What is a Lexile measure?
The Lexile® Framework for Reading, developed by MetaMetrics®, measures both a student’s reading ability and the text complexity of reading materials on the same developmental scale. The Lexile Framework matches readers with text that gives them the right level of challenge. This Lexile measure helps students, parents, and teachers find targeted readings from more than 100 million articles, books and websites that have been measured.
Wyoming students, parents, and educators can access Wyoming’s GoWYLD State Library Online Database to access an abundance of online newspaper and magazine articles that match their Lexile range.
