According to THE Journal, when readers were asked to name their favorite technology product currently in use by education professionals, Lexia once again took top honors. In addition, readers also ‘wrote in’ recognizing Core5 as the most valuable product their school or district added this year. And the accolades didn’t stop there. Core5 also received a silver honor under the Favorite Interventions and Remediation software section.
For its fourth annual Readers’ Choice Awards program, THE Journal’s staff invited members of the education community to submit the best products, providers and services in any category of their choosing and share their views on the significance they play in schools and districts across the country.
More than 1,100 education technology professionals, including IT staff and educators, spoke out about the tools they think have the most positive impact on the mission of education.
“Lexia is a company that is dedicated to solving K-12 literacy issues through our personalized and blended learning solutions said Nick Gaehde, Lexia president. “What a remarkable testament to our flagship product Core5 to be recognized this year - just like last year – by so many educators who took the time to share their opinions on what’s working in their classrooms. We are thrilled to have done so well across so many categories and honored to be recognized by the educators who read THE Journal.”
As the cornerstone of Lexia’s expanding portfolio of K-12 literacy products, Core5 is a research-proven, technology-based program that accelerates the development of fundamental literacy skills for students of all abilities in grades pre-K–5. The program provides explicit, systematic instruction through personalized learning paths in six areas of reading and seamlessly adapts with student performance, targeting skill gaps as they emerge, and equipping teachers with the data and instructional resources they need to personalize instruction for every student. Earlier this year, the company added Lexia® PowerUp LiteracyTM (PowerUp) to its suite of literacy offerings. Developed specifically to enhance core English Language Arts instruction for non-proficient readers in grades 6 and above, PowerUp identifies skill gaps and provides personalized learning paths in word study, grammar and comprehension. In 2016, Lexia introduced a computer-adaptive universal screener, Lexia® RAPIDTM Assessment for K-12 students that assesses the skills most predictive of end-of-year reading success.
“With more than 30 years of experience in reading pedagogy and research and several peer-reviewed studies demonstrating the efficacy of our instructional approach, we have always put the needs of teachers and students at the core of what we do,” added Gaehde. “And, we will continue to do so in the years to come.”
