More than 65 popular reading assessments and programs, including 25 state assessments, report Lexile measures, so it’s likely that your child receives a Lexile reader measure each year. That makes The Lexile® Framework for Reading a powerful tool to measure reading growth over time, both within a school year and across the child’s academic career.

Introducing the Lexile Growth Planner™

Based on past Lexile reader measures, the Lexile Growth Planner forecasts future reading growth and compares that to the text demands of college and careers. If needed, you can use this information to identify a custom growth path to ensure the child graduates college- and career-ready. It’s a great tool to use on your own, share with teachers and even share with your child directly.

Example of the Lexile Growth Planner

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.

Like any predictive algorithm, providing more data typically improves the accuracy of the projection. Try our Growth Planner tool today or explore our other tools that can help you interpret reading growth.
