Core 5 Best Practices to support student literacy skills

Here are some best practices for using Core 5 in your classroom:
  • Meet the target number of online minutes per week
  • Analyze which students are struggling by checking myLexia at least 2x weekly: which need usage, and to analyze progress
  • Intervene with struggling students using Lexia Lessons
  • Reinforce online learning using Lexia Skill Builders
  • Celebrate student progress with Achievement Certificates

Last RAPID/CORE 5 Assessment - Due Date Information

  • The window is open from April 1st - June 15th.
  • There must be at least 6 weeks between the Winter and Spring Administration (the last day of Winter administration was March 2nd).
  • Kinder, 1st-grade and 2nd-grade teachers are not required to administer the optional comprehension portions of the RAPID Screener.
  • Ideally, all students will have completed the RAPID Screener before the final PD (April 30, May 1st, or May 2nd). We will look at the data together and this PD will be much more meaningful with 3 data points.
