Today, Lexia announced Lexia Reading® version 8.0, a technology-based reading curriculum that predicts student performance on year-end, grade-level assessments and offers prescriptive recommendations for the intensity of instruction needed to improve each student’s performance.

Lexia Reading’s system of differentiated practice, embedded assessment and targeted instruction is an integrated curriculum tool to offer norm-referenced, predictive performance measures without administering a test. 

Lexia Reading version 8 also features the launch of a new iPhone® app, which will allow administrators and teachers to view student performance data on their iPhone. In addition, Lexia Reading includes seven new “Lexia Lessons” for use on Interactive Whiteboards.

Council Bluffs and Davenport the Latest Districts to Use Lexia’s Program to Meet Requirements of Chapter 62, Accelerate Reading Gains and Close Achievement Gaps   BOSTON (April 6, 2015) – By the end of 2017, the State of Iowa is requiring that third-graders must be reading at or above grade-level or they will face the prospect of an intensive summer school program or repeat the third grade. To meet this mandate and boost the performance of its struggling readers while improving the reading proficiency of all students, Council Bluffs Community School District (Iowa) has chosen to implement Lexia Reading® Core5®. In addition, Davenport Community School District has expanded its use of the research-proven reading program from use in grades K-3 to all students in grades K-5, district-wide. A number of schools in Des Moines and Cedar Rapids join a host of districts including West Burlington, Algona, Spencer, Albia, Mt. Ayre, and Oakland in either implementing Lexia Reading Core5 as part of their personalized reading program or broadly expanding their use of the program this year.
