  • This is Randi Henderson. I also looked at the WWC report, and it seems like their standards are very rigorous. It was a little discouraging to see, as you pointed out, that the WWC only verifies that a few of the 5 or 6 elements Lexia claims to enhance are really affected. But, Lexia still seems like a very useful tool to have, especially where technology is concerned!

  • Ryan, I just viewed the powerpoint presentation that you created for the Lexia Intervention program. I think Lexia is a good program because it allows students to work at their own pace. I liked your powerpoint because you listed research findings from the Florida Center Reading Research Center, the What Works Clearing House, and Paul Caruso. The different sizes of type face seems to work well, since it offsets certain information. Plus, I liked that you included some information on the history of Lexia. Good job! Sharon Loniak

  • I liked the background you used! very scholastic! I also think you did a good job keeping it simple so that its a good overview of the program. At the end I liked the comparisons between the claims of the company and what the studies found! Great Job-Sam McClain

  • This is Kim - Great presentation Ryan. I really liked how you gave background information and how this is used to help build all five elements of reading. I also like how you put the frequency and time that this program is used. Everything you said just was just explained very nicely!

  • Unfortunately I could not get some of the pictures to show up on my powerpoint after uploading it to this site for some reason. Most of the pictures are pictures of students using Lexia, but the most important image is on slide 3 and the link is here:

    • Lexia Learning QuickTime™ and a decompressor are needed to see this picture. A Computer-BasedSupplemental Reading Program Ryan Billingsley
    • Lexia Company Overview  Founded in 1984 by Bob Lemire for his dyslexic son, Bo  Used in more than 10,000 schools nationwide  Useful for all students, Pre-K through 12  Focuses on all 5 of the Essential Elements of Reading
    • Skills Developed QuickTime™ and a decompressor are needed to see this picture.
    • How’s it work? - Who’s it for? Lexia Reading advances reading skills development for all students pre-K through grade 4. Lexia also helps intensify and accelerate learning for at-risk students in grades 4–12. And, since it’s a computer program, progress can be supplemented by accessing the program from home too. Instruction is differentiated by skill level.
    •  The student is allowed to progress to higher units and more complex skills within an activity only when he or she has mastered basic skills. In the case of repetitive mistakes within an activity, each program branches back to include modeling and hints and provide additional practice on the specific skills that pose a challenge. Motivating visual graphics include progress bars that fill up as a student successfully completes each unit within an activity.
    • How often? Depending on skill level, and intervention type, Lexia can be used:  2-5 times a week  20-60 minutes per session
    • Research - WWC What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) is an initiative of the Department of Education that compiles research data on educational programs. The WWC found “potentially positive” effects of Lexia Reading on alphabetics and comprehension and no discernible effects on fluency and general reading achievement.
    •  Lexia is proud of the WWC’s findings because they are one of very few programs that have been deemed “potentially positive” in at least 2 of 4 measured reading skills.
    • Research - FCRR QuickTime™ and a decompressor are needed to see this picture. The Florida Center for Reading Research deemed Lexia appropriate in more categories than any other program within the FCRR review framework.
    • Research - Paul Caruso  The research of Paul Caruso shows that Lexia Learning is most effective when used with at-risk students -- and the greatest gains are consistently seen specifically in phonological awareness.  Ithas also been proven to be very useful for English Language Learners.
    • Results In one study, Paul Caruso compiled the test results of a treatment group using Lexia Reading and a control group with standard instruction. From pretest to posttest, the treatment group jumped 7.3 points on phonological awareness, while the control group improved only 3.1 points.
    • Caruso’s Data Before After Before After (Lexia) (Lexia) (Control) (Control) 8.5 15.8* 9.5 12.6 Phonological Awareness 6.1 9.2 6.3 7.6 Rhyming 2.4 6.6 3.2 5.1 Sound Match 12.9 16.3* 11.4 14.2 Listening Comprehension * Significant Gains
    • To Sum Up….What Lexia Says What the It’s For: Research Says: Students of all  At-Risk students and ELLs benefit ages and skills the most All 5 Essential  Greatest gains are Elements of seen in Reading Phonological Awareness/Phonics & Comprehension
