A computer-adaptive screener and diagnostic tool for grades K-12
What it helps with:
In order to increase the flexibility and efficiency with which districts and schools can administer adaptive reading assessment, Lexia Learning, a Rosetta Stone company, has made the Lexia RAPID Assessment™ literacy program available on iPad with the RAPID iOS app. The computer-adaptive screener and diagnostic tool for grades K-12 is now available on the App Store.
How does it fit in:
Morgen Owings Elementary School in the state of Washington is one of the many schools that have benefitted from how RAPID’s immediately available data empowers their teachers to align literacy instruction to address students’ identified strengths and weaknesses in word recognition, academic language, and reading comprehension. “Just like in many schools and districts around the country – we too, had assessment fatigue and frustration over which was the best method for evaluating reading progress,” said Principal Heidi Busk. “What we now know is that when assessments are properly administered and integrated into instruction, the resulting data can provide teachers with valuable information to support student learning, and this is what Lexia has given us.”
