“Students reading at all levels saw greater gains on the DIBELS assessment after using Lexia Reading Core5®, a blended learning reading program, compared to students that did not. In fact, their reading ability grew by 12 percentage points. These early gains are encouraging and we expect to see greater growth as we continue to scale our blended learning work.”
