"During the stress and uncertainty of COVID, teachers were able to not only provide continuity of instruction, but they were able to support students in making independent progress in these extraordinary times,” said Dr.
Educators Using Data Trends
As students worked independently in the online activities of Lexia's programs during the educational disruption period, real-time performance data was being collected through Lexia’s patented Assessment Without Testing®, an embedded assessment tool that allows teachers to access their student’s progress reports through their myLexia® accounts.
Brooke noted, “More educators than ever logged into myLexia during the school closures. In fact, 83% of those surveyed said that Lexia helped them monitor students’ learning during this time period.”
“It’s comforting for teachers to have a program that's easy to use, easy to access, and makes it easy to see reliable data on the kids when teaching remotely,” said
Lexia Core5 Trends
Core5 is research-proven and designed to accelerate the development of fundamental literacy skills for students of all abilities in grades pre-K-5. When their schools shifted to remote learning during the disruption period, student access to Core5 became a concern for many schools due to a lack of access to devices and internet connections. Consequently, fewer students logged into the program. But among the students who were able to use the program, there were noteworthy trends:
- Average weekly Core5 usage during the disruption period was 35% higher than average weekly usage during the first two months of 2020.
- The increased time spent using Core5 resulted in students completing an average of four more units per week during the disruption period compared to earlier in the year.
Lexia PowerUp Trends
The PowerUp, the research-proven, adaptive blended learning program is an intervention for non-proficient and struggling readers in grades 6-12. PowerUp provides learners with three different instructional strands: Word Study, Grammar, and Comprehension.
When their schools shifted to remote learning during the spring, students’ access to the program decreased, but as with Core5, there were noteworthy trends among those who were able to continue using PowerUp:
- Average weekly PowerUp usage during the disruption period was 17% higher than average weekly usage during the first two months of 2020.
- During the disruption period, a greater proportion of students using the program (28%) met their weekly usage targets as compared to just before the disruption (18%).
