Lexia Learning today announced new product innovations to its tech-based reading program, Lexia Reading®. These enhancements provide teachers with an action plan to differentiate instruction for every student. In addition, Lexia's patent-pending system of Assessment Without Testing® provides administrators monthly, norm-referenced measures of student proficiency at the district, grade, school, class and student level, and notifies teachers via email when students are struggling.Lexia Reading provides individualized learning, which is both student-driven and teacher-led, as well as norm-referenced performance data without interrupting the flow of instruction to administer a test. Based on skill level and rate of progress in the program, Lexia Reading predicts each student’s chance of reaching an end-of-year benchmark. These sophisticated, research-based measures are correlated to, and highly predictive of, student outcomes on other commonly used measures such as DIBELS® and AIMSweb®.
With the latest innovations in Lexia Reading, classroom teachers receive a data-driven classroom action plan that identifies students for small group instruction and prioritizes those students at the greatest risk of reading failure. The data interface, which is accessible via browser or iPad and iPhone app, also provides student-specific action plans that recommend teacher-led instructional materials to support struggling students, as well as the prescribed intensity of instruction to improve performance on year-end, grade-level assessments.
