Helps teachers with Quantitative Dimension of Text Complexity The “quantitative dimension of text complexity” refers to those aspects—such as word frequency, sentence length, and text cohesion (to name just three)— That are difficult for a human reader to evaluate when examining a text.
Mass-Adding of Lexiles DIBELS have correlation to Lexile levels “Each year, hundreds of thousands of students in grades 1-3 receive DIBELS ORF scores. By converting scores from DIBELS 6th Edition into corresponding Lexile® measures, educators and parents can match young readers with books and other materials that are targeted to their individual abilities and interests.” Source linkDIBELSlink
