Frequently Asked Questions

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 5 reading assessments done in a day, but with Lexplore we can assess over 200 students in in a week with a higher level of accuracy”

What grade is Lexplore designed for?

Currently, Lexplore is used in 1st through 8th grade. Assessments for Pre-K, kindergarten and high school to adult are in development and are scheduled for release in 2021-22.

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.

What is the Karolinska Institute?

The Karolinska Institute is not only Sweden’s largest center of medical academic research but also one of the world’s foremost medical universities.

Within Sweden, they offer the largest range of medical courses, and since 1901 their Assembly has selected the Nobel laureates in Physiology or Medicine. The researchers and founders behind Lexplore still carry out their work at the Marianne Bernadotte Centre within the Institute today.

Will AI technology replace our teachers?

While our algorithms are extremely powerful, they will never be a substitute for a good teacher! Our technology simply helps free up valuable resources so teachers can spend their time doing what they do best – supporting their students.

How do eye movements reflect reading attainment?

Reading involves a complicated interplay between many different cognitive and linguistic processes. Eye movements can offer valuable insight into the complex cognitive and linguistic processes behind reading. Using the latest in eye-tracking technology to measure when, where, and how children’s eyes move in relation to the words they are reading, Lexplore can detect minor differences in the way a child’s brain processes text.

“Eye movements is one of the best ways to index reading ability at an incredibly in-depth level.”

Our Eye-Tracking assessment was developed in conjunction with more than 30 years of peer-reviewed research at one of the leading medical institutes in the world. The research focused on the unique insight that eye movements can offer into reading.

Why Lexplore?

In 3-5 minutes, Lexplore’s rapid reading tool uses AI and eye-tracking technology to assess and report a student’s reading ability with 95% accuracy. Results are available immediately in our cloud-based portal.

Our assessment is unique in its use of eye-tracking technology and audio recording, which allow educators to virtually see the text through the child’s eyes. Lexplore is a universal screening tool that identifies students with reading difficulties, those at the highest risk for reading failure (like dyslexia) and those who need to be challenged more. Lexplore provides a critical piece of universal design for reading instruction.
