Question
Are Lexile® ranges on reports considered to be at the student’s instructional or independent reading level?

Answer
The Lexile® range is provided to help identify appropriate reading materials for an individual student. The range includes reading materials that a student can read independently (the lower end of the range up to the Lexile measure) and materials for which a student would benefit from instruction (the upper end of the range above the Lexile measure).
