At the end of a learning cycle, your child will complete a test that determines their progress and what learning should take place next.
This test is essential for effective personalised learning to gather real-time data and enable timely feedback and intervention.
Maths Pathway also measures three very important areas:
Effort is the number of content modules completed versus the number of modules assigned for the cycle. High effort can be seen when students are keen to work hard and see how far they can push themselves. Lower levels of effort might be due to disengagement, or if a student is struggling.
Accuracy is a measure of how many content modules a student has mastered, as a proportion of their total completed modules for that cycle. Mastery is an important part of the Maths Pathway model as we know that students learn maths on a continuum, so they must understand each concept before they can reach higher levels of maths.
At the end of the two week cycle, a tutor will review your child’s work and provide feedback.
It’s really important to have humans checking work as they can quickly identify misconceptions and pick up on silly mistakes in your child's work that other programs would mark wrong.
Josh is in Year 5 and started with Maths Pathway at Home with a learning level of 5.2. In five short months, Josh grew his learning by 1.47 years and is now confidently working at a year 6.7 level.
“Maths in the classroom was often too easy and I got bored working at the pace of the whole class. Using Maths Pathway at Home, I have been able to fill the gaps in my understanding and now I’m working way above where I would be in the classroom. I’m learning to love maths because I’m always challenged the right amount.”

When Lucy started her journey with Maths Pathway at Home she was learning at a year 6.3 level. In just 7 months she has caught up by 1.36 years and is now working at a year 7.6 level.
"My daughter loves using Maths Pathway at Home! She is able to work very independently and loves the way the lessons are delivered. She is now mastering subjects at a Year 9 and 10 levels while consolidating her knowledge of the Year 8 concepts, which is exciting for her as a Year 8 student.”

At Maths Pathway we identify every child’s learning gaps from the start, so they can work on filling them and creating a solid foundation from which more maths learning can grow.
Steven is in Year 7 and started learning with Maths Pathway at Home in February. He was learning at a year 7.1 level, but now is working at a year 8.5 level by achieving an amazing 1.4 years of growth in 7 months.
“Maths Pathway is a fundamental part of my homeschooling program. I feel relieved to know my son is working at his own level, at the same time it is great to be able to monitor his progress. The support of the Maths Pathways team is consistently good and at any time you can request a report of your child’s progress which is handy for the yearly homeschool reports we need to complete.
At Maths Pathway, our purpose is clear. We want to build a future where every child leaves school unafraid of maths and ready to apply their mathematical toolkit to the challenges they face in life.
