Our Story

Following 30 years of academic research at the Karolinska Institute, which has selected the Nobel Laureates in Physiology and Medicine since 1901, we first launched our unique method of measuring reading attainment in Sweden in 2015.

Our work, globally is still driven by the same overarching commitment to education and literacy upon which Lexplore was founded many years ago. Literacy skills are fundamental to so much of school life and beyond, yet many children still leave primary school unable to read well. Our mission from the start was to provide teachers with the technology, resources and information needed to identify those struggling readers early and raise attainment for all pupils. 

By combining the latest in AI and eye tracking technology, our assessment method is entirely unique! Within minutes we can provide a new and fully objective insight into literacy, with targeted interventions for emerging and fluent readers alike.

Since 2015, our assessment has undergone extensive development. Today, having conducted close to 250,000 tests across the UK, US, Europe and Africa, our assessment and interventions are helping to bridge the literacy gap, globally. As an example, our  partner in Northern Ghana, the LING Project is using our technology to improve reading ability across the female population.

Lexplore has featured prominently in the press including the BBC News and the One Show and our company has been nominated for BETT, E-Assessment and ERA awards, as well as ranked 8th in Europe’s top 50 most innovative companies.
