Lexile® Measure

A Lexile® Measure represents a student's reading ability:

  • The Lexile® Measure is shown as a number with an "L" after it: 750L is 750 Lexile®.
  • Higher Lexile® Measures indicate higher levels of reading ability. A Lexile® Measure can range from below 200L for emergent readers to above 1600L for advanced readers.
  • Readers who score below 0L receive a BR for Beginning Reader.

Depending on the report options selected, this score may appear on these reports:

Lexile® Measures below BR400L are shown on these reports for progress monitoring purposes only. A score below BR400L should not be used to match readers with text; in these cases, a Lexile® Range will not be reported.
