Lexile Framework Parent Information

The Lexile Framework for Reading is a scientific approach that places both the reader and the text on the same developmental scale, making it easy to connect your child with books targeted to their reading ability. Your child receives a Lexile reading measure from a test at school or a state assessment. A Lexile reading measure can range from below 0L for early reader to above 2000L for advanced readers. Readers who score below 0L receive a BR for Beginning Reader. If you don't know your child's Lexile leave, please ask their teacher.  Student and parents should look for reading material within a reading comprehension "sweet spot" of 100L below to 50L above their recorded Lexile measure. Reading materials in this range will provide an ideal level of challenge while maintaining comprehension.
