 >    The Lexile Framework® for Reading

A Lexile is a unit for measuring text difficulty and reader comprehension. MetaMetrics, developer of The
Lexile Framework® for Reading, was the first organization to take readability of text and comprehension
of students and put the two together. By expressing these two functions on the same scale, teachers and
parents are better able to target and personalize reading selections.

Lexile scores are linked to Reading Rasch unIT (RIT) scores. Lexile is reported on an equal-interval
scale, similar to the RIT scale. 10L is at the low end of the scale and 1700L is at the high end. Books for
beginning readers are listed as BR on the scale. The Lexile range is included on several NWEA reports.
It allows educators and parents to find appropriately challenging books, periodicals, and other reading
material for students.

Teachers may print the appropriate Reading Pathfinder for each student. The pathfinders are also useful
for parent conferences and for making reading recommendations.

The Lexile web site can be accessed at www.lexile.com for more information.

 students and put the two together. By expressing these two functions on the same scale, teachers and parents

 The Reading Pathfinder list printed below is a collection of literature titles customized to match the reading
 achievement of your student. According to your student’s score on the NWEA Reading Achievement Level
 Test or Measure of Academic Progress, he or she should be able to read any of these titles at an appropriate
 level of challenge. All of the books on the list are generally available at local schools, public libraries, and
 bookstores.

 The Reading Pathfinder list provides a general guide to the age appropriateness of specific titles by noting
 whether the materials are intended for students in the elementary (E) grades K-5, middle (M) grades 6-8, or
 high (H) school grades 9-12.

 Research shows that reading for as little as 20 minutes a day can help children become better readers and
 better students. By reading regularly, skills developed during the school year can be maintained or even
 improved.

 A Lexile measure refers to text readability only—therefore parents/educators are encouraged to preview
 books that a child reads to make sure they are at the appropriate development level for the child and also
 meet community standards.

 Please encourage your child to read more this school year.

 Research shows that reading for as little as 20 minutes a day can help children become better readers and
 better students. By reading regularly, skills developed during the school year can be maintained or even
 improved.

 A Lexile measure refers to text readability only—therefore parents/educators are encouraged to preview
 books that a child reads to make sure they are at the appropriate development level for the child and also
 meet community standards.

 Please encourage your child to read more this school year.

 A Lexile is a unit for measuring text difficulty and reader comprehension. MetaMetrics, developer of The
 Lexile Framework® for Reading, was the first organization to take readability of text and comprehension of
 students and put the two together. By expressing these two functions on the same scale, teachers and parents
 are better able to target and personalize reading selections.

 The Reading Pathfinder list printed below is a collection of literature titles customized to match the reading
 achievement of your student. According to your student’s score on the NWEA Reading Achievement Level
 Test or Measure of Academic Progress, he or she should be able to read any of these titles at an appropriate
 level of challenge. All of the books on the list are generally available at local schools, public libraries, and
 bookstores.

 The Reading Pathfinder list provides a general guide to the age appropriateness of specific titles by noting
 whether the materials are intended for students in the elementary (E) grades K-5, middle (M) grades 6-8, or
 high (H) school grades 9-12.

 Research shows that reading for as little as 20 minutes a day can help children become better readers and
 better students. By reading regularly, skills developed during the school year can be maintained or even
 improved.

 A Lexile measure refers to text readability only—therefore parents/educators are encouraged to preview
 books that a child reads to make sure they are at the appropriate development level for the child and also
 meet community standards.

 Please encourage your child to read more this school year.

 Research shows that reading for as little as 20 minutes a day can help children become better readers and
 better students. By reading regularly, skills developed during the school year can be maintained or even
 improved.

 A Lexile measure refers to text readability only—therefore parents/educators are encouraged to preview
 books that a child reads to make sure they are at the appropriate development level for the child and also
 meet community standards.

 Please encourage your child to read more this school year.

 A Lexile is a unit for measuring text difficulty and reader comprehension. MetaMetrics, developer of The
 Lexile Framework® for Reading, was the first organization to take readability of text and comprehension of
 students and put the two together. By expressing these two functions on the same scale, teachers and parents
 are better able to target and personalize reading selections.

 The Reading Pathfinder list printed below is a collection of literature titles customized to match the reading
 achievement of your student. According to your student’s score on the NWEA Reading Achievement Level
 Test or Measure of Academic Progress, he or she should be able to read any of these titles at an appropriate
 level of challenge. All of the books on the list are generally available at local schools, public libraries, and
 bookstores.

 The Reading Pathfinder list provides a general guide to the age appropriateness of specific titles by noting
 whether the materials are intended for students in the elementary (E) grades K-5, middle (M) grades 6-8, or
 high (H) school grades 9-12.

 A Lexile is a unit for measuring text difficulty and reader comprehension. MetaMetrics, developer of The
 Lexile Framework® for Reading, was the first organization to take readability of text and comprehension of
 students and put the two together. By expressing these two functions on the same scale, teachers and parents
 are better able to target and personalize reading selections.

 The Reading Pathfinder list printed below is a collection of literature titles customized to match the reading
 achievement of your student. According to your student’s score on the NWEA Reading Achievement Level
 Test or Measure of Academic Progress, he or she should be able to read any of these titles at an appropriate
 level of challenge. All of the books on the list are generally available at local schools, public libraries, and
 bookstores.

 The Reading Pathfinder list provides a general guide to the age appropriateness of specific titles by noting
 whether the materials are intended for students in the elementary (E) grades K-5, middle (M) grades 6-8, or
 high (H) school grades 9-12.
