Transcript of CCRPI and Lexile: Addressing Lexile Through Literacy

addressing Lexile through literacy
CCRPI and Lexile
What is Lexile?
are an educational tool aligning text and readers under a common metric
characterize a reader with a measure and text with a measure
allow educators to forecast the level of comprehension a reader is likely to experience with a particular text and provide appropriate reading materials
Lexiles do not address:
Lexile expectations per grade:
CCRPI Expectations
level at which a student can read with 75%
75% comprehension - instructional reading level (certain amount of comfort but still offers a challenge)
Text Characteristics:
age appropriateness of content
text support
text quality
Reader Characteristics:
interest and motivation
background knowledge
reading context and purpose
Reading ease:
Text readability is 100L + below the reader's Lexile level
Reading growth:
Text readability is within reader's Lexile range
Reading frustration:
Text readability is 100L + above reader's Lexile level
Lexile range = between 100L below and 50L above
Example: a student with a 700L score should read in the 600L to 750L range
Percent of students in Grade 5 passing at least 4 courses in core content areas (ELA, mathematics, science, social studies)
Percent of CRCT assessments scoring at the Exceeds level
Percent of English Learners with positive movement from one Performance Band to a higher Performance Band as measured by the ACCESS for ELLs
Percent of Students With Disabilities served in general education environments greater than 80% of the school day
Percent of students scoring at Meets or Exceeds on the Grade Five Writing Assessment (required participation rate ≥ 95%)
Percent of students in grade 3 achieving a Lexile measure equal to or greater than 650
Percent of students in grade 5 achieving a Lexile measure equal to or greater than 850
Percent of students in grades 1-5 completing the identified number of grade specific career awareness lessons aligned to Georgia’s 17 Career Clusters (operational in 2012-2013)
Student Attendance Rate (%)
Percent of students scoring at Meets or Exceeds in ELA (required participation rate ≥ 95%)
Percent of students scoring at Meets or Exceeds in reading (required participation rate ≥ 95%)
Percent of students scoring at Meets or Exceeds in mathematics (required participation rate ≥ 95%)
Percent of students scoring at Meets or Exceeds in science(required participation rate ≥ 95%)
Percent of students scoring at Meets or Exceeds in social studies (required participation rate ≥ 95%)

Lexile in the Classroom
Measure readability of ANY selected text:

Use articles or reading passages from websites
Ex: Use a Primary Source
Type it into a Word document and save as a Plain Text file:
What can you do in your classroom to support student Lexile growth?
ATOS Conversion to Lexile
"Research has shown that the texts required for many post-secondary pursuits fall within a Lexile range of 1200L to 1400L, while the text complexity of typical high school textbooks for grades 11 and 12 is about 1050L to 1165L. This research provides valuable insight into the apparent disconnect when high school graduates encounter college and career texts. To put this gap in perspective, a 250L difference between reader ability and text complexity can cause a drop from 75-percent comprehension to 50-percent comprehension. This means that high school seniors who can successfully read twelfth-grade texts may enter college or the workplace several months later and encounter texts that result in less than 50-percent comprehension."

Learning Goals
Participants will:
Define Lexile and describe how it is used.
Understand how to measure student Lexiles.
Understand how to measure the Lexile of a text.
Learn how to apply instructional strategies to increase student Lexile scores.
Essential Questions:
What is a Lexile and how do I use it?
How do I measure the Lexile of a text?
What instructional strategies can I use to increase a student Lexile scores?
Lexile is not:
A reading program
A test or method of assessment
Educational software

Lexile scores:
Lexiles typically range from 200 for beginning readers
to 1700 for advanced readers
• Lexile text below 200L represents beginning-reading
material, and a student’s Lexile score may have a
number in the 100s or the code of BR. BR is a code
that stands for Beginning Reading.
Develop individualized or classroom reading lists tailored to provide appropriately challenging reading.
Enhance thematic teaching by building a bank of titles at varying levels that support the theme, but also allows all students to participate successfully in the theme with material at their own reading level.
Sequence materials, for example by increasing the difficulty of read-aloud books throughout the year.
Develop a reading folder that goes home with students and comes back for weekly review. Folder might contain:
a reading list of books within the student’s Lexile range
reports of recent assessments
a form for parents to record reading that occurs at home.
Vary reading difficulty of material to the situation:
Choose texts lower in the student’s Lexile range when factors make the reading situation more challenging, threatening or unfamiliar.
Select texts at or above the student’s range to stimulate growth when a topic is of extreme interest to a student, or when you will be giving additional support such as background teaching or discussion.
Set measurable goals for instruction and special intervention programs
Monitor progress of various reading programs (AR, STAR Reading, Reading Counts, SRI, etc.)
Make parents “partners to the classroom” by giving them a tool for selecting appropriate reading material for their children (e.g., Summer Reading Lists, visiting library, etc.)
Help students set goals for themselves, and use annual CRCT results to see if they have progressed towards their goals.

* Use CRCT Lexile score from previous year as a
Lexile measures include the variables of word frequency and sentence length.
Or to find Lexiles of books
Who should be our targets for Lexile growth?
(based on CRCT 2013)
(this year's 7th gr.)
(this year's 8th gr.)
Suggestion for this year's 6th grade Lexile baseline scores: 6th grade teachers pull their 1st period students' CRCT Lexile scores from Infinite Campus
