Frequently Asked Questions

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.

More about the research

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.

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.

To find out how you can utilize the benefits of technology in the classroom by combining new advances with the ‘human touch’ of good teachers, download our FREE AI -Guide.

How do we secure your data?

Access to data through the Results Portal is only granted through a strong two-step authentication process. We can grant individuals within a school or organization access to the results on different levels, so they are provided with only the relevant data they require.

We have also implemented appropriate safeguards in order to protect all the personal data that we process. More information can be found in our GDPR Policy or you can contact data.privacy@lexplore.com to find out more.

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.
