Lexia Learning has announced that Lexia Reading Core5, a pre-K–5 technology-based reading program designed specifically to help students of all abilities meet the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), is now available via web browser, as an app for the iPad and as a desktop download.Developed by Lexia Learning, the program and its supporting printed materials provide structured, sequential, scaffolded instruction that empowers students in grades pre-K–5 to accelerate their mastery of skills and achieve higher levels of proficiency.

Lexia Reading Core5 expands the scope of the Lexia Reading program by covering six areas of reading: phonological awareness, phonics, structural analysis, automaticity/fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.

The program creates personalized learning paths for every student, providing explicit instruction and immediate corrective feedback. Students work independently in 18 levels of fun, self-paced activities that take them on an adventure around the world. Throughout the program, students interact with complex text as they develop critical listening and reading comprehension skills.

If a student struggles with a particular activity, he or she is presented with a scaffolded approach to mastering the relevant skill. If the student continues to struggle, he or she receives skill-specific, explicit instruction online, and if necessary, teacher-led instruction using Lexia’s scripted lesson materials. This personalized approach simplifies differentiated instruction, enabling at-risk students to close the gap more quickly and helping on-level and advanced students to continue to progress with support from their teacher as needed.

As students work in the program, Lexia’s proprietary Assessment Without Testing technology gathers norm-referenced performance data—without stopping the flow of instruction to administer a test—and adjusts each student’s learning path accordingly. Teachers and administrators receive real-time reports on individual student progress toward CCSS mastery, as well as reports indicating each student’s probability of meeting end-of-year, grade-level benchmarks. The system also generates individualized action plans recommending interventions and the proper intensity of instruction necessary to improve student performance and meet benchmarks.

Customers can access the browser-based version of Lexia Reading Core5 at www.lexiacore5.com, and the app is available in the iTunes App Store at www.lexialearning.com/core5ipad. Google Chrome users can access the program at www.lexialearning.com/core5chrome.
