The Lexile Framework® for Reading

The Oklahoma State Department of Education wants to provide opportunities for all students to become good readers. After all, reading is an essential skill and one that is highly predictive of a student’s future success in school and on the job. In Oklahoma, we want to encourage reading year-round.

Students are more likely to read if they are able to choose books that match their current reading level and their personal interests. A Lexile® measure may be used to indicate the reading difficulty of a book or other reading material. By using a Lexile measure, parents, teachers, and students can locate books and magazines suited to the student’s reading ability.

Lexile measures have been determined for thousands of books. The Lexile Framework® for Reading chart provides a sample of titles for various reading levels. These titles and more can be found in the Lexile Book Database on the Lexile Web site. The Web site also offers guidance for families and educators. “The Lexile Framework” explains more about the Lexile measure and offers suggestions on finding books and articles for your child.

Parents are encouraged to use this tool as a means to strengthen the home/school connection with the understanding that the Lexile measure does not reflect age-appropriateness, student interest, content, or the quality of the text. Reading material should always be previewed by parents or educators.

Oklahoma’s Priority Academic Student Skills (PASS) in Language Arts focus on developing good readers at each grade level.
