Years of research have shown that 1300L  is the ideal Lexile measure for students to reach to be prepared for college-level reading. Starting at 3rd grade, you can begin charting students’ Lexile measures to see if they’re on the path to college and career readiness, or if they need additional support.

How does it work?

Based on past Lexile measures, the Lexile Growth Planner:

  • Forecasts your students’ growth,
  • Determines if they’re on track with their reading to be college- and career-ready and
  • Shows how your students compare to others across the nation.  

If your students are projected to fall short of graduating college- and career-ready, the Growth Planner can also produce a recommended growth path. Knowing where the students are and where they need to be helps to identify and close any gaps. The Growth Planner also includes resources to encourage and promote reading growth to meet the desired goals. It’s a great tool to use on your own, share with parents and even share with your students directly.

How does it help me?

With less than 40 percent of U.S. students scoring at college-and career ready levels, many students are graduating ill-prepared. The Growth Planner provides much-needed insight early in the process of your students’ success in college and career so you can guide and direct as needed.

As you can see in this example, if the forecasted growth path falls short of college and career readiness, the tool presents a growth path of recommended yearly gains to close the gap.
