Lexile and Quantile Measures in Wyoming

Students in grades 3-10 receive a Lexile measure for ELA and a Quantile measure for math from the Wyoming Test of Proficiency and Progress (WY-TOPP). View these quick recordings to Explore the Lexile & Quantile Hub (12 minutes), receive An Introduction to the Lexile Framework for Reading (20 minutes), and An Introduction to the Quantile Framework for Mathematics (20 minutes).

For Parents & Families: The 20-minute recording, Family Engagement in Reading and Math, is an introduction for families on how to utilize Lexile® & Quantile® measures to reinforce learning.

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.

Find out more about Lexile measures and Lexile codes.  Further information is broken out to provide tools and resources for Parents & Students and for Educators.

What is a Quantile measure?

The Quantile® Framework for Mathematics, developed by MetaMetrics®, uses a common developmental scale to measure both the math skill level of the student and the difficulty of math skills and concepts they encounter.
