  • Very nice, Randi. I really liked your point on 'Assessment without Testing' thats so crucial to motivation. If the students do not think they are taking a test then the stress level goes down substantially. The PARCC connection was great with the Common Core. Also, current technology inputs and being available anywhere is very appealing. Overall, very great work with key details and evidence. -

  • Great work, Randi. Hey, you got that nice 'Scope & Sequence' chart to show up that wouldn't pop up on my slideshow for some reason!

    I really like your attention to the details here, especially things like how Lexia can potentially be useful for the impending PARCC exam because of computer skills, and how the nature of the intervention eases the problem of student embarrassment. Those are very great points. - Ryan

  • 7. However… More research needs to be done! How will Lexia Reading help Arkansas students taking thenew PARCC exam? Are computer based literacy interventions going to be moreimportant in the future so students learn tech skills andliteracy skills? How does computer based learning affect print awareness?
  • 8. The bottom line… Lexia is a fun, innovative program that students can usefrom any computer to improve their literacy skills. It is not a replacement for conventional training, but anenhancement. Students are more independent, but teacher monitoringis vital!
