- a student's reading ability
- the text complexity of reading materials
The framework then reports these characteristics as a Lexile measure – a number followed by an “L.” MetaMetrics found that students demonstrated the following average growth in Lexile measure per academic year:
|Grade Level||Expected increase in Lexile Measure from BOY to EOY|
After students complete the assessment, their results can be found in the Growth section of the educator portal. To view your students' Lexile growth, follow the steps in this article.
