Lexia Reading Provides New Data-Driven Instructional Action Plans and the Ability to Monitor Grade-Level Performance District-Wide

Lexia Learning's new product innovations simplify differentiated instruction, improve teacher's ability to identify struggling students, and enhance accountability measures .
Publish date:

BOSTON — June 26, 2012 — One of the greatest challenges facing teachers today is the task of individualizing and differentiating instruction, and then intervening when students begin to struggle. At the same time, administrators at the building and district level are seeking ways to monitor their students’ progress towards meeting year-end benchmarks, without increasing the burden of traditional testing.

Lexia Learning today announced new product innovations to its research-validated, tech-based reading program, Lexia Reading®. These enhancements provide teachers with a simple, yet dynamic action plan to differentiate instruction for every student. In addition, Lexia's patent-pending system of Assessment Without Testing® provides administrators monthly, norm-referenced measures of student proficiency at the district, grade, school, class and student level, and notifies teachers via email when students are struggling.

"We hear repeatedly from administrators that simplifying and monitoring the effectiveness of differentiated instruction is one of their greatest challenges," said Lexia CEO and President Nick Gaehde. "Lexia Reading is an essential part of every reading curriculum that addresses those needs, and helps teachers to accelerate skill development for all students."

Lexia Reading provides individualized learning, which is both student-driven and teacher-led, as well as norm-referenced performance data without interrupting the flow of instruction to administer a test. Based on skill level and rate of progress in the program, Lexia Reading predicts each student’s chance of reaching an end-of-year benchmark. These sophisticated, research-based measures are correlated to, and highly predictive of, student outcomes on other commonly used measures such as DIBELS® and AIMSweb®.

With the latest innovations in Lexia Reading, classroom teachers receive a data-driven classroom action plan that identifies students for small group instruction and prioritizes those students at the greatest risk of reading failure. The data interface, which is accessible via browser or iPad and iPhone app, also provides student-specific action plans that recommend teacher-led instructional materials to support struggling students, as well as the prescribed intensity of instruction to improve performance on year-end, grade-level assessments.

New Survey from Lexia Learning Shows Educators Struggle with Translating Screener Assessment Data into Actionable Plans

BOSTON (July 15, 2015) – At the heart of great classroom instruction is the teacher’s ability to identify individual student needs and adjust instruction and intervention accordingly. However, a recent survey by Lexia Learning®, a Rosetta Stone® (NYSE:RST) company, suggests that significant gaps exist in teachers’ abilities to quickly access, interpret and act upon student data to support instruction. The survey, which polled more than 200 educators at the International Society for Technology in Education 2015 Conference and Expo (ISTE), indicated there is a growing need to have assessments more quickly pinpoint skill deficiencies while rapidly providing teachers with connections to actionable data for immediate instructional planning.
