Reading Horizons and MetaMetrics® announce the expansion of their partnership with the addition of Lexile® measures in the Reading Horizons Discovery™program.
Reading Horizons Discovery is a strategy-based reading solution designed for students in kindergarten through third grade that incorporates multi-sensory, Orton-Gillingham principles of instruction and a unique marking system.
The software includes formative assessments as well as vocabulary, games, and activities. Reading Horizons Discovery fulfills 92% of the standards for foundational reading skills for students in K-3, as well as other standards outlined by the Common Core State Standards, and is correlated to the findings of the National Reading Panel.
The assessment’s initial Lexile measure serves as a benchmark for gauging both a student’s reading ability and the complexity of text so that appropriate reading materials can be matched to the student as they progress. Reading Horizons Discovery automatically unlocks reading passages in the software library as additional skills are mastered.
