Two kinds of dyslexic tests are combined by Lexercise: the San Diego Quick Assessment and the Z-Screener. A video showing how the test works is embedded on the page just before the test is started, giving an insight as to how parents should conduct the test.
The parent guides the child throughout the test. They should both sit in front of the computer while a series of syllables that do not make sense are displayed on the screen. The child should read the syllables and the parent must record the answers of the child regardless of whether it is correct or incorrect. In addition, the parent should also note if the child made no response because he or she did not know the answer.
In the next part of the test, the computer displays a series of commonly used words. As with the previous part, the child attempts to read the words while the parent records the response. The test stops when the child finishes reading the words that correspond to his or her reading level. This feature prevents the child from reading words that are beyond his or her reading level.
Next, the parent supplies the child’s name and grade level and then submits the responses. After a few seconds, the results are shown and these help the parents decide whether the child needs other evaluations for dyslexia and other similar learning problems.
The company can also help the parent(s) contact a language expert who can help the child learn to how to read with ease. The website also has other software that can be used by the child as a supplement for his or her learning therapy.
