 6 screener will place a student back into level 7 if heor she gets all the level 6 questions correct. Whenstudents place in a proficiency level, they havenot answered all of the questions (6-8) correctly forthat screener level.If the student goes on to take the proficiency level6 diagnostic and he or she is legitimately on gradelevel, the result will be that only a few standardsneed re-teaching. The student will receive only theinstruction he or she needs and will skip all of themastered standards. In this scenario, the studentwill quickly accelerate to proficiency level 7 uponcompleting a few gap standards. Teachers canoverride a student’s placement and manuallyassign an easier or harder learning path as needed.The screener questions were designed to reflect the rigor of the recentstandards and might be challenging to students for this reason. The screeneruses a small number of questions to place students in the correct in-depthdiagnostic assessment. As students complete the Compass Learningcurriculum, they will have repeated exposure to a similar rigor of instructionand question types, scaffolding success on high-stakes assessments.15
