Lexia Learning, A Rosetta Stone Company, is one of the best-known and most highly respected reading-technology companies in the world. Founded more than 30 years ago with private funding and grants obtained from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, our products are now used by more than two million students. From the very beginning, Lexia has been committed to gold-standard efficacy research, growing our research team every year.
This session will provide the story of Lexia’s research program, from a single classroom research site to over 150 classrooms we have as research sites today. Using examples from our own work, Lexia researchers with one of our research partners, will discuss promising research in the domain of personalized learning as well as share practical tips on how to use existing research to inform the design of new products, what to look for when evaluating the research base of educational product, and how to partner with educators to conduct research studies of your own.
Whether you are a new company trying to conduct your own research, a teacher or administrator trying to understand if your programs are working, an edtech enthusiast looking for proof of what works (or all three) this session will have valuable takeaways for you!
