|Lexia Efficacy Research Meets the Highest Standards of Evidence as Defined by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)|
As educators across the country strive to align their instructional plans with the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Lexia Learning, a
ESSA requires Title I schools to utilize evidence-based instructional programs that have demonstrated positive effects on student learning outcomes. This focus on efficacy has established a more rigorous standard for proving what’s working in classrooms and helps schools, districts, and states to shape the future of teaching and learning. Lexia, with a 30-year history of efficacy research, has multiple studies demonstrating the strongest level of evidence according to ESSA legislation.
ESSA legislation categorizes evidence into three different levels: Strong, Moderate and Promising. Lexia has eight studies with Strong evidence—the highest level of rigor defined by ESSA—and an additional seven studies with Moderate or Promising evidence.
“The requirements of ESSA underscore the approach Lexia has taken for more than three decades,” said Lexia President Nick Gaehde. “Educators should have confidence that the instructional resources they choose will deliver a statistically significant impact on student outcomes; and Lexia’s 15 efficacy studies not only satisfy the requirements under ESSA, but provide scientific evidence of our programs’ effectiveness.”
