Lexia Learning Systems has announced the launch of Lexia Reading Version 6.0. The enhanced version of Lexia’s software makes implementation faster and easier. Lexia’s new Auto Placement functionality helps students to quickly begin using Lexia Reading at their individually suited skill level; while new Auto Promotion functionality automatically advances students to increasingly challenging levels of Lexia Reading. In addition, command-line installation makes software distribution simpler for school IT directors, according to the announcement. 

Lexia Reading is designed to be an essential part of reading instruction for students from pre-K to adult. Lexia’s Auto Placement provides an automated way of precisely placing students at the correct level. The first time that students login to the program, they will spend approximately 10 minutes completing a series of selected activities from grade-appropriate skills programs, which will determine the areas in which each individual student needs practice and the level at which they should begin using Lexia Reading. 

Lexia Reading’s new Auto Promotion functionality promotes students through each program, from Early Reading to Primary Reading and from Primary Reading to Strategies for Older Students, enabling students to work with more independence. Teachers can monitor student progress using Lexia’s robust reporting system, and dedicate more time to those students with the greatest needs, the announcement states.

Installation of Lexia Reading has also become easier. With command-line installation (Windows), school IT directors can more easily distribute the software to multiple computers.

Version 6.0 also provides a more engaging experience for students, with congratulatory screens and streamlined and simplified program design. In addition, students spend more time-on-task with simplified student login.
