Lexile Reading Levels in SIRS

What Are Lexile Reading Levels

  • Lexile scores match reader ability and text difficulty, allowing individualized monitoring of student progress.

    Why Add Lexiles?

  • Due to the accountability requirements of NCLB, many states are turning to standardized systems for reading which help to track student progress.

  • States and districts throughout the U.S.—including California, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, North Carolina, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming—have adopted the Lexile Framework as a critical part of the reading curriculum.

    How does it Work?

  • Lexile measures are based on two well-established predictors of how difficult a text is to comprehend: semantic difficulty (word frequency) and syntactic complexity (sentence length).

  • Why use two separate reading levels?

    • SIRS Editorially assigned reading levels take into account subject matter, depth of coverage and Flesch Reading Ease scale.

    • Lexile Scores provide a formalized measurement by which students and teachers can track their reading progress one of the necessary requirements for NCLB funding.

  • Advanced Search allows students to sort results by relevance, date or Lexile score in descending or ascending order. Additionally, students may limit results to a particular Lexile range.

Use the descending order option to return the highest Lexile scores first.

Students retrieve articles within their Lexile reading level – enabling research at easy and challenging levels. Leave these fields blank to return all Lexile scores.

Lexile Score: 900
