The Lexile® Framework for Reading



A Lexile® measure indicates the reading level of an individual or a book. By comparing a student's Lexile® measure with the Lexile® measure of a book, you can decide whether its text demand will be too difficult, too easy or just right for the student's reading ability. To best strengthen his or her reading skills, the student should read books within his or her Lexile® range.
