Why Can't the Assessments and Quizzes Be Read to the Students?

As a parent or teacher, you may want to know why book quizzes and Lexile® assessments are not read aloud to the student.

Book quizzes are designed as reading comprehension quizzes, not listening comprehension quizzes. If a child is too young to be able to read by themselves, the Building Administrator has the ability to restrict book quizzes to a minimum grade level or turn them off completely.

Lexile® assessments are designed using the Lexile® Framework for Reading. Per lexile.com: "The Lexile Framework is a scientific way to match readers with text using the same scale." Audio on a Lexile® assessment would negate results, skew them, or provide inaccurate results because the assessment is measuring reading comprehension rather than listening comprehension.
