Access Arrangements and Examinations!

Here at Lexplore we are often asked about how our test can assist in providing additional evidence for Access Arrangements. Lexplore can indeed provide an overview of a pupil’s reading skills, thereby giving a sense of the candidate’s abilities and/ or specifically provide information to meet specific criteria. ..

Reading beyond the classroom!

When teaching children to read, we build upon their early knowledge of language acquired through their interactions and experiences. If children do not grow up in language rich environments, they can often find it difficult to keep up with their peers who do, especially when it comes to learning to read.
Within schools we can provide children with many opportunities to develop their enthusiasm for reading, however, it is just as important to ensure that children’s home environments also support their literacy development…

What if a pupil does not have English as a first language?

Our assessment can offer a fresh perspective when it comes to assessing pupils with English as an additional language. With powerful and objective algorithms able to take this into account during their analysis, it 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 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 which could be masked by a lack of language knowledge.

How do teachers become certified examiners?

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.

How do eye movements reflect reading attainment?

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.

How long does the Lexplore assessment take?

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 what age can a child sit the Lexplore assessment?

At the minute our assessment is for primary children in years 2 to 5, however, our team is currently in the process of carrying out a verification project for years 6 , 7 , 8 and 9.

If you are interested in Lexplore for different age groups including years 6 , 7 , 8 and 9 do get in touch with our team. There are plenty of opportunities for schools to get involved with our project and access exclusive early bird offers.
