Lexplore

  • Analysis of results with updated and improved analysis model. 

    Recently, our research and development team made two important breakthroughs that enhance our ability to accurately map pupil's Reading Ability
  1. Mapping Pupil Reading Ability. Previously, Lexplore analysed and presented Fluency and Language Comprehension separately. In February we launched an updated analysis model allowing these two components to be analysed and presented together. Combined this way, they determine percentile.  
  2. Beginning in the fall of 2020, we were able to include data from students in grade 1 (UK 2), giving us a more extensive foundation for analysis.  As such, we are able to provide a more precise and exact presentation of the percentile.  Read more: Distribution of percentiles

Lexplore Results Portal

  • Review needed by Examiner
    • A new message "Review needed by Examiner" appears when a saved testing session deviates from the norm. We instruct the examiners to review the saved recordings and then either:
  • Importing of users
  • Reading material in Lexplore intensive; from text to speech.
    • When a pupil is reading from the Lexplore intensive reading material they can now get assistance with the pronunciation of a word. Touch or tap a word and the computer will read it aloud.
