The Parent Report, which is available in English or Spanish, presents a student's test results from the most recent testing session for the student's parents or guardians.

Parents can also be given access to Renaissance Place, allowing them to print this report from home.

Each student's report is printed on a separate page and shows the students name, grade, teacher, class, and ID. The report includes a detailed comparison to scores on the national level; it shows the Grade Equivalent (GE), Percentile Rank (PR), Percentile Rank range, Instructional Reading Level (IRL), and Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD). Depending on the setting of the Lexile® Measures Preference, the Lexile® Range may also be shown. The parent report is generated in an easy-to-read letter format with sections for a teacher's signature and additional comments about the student's performance.
