Juniper Education has announced a new partnership with Lexplore Analytics to provide schools with a cutting-edge reading assessment, which uses eye-tracking and AI technology to quickly identify potential issues with reading in children as young as six.
The Dekko technique encourages children to focus on the things they love. It shows them how to be creative and have fun with subject matter that they might struggle to engage with. Dekko’s educational comics turn school curriculum content into engaging and accessible material, helping to smash barriers to reading and learning. The comics are colourful, funny and especially helpful to visual learners and those living with dyslexia, ADHD and autism.
As schools begin opening their doors again after many weeks of lockdown, it seems natural to focus on returning to familiar routines and getting pupils back up to speed with their learning. But as discussed by Dave Whyley in his recent EdWire Article, Covid-19 has changed the face of education and formal learning needs to wait!
Within each pupil’s results teachers can find our guidelines for intervention which offer simple recommendations, activities and resources tailored to a child’s reading level to help build their skills in each reading component. Teachers can also find more free materials and guides in our Lexources Corner which help turn our objective results into personalised learning plans for each child.
We are also in the process of launching Lexplore Intensive, a new reading training programme with free material specially designed for each child’s specific reading level. Get in touch with out team to find out more…
For more in depth interventions our team of SEN Consultants, reading specialists, and partner companies can help when it comes to referrals, and classroom or reading support.
Our assessment can offer a fresh perspective when it comes to assessing pupils with English as an additional language. With powerful algorithms, able to provide fully objective results, we can offer the same exciting insight into reading regardless of children’s different backgrounds and situations.
“We want to root out any reading difficulties as soon as we can so we can help pupils make progress. Lexplore Analytics provides us with a completely unbiased way to assess our children”
Our assessment helps teachers to identify which pupils find reading difficult regardless of their fluency in English. And importantly, highlight possible underlying reading issues that could be masked by a lack of language knowledge.
As a Lexplore Customer, we will visit your school or organisation to carry out the theoretical and practical Training needed for your staff members to test children independently. The technology and method is extremely simple to set up and understand meaning the training process is usually completed in one or two days.
Reading involves a complicated interplay between many different cognitive and linguistic processes. Measuring when, where, and how a child’s eyes move in relation to the words they read allows us to quickly evaluate how effectively these processes work together, and pick up on minor differences in the way their brains process text on lexical, syntactic and structural levels.
“Eye movements is one of the best ways to index reading ability at an incredibly in-depth level.”
Our Eye Tracking assessment has been developed following over 30 years of peer reviewed research at one of the leading medical institutes in the world into the unique insight eye movements can offer us into reading.
A quick 30 minute 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.
We also have lots of exciting exhibitions and conferences lined up where you can meet the Lexplore team and see our assessment at an event near you.
We estimate that the assessment takes between two and five minutes per child depending upon their reading speed. This enables schools to quickly assess a large number of pupils without additional workload. The results are available immediately in our user-friendly portal with no marking required.
“One of the main reasons we chose Lexplore is because it frees up so much time. Previously, it took teachers an entire term to do accurate assessments on their whole class. By contrast, 200 children went through the Lexplore assessment process in a week. Within five minutes of each assessment we had the results of their reading activity and an accurate attainment level.”
At the minute our assessment is for primary and secondary children in years 2 to 9.
If you are interested in Lexplore for different age groups do get in touch with our team. There are plenty of opportunities for schools and organisations to get involved with our development projects and access exclusive early bird offers.
