  1. Lexile Framework for Reading Supporting Quality Instruction SETLA July 29, 2009 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change! WVDE SETLA 2009

  2. Participants Will Do • Explore the variety of Lexile tools • Use the Lexile calculator to determine a student’s comprehension rate and reading range • Complete a Lexile scavenger hunt • Create a Book Bag 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change! WVDE SETLA 2009

  3. What is a Lexile? Lexiles provide a single measure of… Reader Ability and Text Readability 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change! WVDE SETLA 2009

  4. Lexile Framework • Lexile measure • Numeric representation of reader’sability or a text’s difficulty • 850L • Lexile scale • Developmental scale for reading • Ranges from below 200L for beginning readers to above 1700L for advanced texts 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change! WVDE SETLA 2009

  5. Lexile Reader Measure Lexile Scale Lexile Text Measure 1700L Advanced Reader Difficult Text Beginning Reader Easy Text 200L 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change! WVDE SETLA 2009

  6. How is a Lexile text measure determined? • Semantic Difficulty • the frequency of the words in a corpus of written text • corpus has over 600-million words • Syntactic Complexity • the number of words per sentence • longer sentences are more complex and require more short-term memory to process 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change!

  7. Text Difficulty Arthur and the Recess Rookie 370L Arthur Goes to Camp 380L Arthur, clean Your Room! 370L Harry Potter series (880L to 950L) Little Women 1300L Don Quixote 1410L 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change! WVDE SETLA 2009

  16. Lexile Moment • At your table brainstorm… • How will Lexile measures help you? • Be ready to give one example to all the workshop • participants. • Your table has five minutes to discuss and share. 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change! WVDE SETLA 2009

  17. How do I get Lexiles measures for my students? “State Information” page on West Virginia • ACT Explore (Grade 8) • ACT Plan (Grade 10) • WESTEST 2 (Spring 2009) • WVDE On-line IEP (Fall 2009) 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change! WVDE SETLA 2009

  21. How will I use Lexiles in the classroom? • To promote reading progress • To differentiate instruction • To select reading material that meets and challenges each student’s ability across content areas • To provide a clear, nonjudgmental way of communicating a student’s reading ability to parents • To generate lists of books that parents know will be challenging reading for their children (e.g., summer reading lists) 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change! WVDE SETLA 2009

  22. Linking Assessment to Instruction Lexiles… • Add value to state assessments –adding more information but not more time. • Offer a common scale for monitoring student progress. • Paint a “big picture” view of student progress, preschool through graduate school. • Give parents and students a way to monitor reading progress. 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change! WVDE SETLA 2009

  23. Lexile Comprehension Model Reader Ability - Text Readability = Comprehension “Targeted” Comprehension = 75% Independent Reading 600L (reader) – 600L (text) = 0 (75% forecasted comprehension) Educators can adjust forecasted comprehension by changing the text options given to a reader. 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change! WVDE SETLA 2009

  24. Why 75% Comprehension? Research suggests that at 75%… A reader can have a successful reading experience without frustration or boredom A reader can achieve “functional comprehension” of the text A reader will be sufficiently challenged (by vocabulary and syntax) 75% is the “right amount of challenge” 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change! WVDE SETLA 2009

  25. Managing Comprehension Readers can experience frustration when… Text readability is 100L+ above their Lexile level Readers can experience ease when… Text readability is 50-100L below their Lexile level Readers can experience growth when… Text readability is within their Lexile range General Reading Recommendation: Targeted text range of 100L below to 50L abovethe student’s Lexile level Note: This range may vary based on text type, reading context and purpose, reading strategies and support, and reader motivation. 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change! WVDE SETLA 2009

  26. Lexile Tools • Lexile Book Database– contains thousands of books, newspapers, magazines and other reading material that have a Lexile measure • Lexile Analyzer– a tool for analyzing reading materials and producing a Lexile measure • Spanish Lexile Analyzer-atool for analyzing Spanish text and generate Spanish Lexile measure • Lexile Calculator– a tool to calculate expected comprehension at various Lexile measures • Lexile Reading Pathfinder –a set of prepared list of books by series and by topics • Lexile Power Vocabulary – vocabulary words lists for books that might challenge the reader. 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change!

  35. Recommendations: • Use a Lexile range that is from 50L above your student's Lexile measure to 100L below to ensure that s/he has a successful reading experience. • Enter keywords to find books that match his/her interests. The key here is to get your student reading. • Select books with the Lexile range that you are looking for (either for a student or based on your classroom Lexile roster), but also select a development level (e.g., "Middle School"). 21st Century Special Educators: Leading the Change!
