Lexile® Measure

A Lexile® Measure represents a student's reading ability:

  • The Lexile® Measure is shown as a number with an "L" after it: 750L is 750 Lexile®.
  • Higher Lexile® Measures indicate higher levels of reading ability. A Lexile® Measure can range from below 200L for emergent readers to above 1600L for advanced readers.
  • Scores below 0L are prefixed with "BR" for Beginning Reader. For these scores, the higher the number is, the lower the actual score is: for example, a score of BR200L is lower than BR100L (as shown on the right).
