New technology-based reading program designed for CCSS

Lexia Learning today introduced Lexia Reading Core5™, a technology-based reading program developed 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.

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.

As students work in the program, the software gathers norm-referenced performance data 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 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.
