Lexile® Measures Preference

Who can do this with default capabilities?

School Network Administrators, School Network Staff, School Administrators

The setting of this preference determines whether the Lexile® Measure and/or the Lexile® Range will be included on certain reports (see "Related Topics" sidebar for a list).

A Lexile® Measure represents a student's reading ability:

  • The Lexile® Measure is shown as a number with an "L" after it: 750L is 750 Lexile.
  • Higher Lexile® Measures indicate higher levels of reading ability. A Lexile® Measure can range from below 200L for emergent readers to above 1600L for advanced readers.
  • Readers who score below 0L receive a BR for Beginning Reader. BR codes are followed by a number and an L (for example, BR100L). A Lexile® Measure of BR100L indicates that the Lexile® Measure of the reader is 100 units below 0L. The smaller the number following the BR code, the more advanced the reader is. For example, a BR100L reader is more advanced than a BR150L reader.

A Lexile® Range is a scale calculated from the Lexile® Measure by subtracting 100L and adding 50L to a student's Lexile® Measure.

  1. Click Star Reading on the Home page, then click Preferences.

  4. In the pop-up window, click Yes to include the Lexile® Measure and the Lexile® Range on certain reports, or No to exclude them.
