Use a Trusted Source to Validate Student Gains
Assessments Powered by the Lexile® Framework for Reading
Reading Horizons software programs are enhanced with assessments created in partnership with Metametrics® to track a student's Lexile® measure over the course of instruction. By monitoring each student’s Lexile measure, you can easily validate progress and connect students with texts that match their reading level.More on Reading Horizon's partnership with Metametrics
The Lexile® Framework for Reading evaluates reading ability and text complexity on the same developmental scale. Unlike other measurement systems, the Lexile Framework determines reading ability based on actual assessments, rather than generalized age or grade levels. Recognized as the standard for matching readers with texts, tens of millions of students worldwide receive a Lexile measure that helps them find targeted readings from the more than 100 million articles, books and websites that have been measured. Lexile measures connect learners of all ages with resources at the right level of challenge and monitors their progress toward state and national proficiency standards. More information about the Lexile® Framework can be found at www.Lexile.com.
