  Lexia Reading Core5 Program Integrated into Cloud-Based Platform to Expand
 Schools' Capacity for Effective Data Management and Blended Learning Models


BOSTON - Aug. 29, 2013 - Lexia Learning®, a Rosetta Stone® (NYSE:RST) company,
has partnered with Education Elements, a prominent provider of blended
learning solutions, to simplify the way in which teachers deliver personalized
learning experiences to students. As one of the nation's most highly regarded
providers of reading instructional technology, Lexia will integrate its Lexia
Reading Core5(TM) program with Education Elements' Personalized Learning
Platform. This integration enables students to quickly and easily access
Lexia's reading content and educators to seamlessly access data and analysis
tools alongside those of other programs and systems instead of having to move
from program to program manually.

"Blended learning is all about providing a personalized and flexible approach,
which is one of the primary tenets of our approach, and a key reason for our
partnership with Education Elements," said Lexia President Nick Gaehde.
"Education Elements is pioneering the use of data across multiple platforms,
and we are very pleased to be numbered among Education Elements' select group
of partners."

As part of its rigorous vetting process, Education Elements' content analysis
team spends an average of 40 hours researching partners in depth, using a
detailed rubric that examines qualities such as pedagogical approach, content
depth, user interface, and data integrity. The collected information is also
used to make recommendations that suit each client's particular instructional
needs and objectives.

"Lexia Reading's rich history of high-rigor, research-based products aligns
perfectly with our vision for blending innovative instructional practice with
the most reliable technology to personalize the learning experience for every
student. Lexia's Core5 is just the type of product we look for in that it is
built on strong pedagogical fundamentals but is also designed to flourish in a
21^st century classroom," said David Sanchez, VP of Product and Platform
Partnerships at Education Elements.

Covering phonological awareness, phonics, structural analysis,
automaticity/fluency, vocabulary and comprehension, Lexia Reading Core5 is the
first pre-K-5 technology-based reading program designed specifically to help
students of all abilities meet the most rigorous reading standards, including
the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The program is built upon Lexia's
nearly 30 years of research, which has been nationally recognized and proven
effective in six peer-reviewed outcome studies published in scientific
journals such as The Journal of Reading Research and the Bilingual Research

Users of Education Elements' Personalized Learning Platform will be able to
view up-to-date Lexia data in the context of data sets from other programs and
easily log in to Lexia with a single click to get additional views of
real-time Lexia data detailing student progress across groups, class subjects,
and standards. From there, students and teachers have access not only to Lexia
Reading Core5's reading content but also to the program's proprietary
Assessment Without Testing® technology, which gathers norm-referenced
performance data-without stopping the flow of instruction to administer a
test-and adjusts each student's learning path accordingly. Students are
supported along their personalized learning paths with explicit, scaffolded
instruction and immediate corrective feedback.

In addition to Assessment Without Testing, Lexia Reading Core5's assessment
data includes real-time reports on individual student progress toward
standards mastery. The program indicates each student's probability of meeting
end-of-year, grade-level benchmarks and also generates individualized action
plans recommending interventions and the proper intensity of instruction
necessary to improve student performance and meet benchmarks.

"Lexia Reading Core5 will be part of a rich collection of leading online
content and applications that serve grades K-12 and address core and
supplemental material across reading, writing, ELA, math, science and social
studies," said Gaehde. "Joining Education Elements and its other partners will
give us insights into the unique needs of blended classrooms that will form an
invaluable base for future plans."
