Determine the Reading Level of a Text
The Lexile Analyzer® in the Lexile® & Quantile® Hub allows educators to paste or type in text to receive a Lexile range and view text characteristics along with challenging words and their definitions. The Lexile Analyzer measures the complexity of the text by analyzing characteristics such as sentence length and word frequency. Generally, longer sentences and words of lower frequency lead to higher Lexile measures; shorter sentences and words of higher frequency lead to lower Lexile measures. Texts such as lists, recipes, poetry and song lyrics are not analyzed because they lack conventional punctuation.
English and Spanish texts can be measured by the Analyzer.
