Lexia Reading. What Works Clearinghouse Intervention Report
What Works Clearinghouse
Lexia Reading is a computerized reading program that provides phonics instruction and gives students independent practice in basic reading skills. Lexia Reading is designed to supplement regular classroom instruction. It is designed to support skill development in the five areas of reading instruction identified by the National Reading Panel. The What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) reviewed 11 studies on Lexia Reading. Two of these studies meet WWC evidence standards. One study meets WWC evidence standards with reservations. The remaining eight studies do not meet either WWC evidence standards or eligibility screens. Based on the three studies, the WWC found potentially positive effects of Lexia Reading on alphabetics and comprehension and no discernible effects on fluency and general reading achievement. The conclusions presented in this report may change as new research emerges. Six appendices are included: (1) Study Characteristics; (2) Outcome measures for each domain; (3) Summary of study findings included in the rating for each domain; (4) Summary of subscale and subgroup findings for each domain; (5) Lexia Reading rating for each domain; and (6) Extent of evidence by domain. (Contains 7 footnotes.)
