BOSTON (Sept. 7, 2017) – In order to increase the flexibility and efficiency with which districts and schools can administer adaptive reading assessment, Lexia Learning, a Rosetta Stone company, has made the Lexia RAPID Assessment™ literacy program available on iPad with the RAPID iOS app. The computer-adaptive screener and diagnostic tool for grades K-12 is now available on the App Store.

“Many school districts we work with requested a version of RAPID for iPad,” said Lexia President Nick Gaehde. “Now educators have the option of using RAPID on either a browser or an iPad. This will provide greater ease of administration, increased accessibility for younger students and a powerful complement to our Lexia Reading Core5® literacy instruction program which also is available as an app.”

Administered up to three times a year, RAPID efficiently screens the skills most predictive of end-of-year reading success. Setting it apart from other screening assessments, RAPID discretely measures the academic language skills that play a significant role in overall reading comprehension, particularly as students transition from learning to read to reading to learn. In addition, RAPID provides educators with actionable data that identifies literacy instructional priorities at the district, school, class, and student level.

Morgen Owings Elementary School in the state of Washington is one of the many schools that have benefitted fromhow RAPID’s immediately available data empowers their teachers to align literacy instruction to address students’ identified strengths and weaknesses in word recognition, academic language, and reading comprehension. “Just like in many schools and districts around the country – we too, had assessment fatigue and frustration over which was the best method for evaluating reading progress,” said Principal Heidi Busk. “What we now know is that when assessments are properly administered and integrated into instruction, the resulting data can provide teachers with valuable information to support student learning, and this is what Lexia has given us.”
