It includes multiple support options such as optional narration, clickable vocabulary, and more.
Introducing the Lexile Scale
The Lexile Framework was designed as a measurement system specifically for English in such a way that learners and reading materials could be placed in the same scale – The Lexile Scale
Why is it important to be able to measure reading proficiency levels?
When learners are provided with texts that are appropriate for their reading proficiency levels, they exhibit higher levels of understanding of what they read.Research has shown a positive correlation between reading proficiency and the amount of time reading that students engage in throughout their instructional years.
“When learners comprehend what they read, they may learn more.”
“Learners read targeted English texts, the more likely they will sharpen their English reading skills”
What does the Lexile scale measure?
The Lexile Scale measures both the learners reading ability and the text complexity of a book on the same scale.
