Lexia Introduces Lexia Reading Core5 for Mastery of Common Core Skills through Grade 5

9/25/2012 12:00:00 AM

BOSTON — September 25, 2012 Lexia Learning today introduced Lexia Reading Core5™, the first technology-based reading program developed specifically to meet the Common Core State Standards. The program provides structured, sequential, scaffolded instruction in the five areas of reading for students of all abilities in grades pre-K–5. Built upon Lexia’s research-proven, award-winning methodology, Lexia Reading Core5 is the most comprehensive reading skills software available.

 

“Lexia Reading Core5 is the result of three years of research and development, with an intense focus on creating a program to help educators meet the Common Core State Standards,” said Lexia President and CEO Nick Gaehde. “Lexia Reading Core5 delivers on the promise of personalized learning for all students in an elementary school setting, with an unsurpassed level of rigorous, explicit instruction that is both technology-driven and teacher-directed.”

 

Lexia Reading Core5 is a technology-based reading program with supporting printed instructional materials that provides all students—from emerging readers to on-level and advanced students—the explicit instruction needed to accelerate mastery of skills. Students work independently, at their own pace on activities based on the Common Core State Standards. If a student struggles with the task, he or she is presented with a scaffolded approach to the skill. If the student continues to struggle, he or she receives skill-specific, direct instruction in the software, and if necessary, explicit, teacher-led instruction using Lexia’s scripted lesson materials. This personalized approach to skill development enables at-risk students to close the gap more quickly, and enables on-level or advanced students to continue to progress with limited support from their teacher.

 

As students work in the program, Lexia’s proprietary Assessment Without Testing® technology gathers norm-referenced performance data—without stopping the flow of instruction to administer a test—and adjusts each student’s learning path accordingly. Teachers and administrators receive real-time reports on individual student progress toward mastery of Common Core State Standards, as well as student-specific action plans to provide intervention and improve performance on year-end assessments.

 

“Lexia Reading Core5 gives us the ability to develop skills from pre-K to grade five, providing a high level of personalized instruction that far exceeds what an individual instructor could possibly do alone,” said Paul Reagan, bilingual coordinator at Tulare City Schools in California. “This new product provides students the opportunity to tackle a standard skill independently and achieve mastery.”

 

Reagan continues, “Having used Lexia’s previous products with great success for the past ten years, our teachers can be confident in providing students an approach to Common Core mastery with access to instruction and remediation all in one setting with Lexia Reading Core5.”

 

Lexia’s research, upon which Lexia Reading Core5 is based, has been nationally recognized and proven effective in seven peer-reviewed, research-based outcomes studies published in scientific journals such as The Journal of Reading Research and the Bilingual Research Journal.

 

Lexia Reading Core5 will be available via browser and on the iPad® in July 2013. Existing Lexia Reading customers (prior to May 31, 2013) will be automatically transitioned to the new product at their current subscription rate.
