Learning about Lexiles: 

The Lexile Framework® for Reading is a scientific approach to measuring readers 

and reading materials. A key component of the Lexile Framework is a number

called the Lexile measure. A Lexile measure indicates both the difficulty of a

text, such as a book or magazine article, and a student’s reading ability. Knowing

the Lexile text measure of a book and the Lexile reader measure of a student

helps to predict how the book matches the student’s reading ability—whether the

book is too easy, too difficult or just right.
