For Primary Schools…

In the primary classroom, our technology can help to provide an invaluable insight into children’s reading and help to pinpoint literacy barriers at the earliest opportunity.

The tests showed one of our KS2 girls was finding reading difficult but this was something we hadn’t spotted before. She had developed effective coping strategies to manage those difficulties, we hadn’t realised that she needed support.

We all know that the early identification of reading difficulties can transform a child’s whole educational experience. However, the complexity of reading is often underestimated, and specific difficulties are not always easy to spot.  It is estimated that around 148,000 pupils still leave primary school every year unable to read!

The key to early identification and tailored intervention rests on effective and accurate assessment, however, with many traditional assessments look at the reading components in isolation of one another, it can take time for teachers to build a true picture of each pupil’s reading and identify those experiencing specific difficulties.  Even then, discovering exactly which area of reading a child struggles with can be difficult; especially when assessments often only provide standard scores.

Current reading assessments are simply not good enough. When we look at a standard test score in isolation, it tells us a child can’t read. It doesn’t tell us why that child can’t read. Lexplore Analytics gives us much more than a simple score or percentile.

Lexplore Analytics can help to offer an entirely new perspective on children’s reading with the first fully objective reading assessment, which by combining the latest in AI and eye tracking technology, can analyse a child’s skills across key reading components, determine their attainment, and highlight specific difficulties in a matter of minutes.

With immediate, objective and in-depth results, teachers can then determine which students require extra support much earlier in their education and help all pupils develop a lifelong love of reading at the start of their education.

Lexplore is an excellent tool for assessing whether pupils require extra time in SATs tests. You can quickly determine whether they are reading quickly enough and know you will have an accurate, objective answer alongside the evidence base to prove this.
