Students who complete the oral reading fluency assessment get a Lexile® score and Lexile range. How is this score and range determined?


Lexile score

The student’s Lexile score is the Lexile text measure of the oral reading passage for which the student was marked “Instructional”. In the passage reading portion of the oral reading fluency assessment, students read aloud up to 3 passages. Each passage has an associated Lexile text measure. When the student reads a passage, the passage is marked as Independent, Instructional, or Frustrational for the student. When the student is marked “Instructional” on a particular passage, the Lexile text measure of that passage becomes the Lexile score for that student.

Lexile range

The Lexile range is 50 points above and below the Lexile score for the student.
