Look around, explore the information and the provided links.What is a lexile and why is it important for student success? www.lexile.comA Lexile measure is a valuable piece of information about either an individual's reading ability or the difficulty of a text, like a book or magazine article. The Lexile measure is shown as a number with an "L" after it — 880L is 880 Lexile.
A student gets his or her Lexile reader measure from a reading test or program. For example, if a student receives an 880L on her end-of-grade reading test, she is an 880 Lexile reader. Higher Lexile measures represent a higher level of reading ability. A Lexile reader 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.What is a math quantile measure and why is it important to student success? www.quantiles.comThe Quantile Framework is a scale that describes a student's mathematical achievement and the difficulty of specific mathematical skills and concepts.
