Lexia learn-to-read

Lexia Learning has released a new version of its learn-to-read program, Lexia Reading v5 for students in grades Pre-K to 12. The developer claims that struggling readers who used Lexia Reading v5 during a summer program made between nine and 12 months of grade-level equivalent progress, determined by independent pre and post tests using AGS' "G.R.A.D.E" assessment. The new release includes an option for delivery over the Web, and includes new and expanded management tools, reporting, and district reporting features. The suite consists of Lexia Early Reading, designed to increase phonological awareness among 4 to 6 year olds; Lexia Primary Reading, which helps all children ages 5 to 8 master basic reading skills; and Lexia Strategies for Older Students, for students ages 9 to adult helps older students learn to read through intensive skill practice.


The developer says: "Students work at their own pace, at their own level and enjoy a fun and engaging program, which includes an age-appropriate interface and content for older students. Lexia classrooms are filled with students actively involved in their own learning. The Lexia reports provide teachers the ability to continuously monitor and guide additional instruction on specific reading skills."

Lexia Reading is available now as a Mac OS X application and a Web-enabled option, or at the beginning of 2008 as a network version. The price will be customized depending on the number of simultaneous users. An implementation of 25 simultaneous users on one of the Lexia Reading programs would cost a school $200 per simultaneous user for a total of $5,000.
