The Lexile Framework as an Approach for Reading Measurement and Success
The Lexile Framework for Reading is an innovative approach to reading comprehension that can be implemented by educators, parents and readers of all ages. Lexile measures, as components of the Lexile scale, are the result of more than 20 years of ongoing research based on two well-established predictors of how difficult a text is to comprehend. By measuring both text difficulty and reader ability on the same scale, readers can be appropriately matched with books that will be both engaging and challenging.
