Lexia is an essential component of every reading curriculum.
Lexia Reading Core5 provides explicit, systematic, personalized learning in the five areas of reading instruction, and delivers norm-referenced performance data and analysis without interrupting the flow of instruction to administer a test. Designed specifically to meet Common Core State Standards, this research-proven, technology-based approach accelerates reading skills development, predicts students’ year-end performance and provides teachers data-driven action plans to help differentiate instruction.
Lexia Reading Core5 expands upon the scope of award-winning Lexia Reading and covers the five areas of reading for students of all abilities in grades pre-K–5. Strategies for Older Students, Lexia's program for struggling students in grades 6-12, provides a more mature interface with advanced activities and content. Lexia Reading Core5 will be available in July 2013 on the iPad and via browser. (View the Lexia Reading Core5 system requirements.)
Lexia helps all students achieve mastery on their foundational reading skills.
Lexia has helped millions of advanced, on-level and at-risk students to meet their end-of-year, grade-level benchmarks. Within the first month of school, Lexia Reading Core5 can accurately predict which students are unlikely to meet their year-end benchmarks, if the intensity of instruction is not increased. The program then provides the strategies and resources for direct instruction to help each student finish the year at grade level. In a national study of all students using Lexia, two-thirds of high-risk students using the program as directed were able to close the achievement gap within one year.
Lexia provides personalized learning that is both student-driven and teacher-directed.
Using Lexia Reading Core5, students are automatically placed at the proper level and work independently, at school or at home, on developing their foundational reading skills in the student activities. Teachers are provided with a data-driven action plan that tells teachers the specific skills on which each student needs instruction, and prescribes the precise amount of time on the software for each student. This way, teachers can spend their time focused only where it’s needed.
Students are automatically grouped—by skill—for small group instruction. The program provides scripted, skill-specific instructional materials, called Lexia Lessons®. These structured lesson plans provide step-by-step strategies for teachers or paraprofessionals to address each student’s skill-gaps. When a student completes a level in the program, teachers can access a customized certificate of achievement to recognize student progress.
Lexia reduces dependence on traditional testing and saves teachers up to one month of instructional time.
While students are working independently in the program, Lexia’s embedded assessment system, Assessment Without Testing®, provides educators with actionable, norm-referenced performance data without interrupting the flow of instruction to administer a test. The assessment data is correlated to and highly predictive of DIBELS, AIMSweb, MAPS and other commonly used norm-referenced assessments, dramatically reducing dependence on traditional testing. This lowers expenditures on assessments and, according to a national survey, saves teachers up to a month of instructional time.
Lexia makes real-time data accessible anywhere, anytime.
Lexia Reading Core5 is the only comprehensive, technology-based reading program available for the iPad. The myLexia app for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch allows mobile access to key information and data-driven action plans to help all of your students on the path to reading success. Student progress e-mails alert teachers when students need instruction and when students have achievement certificates available.
