What is the Growth Planner?

The Growth Planner, an Honorable Mention in Tech & Learning 2018 Awards of Excellence, is a tool to determine if your child is on track to graduate college- and career-ready.

How does it work?

Based on past Lexile measures from statewide annual tests, the Lexile Growth Planner:

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

If your child is projected to fall short of graduating college- and career-ready, the Growth Planner can also produce a recommended growth path. Knowing where your child is 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 teachers 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 child’s 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.
