    (75% forecasted comprehension)

    Targeted Comprehension = 75%Independent Reading

    21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change!WVDE SETLA 2009

  • 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change!WVDE SETLA 2009Why 75% Comprehension?Research suggests that at 75%A reader can have a successful reading experience without frustration or boredomA reader can achieve functional comprehension of the textA reader will be sufficiently challenged (by vocabulary and syntax)

    75% is the right amount of challenge

    21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change!WVDE SETLA 2009

  • 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change!WVDE SETLA 2009Managing ComprehensionReaders can experience frustration when - Text readability is over 50L above their Lexile level

    Readers can experience ease whenText readability is over 100L below their Lexile levelTargeted text range of 100L below to 50L above the students Lexile level

  • 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change!WVDE SETLA 2009Recommendations:Use a Lexile range that is from 50L above your student's Lexile measure to 100L below to ensure that s/he has a successful reading experience.

    Enter keywords to find books that match his/her interests. The key here is to get your student reading.

    Select books with the Lexile range that you are looking for (either for an individual student or a group)

  • 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change!WVDE SETLA 2009Lexile Scavenger HuntYour mission.........Answer the 7 questions

    21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change!WVDE SETLA 2009

    *The purpose of Lexiles includes:Their potential to improve reading skills and motivate students to read; andUsing Lexiles to differentiate instruction, select appropriate student reading materials and discuss student progress in reading.

    **This is what makes Lexiles so uniqueit measures the readers ability and the text readability on the same scale, in the same units which are called Lexiles. *A higher Lexile reader measure represents a higher level of reading ability on the Lexile scale. A higher Lexile on the text measure means more difficult text (semantic difficulty + syntactic complexity).**These are examples of text difficulty. Arthur books fall within the Lexile range of a typical second grader. These books have shorter sentences and words appear frequently.

    Books in the Harry Potter series, Little Women, and Don Quixote contain longer sentences and more complex words.

    ***The Lexile Map provides a graphic representation of novels, nonfiction books and textbooks matched to appropriate levels of reading ability. The titles on the Lexile map are not recommended books, nor should they be viewed as a reading list. Lexiles target students to books where the student is expected to have 75 percent comprehension. The Lexile map makes it easy to see how reading develops and to help guide students to appropriately challenging reading materials.

    There is no direct correspondence between a specific Lexile measure and a specific grade level. Within any classroom or grade, there will be a range of readers and a range of reading materials. For example, in a fifth-grade classroom there will be some readers who are ahead of the typical reader (about 250L above) and some readers who are behind the typical reader (about 250L below). To say that some books are just right for fifth graders assumes that all fifth graders are reading at the same level. The Lexile Framework for Reading is intended to match readers with texts at whatever level the reader is reading. *How do Lexiles improve instruction in the classroom? Lets view some books and their Lexile measures*(Allow a few seconds to look over slide)*(Allow a few seconds to look over slide)*(Allow a few seconds to look over the slide)*And a few more. (Allow a few seconds to look over slide)*

    (Allow a few seconds to look over slide)*For West Virginia, a state information page, under the resource section of the Lexile site, is available. The ACT Explore in the 8th grade, the ACT Plan in 10th grade and the WESTEST 2 (in spring 2009) give student Lexile measures. This fall the WVDE On-line IEP will provide student Lexile measures along with the assessment data.

    **This is an 11th grade mock up of the new WESTEST 2 report. The Office of Assessment gave us this mock up so that you can see where the Lexile and Quantile measures will be addressed. The red circle indicates that position and the black arrow points out the explanation of Lexiles. Remember this is just a mock up of the report and it has not been finalized.Just a re...
