As many of traditional reading tests only give one dimensional, simple scores teachers often struggle to collect the in-depth information they need to back their judgements in the classroom, especially when deciding where those pupils performing at borderline levels lie.
“One of the strengths of AI is that it’s objective. But the real value lies in the huge amount of information that can be gleaned from assessing a child’s reading in this way.”
With 30 years of evidence and research, from the Institute which awards the Nobel Prize in medicine behind our method, we can already assess reading attainment with an extremely high degree of accuracy and provide teachers with entirely objective results to back their professional judgements.
“We are also planning to share the results in transition meetings where class teachers discuss pupils’ progress before they move up a year.”
Results from the Lexplore assessment can be viewed across different levels from individual pupils, year groups, classes, or whole schools making it easy to share information with parents or other teachers and engage the whole school community with reading.
“One of the key benefits of Lexplore is the analysis tool which presents assessment results clearly using visuals and graphics. This enables schools to easily share results with staff, governors and Ofsted, and Freemantle plans to use the data at parents’ evenings to engage families in their child’s reading goals.”
