Coming Soon! Get ready for the 2023 Exact Path contest, opening from October 9 through November 17. Tell us about your Exact Path fall contest plans for your chance to win one of three $500 gift cards.

STEP 1

Decide who will compete.

Are you organizing a contest for students across your entire school or district? Alternatively, do you prefer to keep your contest on the smaller side by challenging just your class or grade level?

STEP 2

Determine how long it will run.

We recommend running your contest for at least two weeks to give students enough time to make real progress in the program. A month-long or six-week contest may be optimal, with check-ins and leaderboards posted weekly!

STEP 3

Choose your metric of success.

  • When students earn a score of 80% or above on the Progress Check, they earn a Mastery Trophy. For this reason, it's easiest to build a contest at the class, grade, or school level around this built-in metric, using simple reports to track.

  • Classroom teachers can also create Challenges around skill mastery or time spent for an additional layer of motivation. Our implementation guidance recommends using Exact Path 40 minutes per subject, per week, to make meaningful gains.

Specifically built for classroom teachers, this built-in Exact Path tool allows you to create, assign, and monitor challenges all in one spot. Students will be notified of any new challenges in their learner interface. 

Available to all educators, the Learning Path Progress Report allows you to review progress for all students within your account. This area is most helpful for school or districtwide contests. Export as a CSV, so you can quickly filter to build your leaderboard.

Use these editable flyers to reflect the details of your contest and start sharing with educators and families!
