Lexia Learning has announced the anticipated launch of Lexia Reading for the iPad, available in late 2012. Currently in development, this app is the only research-validated literacy program available on the iPad, and will provide the full functionality of Lexia's data-driven, individualized learning program, Lexia Reading, according to the announcement.
Students using Lexia Reading for the iPad will have the same experience as with the computer-based version of the product. The software provides students an explicit, systematic, structured and individualized approach to developing foundational reading proficiency. Using Lexia's patent-pending embedded assessment functionality, detailed performance data is captured in real time. These norm- referenced performance measures predict student outcomes on year-end assessments, identify student skill gaps, and provide teachers and paraprofessionals with recommended materials for individualizing instruction.
