What is the Lexile scale?
The Lexile scale is a developmental scale for reading ranging from 200L for beginning readers to above 1700L for advanced text. All Lexile Framework products, tools and services rely on the Lexile measure and scale to match reader and text.
Is it possible to tie grade-level equivalents to Lexile measures?
