Research indicates that to be college ready, students should strive to…

The Lexile Growth Planner® is one way for you to get a snapshot of a student’s progress towards that goal, and decide whether they may need enrichment or other support.

But what about beyond college? What if a student wants to design videogames, or be a college math professor? To help educators, parents and students plan for the future, we conducted research to identify the reading and math demands of specific careers. Our team identified, measured and analyzed reading materials that are used by individuals who are being trained for or are in their first year of employment in these careers.

Lexile measures for more than 250 careers are available to many educators through their state departments of education or through reading products used at their school.
