The Lexile Framework® for Reading is a scientific approach to measuring text
difficulty and reading ability, putting both texts and readers on the same scale
to accurately match readers with reading materials. A Lexile measure for either a
text or a reader is a simple number followed by an “L” (e.g., 850L). The Lexile
scale ranges from below 200L for beginning readers and beginning-reading text
to above 1700L for advanced readers and text. Both the Lexile measure and
Lexile scale are integral parts of the Lexile Framework. *
