A national survey by Lexia Learning® shows that educators spend, on average, nearly an entire instructional month (20 days) or 157 hours focused on assessment of reading skills. In contrast, an “embedded assessment” approach can help schools dramatically reduce time and costs associated with assessing student performance.

Embedded assessment has enabled schools to reduce the amount of testing by gathering student performance data on an ongoing basis during the learning process.  Lexia Reading® is a technology-based system of differentiated learning, embedded assessment and targeted instruction can help schools reduce dependence on traditional testing methods, and reclaim weeks of instructional time.
