What is a Lexile Level?
According to Lexile.com, Educators use Lexile measures to match students with text, putting them on the path to success in school, college and careers. Lexile measures provide a scientific approach for matching students with ability-appropriate text and audio resources. Lexile measures help differentiate instruction and monitor growth in reading and listening, putting students on the path to success in school, college and careers.
In Georgia, students will receive a Lexile measure when they receive a scale score on a Georgia Milestones End of Grade or End of Course ELA assessment.
