The Kyra Research School Pilot, involved 8 schools trialling our primary program, Core5, with one also using PowerUp to target secondary age pupils. The data included in the following report has been anonymised and breaks down the measured progress and usage for a varying number of students across participating schools over a six month period.

Lexia is an extremely thorough and in-depth program using all the learning tools that are needed to ensure the children have covered online learning and applying the skills to classroom-based activities and in a class of 32 children, it's like having 32 teachers who are fully engaged and personalising the learning for all the children.
Our pupils have enthusiastically participated in Lexia's engaging personalised reading scheme, both at school and at home and have made good progress. They have been motivated to learn each of the various skills needed to become fluent readers.
Lexia is what we have been waiting for and now we are “living the reading dream,” as one of my Year 6 students said about the program!
We have been delighted with the progress made by our pupils and can see the benefit in continuing with whole year groups as well as using it for targeted interventions.
"My Year 1 children have really enjoyed accessing Lexia. They look forward to going on this program and have even used it at home in their own time. It differentiates all my children and provides detailed lesson plans for children who are struggling. I would thoroughly recommend this to schools."
"We undertook a trial period of the program and engaged students with below age-related English skills. During the trial, we found that the students engaged well with the program, particularly students who can find learning in the classroom a challenge. Disaffected students engaged well with the program and their progress is evident."
"If you can imagine all the initiatives, resources and programs that are out there where companies try to put a hard sell on us and then have very little after sale support, you [Lexia] blow them out of the water. Your manner and genuine support mean a lot to us."
"The majority of pupils using PowerUp are making more than expected progress in their reading ages and are becoming more confident readers."
“The reports are an instant visual for progress from where the children started to where they are now and seeing the visual graphs to show how the children have progressed is really useful."
"I firmly believe that the program helped and supported Year 6 to get the great results which they achieved in all areas of the English related SATs."
