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.

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.

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 can I see the technology in action?

A quick online demonstration gives you the opportunity to explore our assessment and results portal, ask any questions you might have, and find out how Lexplore could work for your school.

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.
