Both reading programs provide daily progress monitoring data as well as resources to connect student performance data to classroom instruction, setting the foundation for connecting each component of a strong blended learning implementation.

    Lexia for literacy interventions
    Lexia Reading Core5 is uniquely suited to support Response to Intervention and Multi-Tiered System of Supports models. Data-driven action plans help teachers maximize their time by focusing attention where it is needed most by identifying and grouping students for instruction based on risk of reading failure, tracking the effectiveness of intervention with real-time diagnostic reports and trend lines, and prescribing the instructional intensity needed to improve performance on grade-level assessments. For more information, click here. 


    Lexia in extended-day programs

This school-to-home connection provides parents and other caregivers with a closer look into to the educational and literacy needs of their child, facilitating better communication between parents and classroom teachers during conferences. For more information, click here. 

  • Is there efficacy research on your products

    Yes! Lexia stands as one of the most rigorously researched and independently evaluated reading programs in the world. In numerous studies published in peer-reviewed journals, Lexia has been found to accelerate the development of critical fundamental literacy skills in elementary grades. Additionally, Lexia’s Research team examined the performance of more than 565,000 students across the country who met their usage goals using Core5, and this is what they found:

    • 70% of high-risk students gained two or more years of grade-level skills in Core5 in one year
       
    • 21% of on-target students gained more than two years of grade-level skills in Core5 in one year

    These gains were not just limited to Lexia’s own instructional benchmarks. Their success translated into improved performance in commonly used assessments such as STAR, MAPⓇ, DIBELS Next, and AIMSwebⓇRead the full correlation reports.
