3 An Analogy: Lexiles are like inches… A universal, accurate measurement system Used to measure a student’s current “size” and growth over time Not grade specific - students come in different sizes and grow at different rates

4 The Lexile Framework ® for Reading Allows us to… reader ability text readability Lexiles Measure reader ability and text readability with a common metric: Lexiles comprehension Forecast the level of comprehension a reader is expected to experience with a particular text

6 Forecasted Comprehension Rates Reader measure – text calibration = O Lexiles 75% comprehension rate Reader measure – text calibration = -250 Lexiles 50% comprehension rate Reader measure – text calibration = +250 Lexiles 90% comprehension rate

8 Text Demand Level by Grade  Lexile researchers analyzed representative grade level texts to determine the text demands for different grade levels.  Students’ Lexile measures can help predict how well they will be able to comprehend the texts they will face. Grade in School Typical Text Demand (from Lexile Research & Map) 7th Grade950L to 1075L 8th Grade1000L to 1100L 9th Grade1050L to 1150L 10th Grade1100L to 1200L 11th and 12th Grade1100L to 1300L Beyond High School Average Text Demand (from Lexile Research) Military (training/field manuals) 1180L Citizenship (newspapers, voting, jury) 1230L Workplace (workplace study materials) 1260L Postsecondary - first two yrs (textbooks) 1355L
