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 setting of the Lexile® measures Preference, this score will appear on these reports: Annual Progress Report, Diagnostic Report, Growth Report, Instructional Planning - Student Report,  Screening Report, State Standards - Student Report, Student Progress Monitoring Report, Summary Report, and the Test Record Report.
