Key Findings
  • Lexia researchers tracked the reading scores of kindergartners who used Core5 for multiple consecutive school years.
  • This was a strong implementation, with high levels of usage of both the online and offline components of Core5 and a dedicated school leader who coordinated these activities.
  • Students showed significant gains on a standardized reading test from the fall to spring of each school year.
  • Test scores declined from spring of one school year to fall of the next, indicative of a ​summer slide​.
  • However, students’ scores improved significantly from fall of one school year to fall of the next, ​pointing to Core5’s value in mitigating summer slide​.
