About Reading on Grade Level  

It is the goal of Savannah Chatham County Public Schools to increase the number of students reading on grade level by the end of second grade. A Lexile measure of reading ability was produced for every student who received a Reading scale score on the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT). SCCPSS analyzed Lexiles for the first time at the end of the 2008-2009 school year. It is our goal to have all second grade students reading at a Lexile level of 330 or higher by the end of second grade by year 2012. The level of 330L was determined by taking the average between the 25th and 50th percentile from the Lexile measures from the spring 2009 Georgia CRCT scores for all second graders. During the 2008-2009 school year, 62% of all second grade students were reading on grade level based on the Lexile score of 330L.

To provide a context for understanding the relationship between Lexiles and the state’s tests, the Georgia Department of Education has partnered with MetaMetrics, the developers of the Lexile Framework to align the CRCT scores to Lexile levels. Lexile measures associated with CRCT scores provide information on typical reader ability by grade level with typical text demands for each grade level.

What is a Lexile Measure?

A Lexile measure is a valuable piece of information about either an individual's reading ability or the difficulty of a text, like a book or magazine article. The Lexile measure is shown as a number with an "L" after it — 880L is 880 Lexile.

A student gets his or her Lexile reader measure from a reading test or program. For example, if a student receives an 880L on her Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI), she is an 880 Lexile reader. Higher Lexile measures represent a higher level of reading ability. Readers who score at or below 0L receive a BR for Beginning Reader.

The idea behind The Lexile Framework for Reading is simple: if we know how well a student can read and how hard a specific book is to comprehend, we can predict how well that student will likely understand the book.

When used together, Lexile measures help a reader find books and articles at an appropriate level of difficulty and determine how well that reader will likely comprehend a text. You also can use Lexile measures to monitor a reader's growth in reading ability over time.
