What are Lexiles?

"A Lexile measure is number assigned to a student's reading ability or the difficulty of a text, for example 800L. The higher the Lexile measure is, the higher the student's reading ability or text difficulty is. Lexiles provide ways for students to choose books that match their appropriate level of difficulty.  Our library's fiction section now has Lexile measures posted on the spine.  Once you know your Lexile score , you can choose a book in your targeted  reading range. Reading books in your targeted reading ranges will not only ensure success in reading, but also provide a lifelong love for reading.

For more information on Lexiles or to find your approximate Lexile measure, go to www.lexile.com."
