Whether you are a reading teacher, a content-area teacher, or both, you can best serve your students' needs when you know the Lexile measure of each student in your classroom.
If you are in one of the many states that has linked your end-of-grade reading assessment to the Lexile Framework (view list ), then you should be able to get student measures on your student roster. Ask your principal, or your district accountability department, to enhance student rosters with Lexile measures.
Additionally, a reading program or product in use in your school (view lists of norm-referenced and formative assessments and reading programs ) may record a Lexile measure for the students using it. Your school representative who works with the company offering the program—often your media specialist or librarian—should be able to request a listing of students' Lexile measures.
