“Thanks to Lexplore we now have a rigorous and quick method of assessing children’s reading ability and the methods they use in order to decode text. We can assess children without adding to the work load of the class teachers, with the intention of also providing effective interventions for the teachers again without creating unnecessary admin.
We will be able to quickly and confidently identify problem areas where interventions may be necessary working in depth on the pedagogies of reading. Lexplore has given us the tools for tracking the progress of these interventions over time displaying it in a very tangible way.
The process of screening pupils could not be easier and often is a very enjoyable experience for the pupils. The training is very thorough and contact with the company is easy and available at all times if any questions or problems should occur.
The portal is very clear, straight forward and is easy to use and understand. The data is displayed in a very visual manner giving an overview at a glance. Being able to see the child’s eye movements has been fascinating, insightful and at times mesmerising. The assessment has helped highlight students with optical impairments or pupils that may require reading glasses, based on their eye movement.
I feel that our knowledge of what makes a ‘strong’ reader has really been improved thanks to the scientific methods used by Lexplore.”
