Using Data to Drive Instruction
As students work independently in the online activities, real-time performance data is collected through Lexia’s embedded assessment tool, Assessment Without Testing. Teachers can access data reports online through their myLexia accounts on a browser, iPad app, or iPhone app.
Within the data reports, a data-driven action plan is provided to take the guesswork out of differentiating instruction by focusing the teacher’s time on the greatest needs in the classroom and prescribing the instructional intensity needed to help students reach their end-of-year benchmark. The action plan identifies the skill areas in which the student is currently working, specific skills on which student needs instruction, the program usage based on the student’s recommended minutes in the program, and completed levels with certificates of achievement to celebrate success.
Reduce dependence on traditional testing and save up to one month of instructional time.
While students are working independently in the online activities, Lexia’s embedded assessment system, Assessment Without Testing®, provides teachers with actionable, norm-referenced performance data without interrupting the flow of instruction to administer a test. The assessment data is correlated to and highly predictive of outcomes on DIBELS, AIMSweb, MAPS and other commonly used norm-referenced assessments. This lowers expenditures on assessments and, according to a national survey, saves teachers up to a month of instructional time.
Administrators and educators can access data reports on a browser, iPad app, or iPhone app and are available at a student, class, year and school level.
