Lexile Question #1 What does Lexile measure? Both text difficulty and reader comprehension Lexile Question #2 How does Lexile measure text? By evaluating syntactic complexity and semantic difficulty Lexile Question #3 How are student Lexile scores determined?

They are assessed through the MAP Reading test, linked to the RIT scale, though not a direct equivalency because literal comprehension and vocabulary skills are more heavily weighted in arriving at the Lexile scores Lexile Question #4 Where can student Lexile scores be found? On the Teacher and Class Reading Reports, the Online Individual Student Progress Report, in the Dynamic Reporting Suite Teacher Lexile Report and Student Booklist Report Lexile Question #5

What are three things Lexile doesnt evaluate? Any of these: genre, quality, theme, interest of student in topic, developmental appropriateness of content for the reader Lexile Doesnt Evaluate Genre: New genres may need more teacher support. Theme: A low/high Lexile score doesnt mean the books theme is appropriate for children.

Content: New content or topics may need to have new vocabulary and concepts pre-taught. Interest: Students may successfully read more difficult text if the material is of high-interest to them. Quality: Lexile doesnt evaluate how well-written or engaging a book will be. 10
