What is a Lexile Measure? A Lexile measure is a valuable piece of information about either an individual's reading ability or the difficulty of a text. The Lexile measure is shown as a number with an "L" after it. For example, 880L is 880 Lexile.
How are Lexile levels assigned? A student gets his or her Lexile reader measure from a reading test or program like the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI). A book, article, or an excerpt from a text gets a Lexile text measure based on two strong predictors of how difficult a text is to comprehend: vocabulary and sentence length. When a Lexile text measure matches a Lexile reader measure, this is called a "targeted" reading experience.

Plan frequent library outings to select independent reading. Sign graded work and have child return it to the teacher.
