Readers' Choice Award
Lexia Reading Core5 Presented with 2014-2015 eSchool News Readers' Choice
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.
The Reader's Choice Award winners and honorable mentions are recognized in a
special feature published in the August 2014 edition of eSchool News and on
eSchoolNews.com. This special feature includes comments from readers about why
each entry deserves the award. A complete list of this year's winners can be
