School leaders select personalized literacy instruction tool as a top educational product

Boston, Mass. (Dec. 19, 2016)  A top priority among district leaders is to provide teachers with innovative tools that improve learning outcomes. Lexia Learning, an award-winning provider of literacy assessment and instructional tools for K-12 students, has been recognized by District Administration's readers as one of the top providers that help districts achieve excellence. The District Administration Readers’ Choice Top 100 Products highlights Lexia Core5 Reading as one of the most exceptional education resources used by districts in 2016.

Each year, District Administration invites readers to nominate the best products that are being used in classrooms and school systems across the nation. The program helps superintendents and other senior school leaders identify teacher- and administrator-approved tools that bolster teaching practices. Resources on this year’s list of top 100 products were selected from more than 1,500 nominations.

“It is Lexia’s mission to provide educators with tools that support literacy gains for all students,” said Nick Gaehde, president of Lexia Learning. “Their recognition of the quality of Lexia Core5 Reading indicates that schools are seeing tremendous improvement in student outcomes with the help of our products.”

Lexia Core5 Reading is a personalized learning program that is student-driven online, and teacher-directed through small-group instruction. The program supports educators in providing differentiated literacy instruction for students of all abilities in grades pre-K–5.  Lexia Core5 Reading’s explicit, systematic approach provides personalized learning in the six areas of reading instruction, targeting skill gaps as they emerge and providing teachers with the data and student-specific resources they need for individual or small-group instruction. Lexia also provides an adaptive assessment tool, Lexia RAPID AssessmentTM, which identifies and monitors language and reading skills for K–12 students.

This recognition contributes to Lexia’s list of accolades earned in 2016. Lexia is also a recipient of the Tech & Learning Award of Excellence, Tech & Learning Best of Show and THE Journal Readers’ Choice Awards.
