Lexia Learning Partners with Education Elements to Increase Classrooms’ Efficiency and Support Blended Learning

8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM

BOSTON — Aug. 29, 2013Lexia Learning®, a Rosetta Stone® (NYSE:RST) company, has partnered with Education Elements, a prominent provider of blended learning solutions, to simplify the way in which teachers deliver personalized learning experiences to students. As one of the nation’s most highly regarded providers of reading instructional technology, Lexia will integrate its Lexia Reading Core5™ program with Education Elements’ Personalized Learning Platform.  This integration enables students to quickly and easily access Lexia’s reading content and educators to seamlessly access data and analysis tools alongside those of other programs and systems instead of having to move from program to program manually.

 

“Blended learning is all about providing a personalized and flexible approach, which is one of the primary tenets of our approach, and a key reason for our partnership with Education Elements,” said Lexia President Nick Gaehde. “Education Elements is pioneering the use of data across multiple platforms, and we are very pleased to be numbered among Education Elements’ select group of partners.”

 

As part of its rigorous vetting process, Education Elements’ content analysis team spends an average of 40 hours researching partners in depth, using a detailed rubric that examines qualities such as pedagogical approach, content depth, user interface, and data integrity. The collected information is also used to make recommendations that suit each client’s particular instructional needs and objectives.

 

“Lexia Reading’s rich history of high-rigor, research-based products aligns perfectly with our vision for blending innovative instructional practice with the most reliable technology to personalize the learning experience for every student.  Lexia’s Core5 is just the type of product we look for in that it is built on strong pedagogical fundamentals but is also designed to flourish in a 21st century classroom,” said David Sanchez, VP of Product and Platform Partnerships at Education Elements.

 

Covering phonological awareness, phonics, structural analysis, automaticity/fluency, vocabulary and comprehension, Lexia Reading Core5 is the first pre-K–5 technology-based reading program designed specifically to help students of all abilities meet the most rigorous reading standards, including the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The program is built upon Lexia’s nearly 30 years of research, which has been nationally recognized and proven effective in six peer-reviewed outcome studies published in scientific journals such as The Journal of Reading Research and the Bilingual Research Journal.

 

Users of Education Elements’ Personalized Learning Platform will be able to view up-to-date Lexia data in the context of data sets from other programs and easily log in to Lexia with a single click to get additional views of real-time Lexia data detailing student progress across groups, class subjects, and standards. From there, students and teachers have access not only to Lexia Reading Core5’s reading content but also to the program’s proprietary Assessment Without Testing® technology, which gathers norm-referenced performance data—without stopping the flow of instruction to administer a test—and adjusts each student’s learning path accordingly. Students are supported along their personalized learning paths with explicit, scaffolded instruction and immediate corrective feedback.

 

In addition to Assessment Without Testing, Lexia Reading Core5’s assessment data includes real-time reports on individual student progress toward standards mastery. The program indicates each student’s probability of meeting end-of-year, grade-level benchmarks and also generates individualized action plans recommending interventions and the proper intensity of instruction necessary to improve student performance and meet benchmarks.

 

“Lexia Reading Core5 will be part of a rich collection of leading online content and applications that serve grades K–12 and address core and supplemental material across reading, writing, ELA, math, science and social studies,” said Gaehde. “Joining Education Elements and its other partners will give us insights into the unique needs of blended classrooms that will form an invaluable base for future plans.”
