What about our ESL/ELL students?

Our assessment can offer a fresh perspective when it comes to assessing students for whom English is a second language. Lexplore’s powerful and objective algorithms can account for multi-language learners and therefore produce accurate assessments for ALL learners.

” We want to root out any reading difficulties as soon as we can so we can help students make progress. Lexplore provides us with a completely unbiased way to assess our students. “

Our assessment helps teachers to identify which students find reading difficult, whatever their level of fluency in English. And importantly, highlight possible underlying reading issues that could be masked by a lack of language knowledge.

How long does the Lexplore assessment take?

Typically, 3-5 minutes depending on the child’s age and reading speed. This enables schools to quickly assess a large number of students without additional workload. The results are available immediately in our user-friendly portal with no grading required.

“One of the main reasons we chose Lexplore is because it frees up so much time. I used to get only 5 reading assessments done in a day, but with Lexplore we can assess over 50 students in one day with a higher level of accuracy”

How many students can be tested in one day?

We encourage schools to aim to test around 40 students in one school day.

How often should we screen with Lexplore each year?

Schools typically assess students at the beginning of the school year to get baseline reading abilities. Many schools engage in an RTI/MTSS model and use Lexplore as a progress monitoring tool, assessing mid-year and again toward the end of the school year. Regular testing enables teachers to closely monitor reading progress and the outcome of targeted interventions for each child.
