There may be a new bit of information showing up on your child’s report card called Lexile Levels or Lexile Score. Confused? Well let me demystify it for you.
The Lexile system helps to find the right reading material for the right level they should be reading on. There are different assessments that the student is given to discover their level. This is a huge benefit because students are matched on their reading level rather than their grade level.
Lexile Levels are then put in place to help monitor the students progress. You can learn more about the Lexile System in this article by Understood.org.
