Lexile® Measure

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.

Depending on the setting of the Lexile® Measures Preference, this score will appear on these reports: Annual Progress Report, Diagnostic Report, Growth Report, Screening Report, Student Progress Monitoring Report, Summary Report and the Test Record Report.
