Educators are Talking About PowerUp

Educators are Talking About PowerUp

"Because we chose to screen all of our students with RAPID, not just those students we felt needed support, we discovered that our entire middle school population lacked proficiency in grammar, one of the three instructional strands addressed by PowerUp. Knowing this, we have all our students use PowerUp to close these skill gaps."

—  Nancy Talley, Director of Curriculum, River Valley Local School District, Caledonia, OH
 

PowerUp Personalized Learning

PowerUp Personalized Learning

Lexia PowerUp Literacy is built around the specific needs of each non-proficient reader. PowerUp utilizes adaptive, personalized learning to help students simultaneously develop fundamental literacy and higher-order thinking skills through a range of engaging, age-appropriate content. Based on student responses in the online activities, the instructional intensity is differentiated to accelerate reading skills development and this data is sent in real time to the teacher, fueling customized skills-based lesson plans. Using the program's embedded assessment, teachers can focus on personalized instruction without having to stop to administer a test.
