Lexia® Core5® Reading and the IREAD-3
Correlations: Correlations between students’ End Level in Lexia® Core5® Reading (Core5) and the end-of-year Indiana Reading Evaluation Determination (IREAD-3) scale scores were significant and fell in the medium range for all grade levels (Table 1). Correlations in the medium range are considered strong when evaluating a reading assessment (or program).
Alignments: There was an alignment between end-of-year, grade-level benchmark status in Core5 and performance on the IREAD-3. A majority of students (78%) who reached benchmark in Core5 by the end of the year also passed the IREAD-3 (Table 2).
