Frequently Asked Questions

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.

Can Lexplore save us money?

Yes, it can. Late detection of reading difficulties is costly.  Children left unidentified who fail to read in 3rd grade will fail to read in 12th grade.  Late identification results in lengthy and costly special education intervention. By using Lexplore, reading difficulties can be detected early, promoting early intervention.  Learn more about how Lexplore can be funded by state and federal funding by clicking here.

What are the bubbles and lines I’m seeing in the recording?

The bubbles are called fixations. The lines are saccades. We all use a combination of fixations (stopping on a piece of text) and saccades (moving across the text) when reading. A strong, efficient reader tends to have smaller fixations and longer saccades, with very few regressions (backward saccades). A weaker, less efficient reader tends to have much longer fixations and much shorter saccades, with more regressions.

Do you have any marketing collateral that I can share with my colleagues?

Yes, click here for FREE Resources. You will find handouts and other valuable materials to share. The demo link is also very helpful and shows Lexplore in 40 seconds. We would love to schedule a LIVE demo either via Zoom or onsite with your team. Please click here to email us.

What is Machine Learning?

Machine learning is a sub-area within artificial intelligence that aims to develop programs and systems which can adapt to resolve complex problems through available data and experience rather than rules and instructions. The algorithms and methods used within machine learning are data-driven and based upon statistical calculations. For systems developed with machine learning, such as ours, the more data that there is available to train the algorithms, the better equipped the system is to resolve tasks.

What is Artificial Intelligence ?

Artificial intelligence generally refers to computers and software which can resolve complex tasks and recognize connections that normally require cognitive ability on a human level.
