Scholastic Reading Pro is used to track and monitor reading and produces a Lexile measure for all pupils in year 9, 10 and 11. The Reading Pro Test results are based on the Lexile Framework for Reading, a scientifically accurate system for measuring readers’ comprehension levels and then matching them to texts.
Lexile Reader Measure: a Lexile reader measure is generated from the results of the Reading Pro Test.
Lexile Text Measure: A Lexile text measure is the specific number assigned to any text, based on analysis conducted by MetaMetrics. A Lexile text measure is based on two strong predictors of how difficult a text is to comprehend: word frequency (semantics) and sentence length (syntax). Lexile text measures are rounded to the nearest 5L and range from BR to 1700L+. Text measures at or below 100L are reported as BR for Beginning Reader.
In any full academic year pupils are expected to make 100L improvement.
