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.
