Lexia Learning® has announced a long-term strategic partnership with researchers from the Florida Center for Reading Research (FCRR) focusing on research and innovation in the area of language and literacy assessment. In 2014, Lexia and FCRR will launch a computer-adaptive, K–12 assessment to provide teachers the instructional strategies necessary to address individual student skill gaps.

Schools will use the new Lexia assessment three times per year—in the fall, winter, and spring—with progress monitoring on reading skills available for monthly use.  The Lexia assessment will also provide students with listening or reading comprehension passages and diagnostic tasks that give profiles of their strengths and weaknesses.

Following a limited pilot implementation in fall of 2014, the assessment will be available for state- and district-level implementation in the fall of 2015.
