Lexia Releases Lexia Reading Core5 Android App
New Mobile App Expands Student Access to Personalized Learning Program,
Supports Mastery of Foundational Reading Skills Anytime, Anywhere
BOSTON - June 17, 2014 - Lexia Reading® Core5®, the pre-K-5 technology-based
reading program, is now available as an Android app. Downloadable from the
Google Play store at http://tinyurl.com/l96cr5s, the new app from Lexia
Learning®, a Rosetta Stone® (NYSE:RST) company, allows students to use Lexia
Reading Core5 on phones and tablets running Android 2.3 and higher. Students
will now have greater access to the program in tablet-enabled classrooms and
computer labs, and they can extend their use outside of the school day in
blended learning environments.
"An increasing number of teachers are using mobile devices to create more
flexible, student-driven learning experiences," said Lexia President Nick
Gaehde. "By expanding access to Lexia's multi-sensory instructional technology
to the iPad and now to Android devices, we're harnessing the potential of
mobile devices to improve student productivity as well as facilitate student
learning and engagement in the classroom and beyond."
Built upon Lexia's 30 years of reading education research, Lexia Reading Core5
accelerates fundamental literacy skills development for students of all
abilities through personalized learning paths, with scaffolding and explicit
instruction that supports students if they struggle. Each of the
age-appropriate, skill-specific activities conforms to the most rigorous state
standards, including the Common Core. The program simplifies differentiated
instruction, enabling at-risk students to close the reading gap more quickly
and on-level and advanced students to continue to progress.
In addition, the program includes Lexia's proprietary Assessment Without
Testing® technology, which can be used by educators to reduce dependence on
traditional testing methods. The embedded assessment technology gathers
student performance data without administering a test, using norm-referenced
measurements that are correlated to, and highly predictive of, student
outcomes on commonly used measures such as DIBELS® and AIMSweb®. Assessment
Without Testing provides teachers and intervention specialists with real-time
reports on student progress as well as individualized action plans that
recommend targeted instructional strategies and structured lessons, including
the minutes-per-week of software usage each student needs to improve
performance on grade-level assessments.
