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.
  • Scores below 0L are prefixed with "BR" for Beginning Reader. For these scores, the higher the number is, the lower the actual score is: for example, a score of BR200L is lower than BR100L.

For the following reports, you can choose whether to include Lexile® measures:

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.
