Star Reading - Lexile® Measures Preference

How do I get to this page?

  1. Log in to Renaissance Place.
  2. On the Home page, select Star Reading (or Reading Assessments under Star 360 if you are using the Star 360 Suite).

  3. Select Preferences.
  4. On the Preferences page, select Edit at the end of the Lexile® Measures row.

Who can do this with default capabilities?

  • District Level Administrators: any school in the district
  • School Level Administrators: their own school

The setting of this preference determines whether the Lexile® Measure and/or the Lexile® Range will be included on certain reports.

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. BR codes are followed by a number and an L (for example, BR100L). A Lexile® Measure of BR100L indicates that the Lexile® Measure of the reader is 100 units below 0L. The smaller the number following the BR code, the more advanced the reader is. For example, a BR100L reader is more advanced than a BR150L reader.

A Lexile® Range is a scale calculated from the Lexile® Measure by subtracting 100L and adding 50L to a student's Lexile® Measure.
