The most powerful application of Lexile text measurement is to compare text readability with the ability range of your students to forecast how well they will comprehend a particular text. You can use the Lexile Analyzer® to measure your everyday classroom materials.
The Lexile range of readers in a classroom commonly exceeds 700L. You can best serve your students' needs by providing content-area reading at their individual levels, and by identifying lower-ability students for alternative instruction. This way, readability won't stand in the way of content.
You may have access to article databases or online resources with Lexile measures (view a list of Lexile content partners). With a little searching, you can find relevant content across a Lexile range.
These in-depth scenarios walk you through classroom applications for measuring text with the Lexile Analyzer:
