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.

Test Less, Teach More™

Predict students’ risk of reading failure
The myLexia data reports provide teachers with a “Performance  Predictor” that informs them of each student’s percent chance reaching end-of-year benchmarks.  Color-coded icons signify risk  level in order to visually help teachers to quickly assess and compare  the risk of reading failure associated with their students, classes,  or schools. (Red = high risk; yellow = some risk; green = low  risk.) The Performance Predictors also provide teachers a “Prescription  of Intensity”—recommended levels of instructional intensity for each  student — designed to improve chances of reaching their end-of-year  target.
Prioritise allocation of time and resources
With access to detailed reports of school, year, class, and student  data, teachers can make informed decisions by monitoring student  progress and planning instruction based on students’ risk level and  needs, helping to prioritise limited time.  The Prescription of  Intensity that is recommended for each student allows teachers to  allocate computer time for each student, as well as additional reading  block time and use of paraprofessionals.  It also provides structured,  skill-specific lessons, called Lexia Lessons (view examples),  which offer step-by-step strategies for teachers or paraprofessionals  specific to each student’s skill-gaps.  This ensures that the  appropriate skill-gaps are being addressed with targeted resources when students are stuggling.

Monitor academic growth
The myLexia data reports provide insight into progress on a school, year, class, and student level.  The home page for each level  provides a clear, real-time snapshot of how students are progressing  toward year-level benchmarks.  Monthly change in student reading gains  is also identified, allowing teachers to monitor progress for each  student and their entire class. Administrators can also view this  change, giving them the ability to monitor reading gains over time on a  year and school level.
In order for students to accelerate foundational reading skills and  close the gap, it is important that they are meeting the recommended  minutes in the program. In the myLexia  reports, administrators have the ability to monitor class and teacher  login usage to ensure the program is being used with fidelity in order  to achieve reading success.  Identifying teacher login usage is  essential in determining whether the data is being utilised to drive  instructional decisions.
