Improve Your Reading Ability with Lexile Measures


You can build your English-language reading skills by matching your TOEFL iBT® Reading score with a Lexile measure. Your Lexile measure allows you to find books that reflect your reading ability and interests, and are challenging enough to help strengthen your reading skills. MetaMetrics and ETS offer this free service to take the guesswork out of choosing the right materials for you to read.

How does my Lexile® measure compare?

To get started, select your TOEFL iBT Reading score to determine your Lexile® measure and range. Then click on the "Find Books" button to build a customized list of books that match your reading level and interests. You can use this reading list at the library, bookstore or on the Internet to select the right materials to practice your reading.

Lexile® Measure

Lexile® Range:
0L to 0L

What does this mean?

Your Lexile® range spans 100L below to 50L above your Lexile measure. Selecting reading materials in this Lexile® range supports successful reading practice and promotes growth.


The green band represents your Lexile® range, and helps you to predict how well you will be able to comprehend these materials.
