Assessment Without Testing
As students work independently in the online activities of Lexia's instructional programs, real-time performance data is collected through Lexia’s patented embedded assessment tool, Assessment Without Testing®. Here, educators can access data reports online through their myLexia accounts on a browser, iPad app, or iPhone app.
Identify a Well-Defined
Within the myLexia reports, a data-driven action plan is provided to take the guesswork out of differentiating instruction. These reports helps focus the teacher’s time on the greatest need by prescribing the instructional intensity necessary to help students reach end-of-year benchmarks.
The action plan identifies the skill areas in which the student is currently working, specific skills with which student needs instruction, the program usage based on the student’s recommended minutes in the program, and completed levels.
Prioritize and Group Instruction
Lexia automatically groups students by skill for small-group instruction using color-coded icons based on risk level. This helps educators plan their days by prioritizing the students who need the most help. The programs also provide structured, skill-specific instructional materials that provide scripted, step-by-step strategies for teachers or paraprofessionals to address each student’s skill gaps.
These lessons can be used for both individual and small-group instruction including pull-out groups with intervention specialists. Once the student receives a lesson, they may be ready to return to the independent, online activities and continue in the program or they may need additional support.
