Multi-Tier Classroom Setting
In elementary multi-tier classrooms, students' skill levels can vary greatly. In order for educators to personalize and adapt instruction for every student in their classroom, they need the necessary tools to individualize content delivery and the actionable data to help differentiate their approach. Lexia’s literacy assessment and literacy improvement solutions help streamline instruction by providing educators with both periodic screening and diagnostic data, on-going, real-time progress monitoring data, as well as the resources needed to connect performance data to classroom instruction.
Identifies instructional groups and tiers of instruction
Prioritizes students at the greatest risk of reading failure
Supports independent student learning, notifying teachers only when students struggle
How Lexia Helps
Adaptive, Personalized Learning for All Students
With Lexia, each student controls the pace and path of their learning. When they first log in, students are placed automatically at the proper level based on their performance and work independently on developing their fundamental reading skills in targeted activities based on individual needs. Lexia provides explicit, systematic, adaptive learning, scaffolding instruction for students as they struggle and advancing them to higher levels as they demonstrate proficiency.
Data-Driven Instruction Predicts and Prescribes
Using Lexia’s real-time student data reports, educators can easily identify the students who are struggling and the specific skills they need to address. This helps teachers quickly prioritize and identify tiers of instruction and instructional groups without sifting through pages of data. Lexia's data reports also help teachers predict their students’ risk of reading failure and provides each student’s percent chance of reaching end-of-year benchmarks. Color-coded icons signify risk level in order to visually help educators to quickly assess and compare the risk of reading failure associated with their students, classes, schools, or district. Based on this data, Lexia provides educators with a “Prescription of Intensity”—recommended levels of instructional intensity for each student—designed to improve each student's chance of reaching end-of-year benchmarks.
On-Target and Advanced Students
Advanced students have the opportunity to accelerate beyond their grade level skills, as they are given the ability to demonstrate proficiency in each skill area, and are advanced to the next level in the program if no instruction is needed. When a student successfully completes a skill, Lexia provides a set of paper-and-pencil activities, called Lexia Skill Builders, for independent work or activities in peer groups. These activities are designed to build automaticity that has been mastered in the online activities and expand students’ expressive skills through discussions and written responses. These extension activities also provide flexibility for teachers; while some struggling students are pulled aside for direction instruction, on-target and advanced students can continue to work independently.
