Following 30 years of academic research at the Karolinska Institute, which has selected the Nobel laureates in Physiology and Medicine since 1901, we first launched our unique method of assessing reading in Sweden in 2015. After a successful entrance into the US in 2017, we then launched in the UK early in 2018.
Our work is still driven by the same overarching commitment to education upon which Lexplore was founded many years ago, however, our assessment has undergone much further development, making it even more useful for enabling schools to closely monitor and evaluate reading progress. Today, having conducted more than 10,000 tests across all three countries, we have received lots of media attention and several awards.
With a widely recognised correlation between literacy, attainment, and behaviour, teachers work tirelessly to improve reading attainment. However, many current methods of assessing reading don’t take into account the full range of complex cognitive processes involved. This means it can take lots of time for teachers to collect the in depth information they need to back up their professional jusgements
Our unique assessment is based upon established, and peer reviewed research into the relationship between reading difficulties and eye movements. In a matter of minutes, it can precisely determine a child’s reading attainment, and help teachers identify those experiencing difficulties at a stage before they have even developed their full communication skills.
