Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 05, 2012
Lexia Learning® today announced that Lexia Reading®, one of the nation’s most highly regarded reading software programs, has been endorsed by the Council of Administrators of Special Education (CASE). Currently used by nearly 1,000,000 students, Lexia Reading advances reading skills development for all students pre–K through grade 4, and intensifies and accelerates learning for at-risk students in grades 4–12.
“We believe that Lexia Reading is an incredibly effective and cost-efficient way to improve reading proficiency for struggling students and students of all abilities,” said Dr. Luann Purcell, executive director of CASE. “Based on a thorough review by the members of the CASE Publications and Product Review Committee, Lexia Reading meets or exceeds all of the criteria on the CASE Scoring Rubric, and therefore carries an official CASE Endorsement.”
Lexia Reading provides individualized, adaptive learning for students of all abilities, and provides teachers with norm-referenced data on student proficiency, as well as the instructional resources necessary to differentiate instruction for each student. The Executive Committee of CASE called particular attention to several aspects of the program as reason for their endorsement:
- “Lexia’s efficacy research has been published six times in peer-reviewed reading journals, providing third-party validation of the effectiveness of Lexia Reading.”
- “The product provides individualized, adaptive learning that allows students to work at their own pace in the five areas of reading instruction. This differentiated approach helps students who are at-risk, on-level, or advanced to improve their reading ability.”
- “Lexia’s embedded assessment technology, called Assessment Without Testing™, will save educators weeks of instructional time by providing detailed, real-time information on student reading proficiency without administering a test.”
