Assessment Without Testing

As students work independently in the online activities of Lexia's instructional programs, real-time performance data is collected through Lexia’s patented embedded assessment tool, Assessment Without Testing®. Here, educators can access data reports online through their myLexia accounts on a browser, iPad app, or iPhone app.

Identify a Well-Defined
Instructional Path

Within the myLexia reports, a data-driven action plan is provided to take the guesswork out of differentiating instruction, by focusing the teacher’s time on the greatest need and prescribing the instructional intensity necessary to help students reach end-of-year benchmarks. The action plan identifies the skill areas in which the student is currently working, specific skills with which student needs instruction, the program usage based on the student’s recommended minutes in the program, and completed levels with certificates of achievement to celebrate success.

 

Prioritize and Group Instruction

Lexia Reading Core5 and Lexia Strategies automatically group students by skill in a “Plan Instruction” list for small-group instruction using color-coded icons based on risk level. This helps educators plan their days by prioritizing the students who need the most help.

The programs also provide structured, skill-specific instructional materials, called Lexia Lessons® (indicated by the Lesson Icon) that provide scripted, step-by-step strategies for teachers or paraprofessionals to address each student’s skill gaps.  These lessons follow the Gradual Release of Responsibility model and can be used for both individual and small-group instruction including pull-out groups with intervention specialists.  

Once the student receives a lesson in the area in which they are struggling, they may be ready to return to the independent, online activities and continue in the program or they may need additional support.
