Literacy Assessment K–12

Pinpointing each student’s ability level and diagnosing relative strengths and weaknesses is often a time-consuming task that comes at the expense of classroom instructional time. Lexia’s goal is to empower educators with the assessment technology to gather the most meaningful data to make instructional decisions while minimizing the time away from teaching. In addition to the embedded assessment in Lexia's curriculum solutions, Lexia's standalone assessment solution (administered up to three times per year) helps educators determine which students are at-risk for difficulty, how much progress students are making, and where to focus intervention.

  • Measures critical reading and language skills that are highly predictive of reading success  

  • Provides immediate data and analysis for teachers to quickly differentiate instruction

  • Helps teachers and administrators track longitudinal growth across a school year or multiple years

Adaptive Assessment

Adaptive Assessment

Rather than administer several lengthy assessments, Lexia's literacy assessment solution provides an in-depth, reliable measurement of reading ability within a typical class period.  Using adaptive technology, the solution tracks student progress and adjusts questions provided based on student performance. This helps educators predict future reading success on a standardized outcome measure and provides a specific diagnostic profile for each student to help address skill gaps.  

Screen Reading and Language Skills

With tasks that adapt based on individual, real-time performance, RAPID predicts students' likelihood of end-of-year success.
