Understanding BR Lexile® Levels
Beginning Reader (BR) Lexile® measures are like negative numbers, so a score of BR 40L would be like saying -40L. If you are trying to find the average Lexile®, and BR values are included, replace the BR with a – sign.
BR scores should not be perceived as an inability to read. Instead, it is a scale that progresses, showing growth.
