All of Lexia’s language and literacy programs, Lexia® Core5® Reading, Lexia® PowerUp Literacy®, and Lexia® English Language Development™, have helped students accelerate learning during the pandemic.
Core5 Helps Address Interrupted Learning
Core5 has been shown to help students accelerate learning gains during the pandemic. In a nationwide study of more than 12,000 students conducted during the 2020-2021 school year, more than 80% of students who used Core5 did not have learning loss. In addition, 40% of Core5 users exceeded their MAP Growth goals. The impact of Core5 was seen regardless of students’ gender, race/ethnicity, Emergent Bilingual or special education status.
PowerUp Helps Students Learn Faster
Improved Access to On-Grade Content: In a recent case study, researchers from RAND found that students starting below grade level who used Lexia programs (Core5 and/or PowerUp) made substantial progress toward accessing grade-level content by the end of the year.
Multiple Years of Growth: For students who used PowerUp with fidelity, 57% covered three or more grade levels of skills in a single year. (PowerUp 21-22 annual report)
Lexia English Users Show Significant Growth in Language Proficiency
Improved Speaking for Lexia English Users: On the English Language Proficiency Assessment for California (ELPAC) test, Lexia English users scored an average of 18 points higher on the ELPAC’s oral domain and 14 points higher on the written domain.
