This month's webinar focused on using The Lexile® Framework for Reading to match text and readers, as well as how Lexile® scores are used in myON. If you missed the webinar, want to share it with your team, or just want to review some of the aspects we discussed, you can check out the recording.

The Lexile® Framework is a scientific approach to reading measurement that matches readers to text. As such, it m
easures both reader ability and text difficulty on the same scale.  Using this system of measurement we can quickly calibrates the difficulty of most any textual material with a high degree of accuracy.

The Lexile measure of a book is an excellent starting point for a student’s book selection. However, the book’s Lexile measure should not be the only factor in a student’s book selection process.

If you want to learn more about Lexile® scores and how to use them to support your students, we have included two articles with this post:
  • Not So Common: Comparing Lexile® Measures With the  Standards’ Other Text Complexity Tools is a publication by Metametrics to explain how the Lexile® Framework compares with other text complexity tools.
  • Beyond the Classroom was published in the ALA magazine "Knowledge Quest"
