  Rosetta Stone company's technology-based reading program continues to gain
                          recognition for innovation

BOSTON -Aug. 1, 2014 -  For the third time in  just the past four months,  the 
Lexia Reading®  Core5®pre-K-5  reading program  has  been honored,  this  time 
receiving the  coveted  eSchool News  2014-2015  Reader's Choice  Award.  This 
annual program honors  50 of  the best  programs and  services in  educational 
technology as  chosen by  the publication's  readers. In  May, Lexia  Reading 
Core5 was named a finalist in  the Revere Awards presented by the  Association 
of American  Publishers  and  was  also named  a  winner  in  the  prestigious 
Academics' Choice Smart Media Awards,  a seal of educational quality  reserved 
for the best educational media on the market.

"It is an honor that eSchool News readers and panelists believe as strongly as
we do in the  value of what Lexia  Reading Core5 accomplishes in  accelerating 
students' reading skills development," said Lexia President Nick Gaehde.  "We 
are especially pleased to receive this  recognition in the very first year  of 
offering Lexia Reading Core5 to schools and districts."

More than 1,300 educators and  administrators from K-12 schools and  districts 
across North America  nominated their  favorite ed-tech  programs or  services 
this past spring; to maintain the  integrity of the program, eSchool News  did 
not accept  nominations  from vendors.  Nominating  educators were  asked  to 
describe how they  were using each  product to improve  teaching, learning  or 
school administration-and to what effect.

"The result is a list of ed-tech programs and services that have proven to  be 
effective," said  eSchool  News Editorial  Director  Dennis Pierce.  "We  hope 
readers will find this information valuable as they consider what technologies
they should use in their own schools."

Launched in  July of  2013  by Lexia  Learning,  a Rosetta  Stone®  (NYSE:RST) 
company,  Lexia  Reading   Core5  accelerates   fundamental  literacy   skills 
development for students of all abilities through personalized learning paths,
providing scaffolding and explicit instruction that supports students if  they 
struggle.  Built   on  30   years   of  education   research,  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 
while helping 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.
