Advantages of Using Lexiles Lexile measures are based on your child alone, not on other children. Lexile measures should make it easier for your child to focus on what they read. The Lexile Framework will improve communication between you and your childs teacher. The Lexile website can help your child find books that they want to read. (Show Lexile site and Book Find)
What about Lexile Measure and Grade Equivalents The Lexile score represents a student's level on a developmental scale. Grade equivalents are from a norm referenced test, like the ITBS, and represents a student's ability level in comparison to other students who were also tested at that same grade level.
What About Accelerated Reader? AR measures books in a different way from Lexile. Like Lexile it too, matches books with a students reading level. STAR Reader determines the AR level of your child.
