What Does it Cost?
The following fees apply for each certified Lexile® measure:
Scanning fee: 0.25 cents per page2
1. The standard processing fee is $25 for digital text. This also includes a perpetual license to use the Lexile measure.
2. There is an option to have your text converted into an electronic document format suitable for analysis. This includes professional scanning and OCR conversion of print-based materials into an electronic document format.
Other Rates and Fees:
Textbooks and Workbooks: In addition to the basic fees, a rate of $25 per 50 pages is required to process each textbook or workbook submitted for Lexile analysis.
Articles, selections and passages: Measurement fees for text types other than books vary based on requirements, as well as the publisher's use of the Lexile measure.
Rush Fees: Expedited processing is available at a per-text rush fee for measurement projects requiring a turnaround time of less than 25 days.
Transcription Services: If transcription of a hard-copy text is necessary due to extensive use of graphical fonts or highly illustrative layouts, an additional rate of $25 per 30 minutes of work will be assessed. (This rate supersedes the basic fee for scanner-based conversion services.)
Special Handling: To accommodate non-standard file submissions, an editorial rate of $25 per 30 minutes of work may be charged. The option of resubmitting files in a standard format will be given prior to assessing these fees.
