The Lexile Framework® for Reading is a
tool that makes it possible to place readers
and text on the same scale. The Lexile
Framework was built on the common
knowledge that text can be ordered as to
difficulty, and readers can be ordered as
to reading ability.
The Lexile Framework gives teachers a "map" of reading
materials that are well suited to their students at specific skill
levels. The Lexile Scale is a developmental scale that ranges
from 200L to above 1700L.
Within the Lexile Framework, the readability of a text is
determined by examining the whole text to measure such
characteristics as sentence length and word frequency —
characteristics that are highly related to overall reading
