Lexia Reading Core5 Results

Lexia has already helped thousands of students in Georgia become successful readers. Click the links below to learn more.

Lexia Research

Lexia stands as one of the most rigorously researched, independently evaluated, and respected reading programs in the world. In numerous studies published in peer-reviewed journals, Lexia Reading has been found to accelerate the development of critical fundamental literacy skills in elementary grades. Lexia Strategies has also been shown to be effective in remediating struggling readers in middle school. The six published studies summarized below followed rigorous scientific standards, including the use of control groups, pre-testing/post-testing, standardized and norm-referenced reading tests, and stringent statistical data analysis.

  • Computers in Schools (2015) – Results demonstrate the benefits of using Lexia Reading Core5 as a blended learning approach to reading instruction for first and second graders who had significantly greater pretest to posttest gains on the GRADE™ than a control group of students who did not use Core5.
  • Reading Psychology (2008) – Kindergarten students using Lexia outperformed students in the control group on the Gates-MacGinitie Reading Test®. Group differences were more pronounced for low performers.
  • Reading Psychology (2011) – Preschool students and low performers in Kindergarten made significantly greater gains than the control group on the GRADE™ assessment, which measures early literacy skills.
  • Bilingual Research Journal (2011) – ELL students using Lexia in addition to core reading instruction showed greater gains than a control group in overall reading, phonological awareness and word reading.
  • Journal of Research in Reading (2006) – Title I students in first grade using Lexia made significantly greater gains on the Gates-MacGinitie Reading Test than Title I students in a control group; these students also closed the gap with non-Title I students.
  • European Journal of Special Needs Education (2009) – Middle school students made significant gains relative to a control group on the Woodcock-Johnson® III Tests of Achievement Reading Word Attack subtest.
  • Perspectives on Language and Literacy (2007) – Lexia identifies several research-validated best practices at the school and classroom level to ensure that students benefit from the learning opportunity through technology.

Lexia Scope & Sequence

Lexia Reading Core5 provides all students—from emerging readers to on-level and advanced students—a structured, sequential, scaffolded approach to the five areas of reading instruction—from phonological awareness to comprehension. The program creates personalized learning paths for each student through adaptive placement and pacing in activities aligned to the Common Core and other rigorous state standards. 


Phonological awareness activities include identifying, segmenting, blending and manipulating syllables and sounds in words. Phonemic Awareness is a component of phonological awareness that focuses on individual sounds within words.
Learn more about phonological awareness.

Phonics activities include the ability to apply knowledge of letter-sound correspondence to reading and spelling words. In addition, phonics activities involve pattern recognition of syllable types, rules for syllable division and simple spelling generalizations that are based on letter-sound correspondence.
Learn more about phonics.

Structural analysis activities include work on recognizing meaningful parts of multisyllabic words derived from Latin and Greek.
Learn more about structural analysis.

Automaticity is systematically developed through a series of warm-ups and activities focused on speed of processing. Fluency is addressed through activities that involve analysis of sentence structure and ultimately the timed silent reading of passages.
Learn more about automaticity/fluency.

Vocabulary activities are structured to teach word-learning strategies, to provide exposure to rich and varied vocabulary words, and to allow students to develop an awareness of word relationships and associations.
Learn more about vocabulary.

Comprehension activities develop the ability to understand information at a concrete level as well as an abstract level through the application of higher order thinking skills. Activities develop comprehension strategies through interaction with increasingly complex narrative and informational texts.
Learn more about comprehension.
