PowerUp: Independent, Student-Driven Learning

Lexia® PowerUp Literacy™ allows students to work at their own pace to develop skills essential to success in both literacy and content-area learning. After automatically placing students at just the right level, PowerUp guides students through an expertly crafted scope and sequence. 

In PowerUp, students are automatically placed at the proper skill level where they can work independently. Through a system of explicit instruction, adaptive learning, and scaffolding, PowerUp gradually releases responsibility to students as they demonstrate greater proficiency.

Personalized Learning Paths

With 120 unique initial placement combinations in the three instructional strands of Word Study, Grammar, and Comprehension, Lexia PowerUp Literacy delivers an unprecedented level of personalization to identify and address the diverse needs of struggling readers. 

Students work independently on tasks that adapt based on their responses, providing real-time personalization. If students struggles in a particular activity, PowerUp provides immediate feedback before delivering direct instruction. Once students demonstrate understanding of the skill taught, they have the opportunity to try the initial activity again. If students continue to struggle, the teacher is notified and provided with an offline lesson to deliver that targets that specific skill. 


Engaging Learning Environment

Specifically designed for students in grades 6 and above, PowerUp helps struggling readers simultaneously develop fundamental literacy and high-order thinking skills through an engaging, game-like program interface. 

Student dashboard

Since students' learning within the program is self-directed, they can choose which activities to complete as they work through the rigorous scope and sequence.

The student dashboard helps students set and manage goals, and encourages them to take ownership of their learning.

Embedded hook videos

Hook videos introduce texts by piquing students’ interest, while instructional videos teach grammar concepts, comprehension strategies, and the elements of literary and informational texts with age-appropriate songs and humor.
