Slide 1

Lexile Measures and the Lexile Framework for Reading An Introduction For Teachers and Parents DPS Media Services Department

Slide 2

The Lexile Framework for Reading: An instructive apparatus made by MetaMetrics, Inc. that connections content and perusers under a typical metric, Lexiles Provides a typical scale for measuring content trouble and perusing capacity Allows teachers to anticipate the level of cognizance a peruser is probably going to accomplish with a specific content Helps coordinate understudies with writings at a proper level of trouble

Slide 3

Text Characteristics that Influence Readability Syntactic Complexity Number of words per sentence Semantic Difficulty Frequency of event of individual words

Slide 4

Durham Public Schools Lexile Map Created by DPS Library Media Coordinators and MetaMetrics Provides tests of content from an assortment of books at each Lexile level found in many DPS media focuses Distributed to all understudies at end of school year in plain view in each DPS media focus Additional maps accessible upon demand

Slide 5

Interpreting Lexiles A Lexile measure for either content or peruser is a number, normally from 200 to 1700, trailed by a L Lexile measures don't specifically mean review levels. Around half of understudies in a specific review will read higher or lower than the Lexile runs in the accompanying slide:

Approximate Grade Correlations

Slide 7

75% is the "perfect measure of test" An understudy's Lexile measure is the level at which he/she can read with direct accomplishment (around 75% understanding)

Slide 8

Why 75% Comprehension? A long time of MetaMetric research proposes that at 75% a peruser … can have a fruitful perusing knowledge without dissatisfaction or weariness, and be adequately tested to enhance

Slide 9

Managing Comprehension Readers can encounter disappointment when… Text lucidness is 100L+ over their Lexile level Readers can encounter ease when… Text clarity is 50-100L beneath their Lexile level Readers can encounter development when… Text coherence is inside their Lexile run General Reading Recommendation: Targeted content scope of 100L underneath to 50L over the understudy's Lexile level Note: This range may differ in light of content sort, perusing setting and reason, perusing methodologies and support, and peruser inspiration.

Slide 10

Lexiles Score Information The Lexile Framework ® for Reading , has been connected toward the North Carolina End-of-Grade (NCEOG) Tests of Reading Comprehension and Mathematics. The test is directed each spring to understudies statewide in evaluations 3 through 8. Principals can get to understudies' Lexile measures and print reports through the PAPA testing entryway, Roster envelopes at http://papa.dpsnc.net/testing/default.aspx and give these reports to instructors Parents can get to understudies' Lexile measures on EOG Parent/Teacher Report which is sent or sent home toward the finish of the school year.

Locating Other Appropriate Reading Materials Destiny Library Manager, the online list in each Durham Public School, gives the Lexile level of each book for which a Lexile level has been distributed Access your school's online list at http://destiny.dpsnc.net , or see the accompanying slide:
