- 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.
