Lexile Level

Learn About Lexiles
LexilesX
NoveList breaks down audience levels by age, however readingabilities and interests vary widely within a specific age group. Lexile numbers, developed by MetaMetrics, are another way to measure the reading level of a book. You can use Lexiles to find books that are at an appropriate level of difficulty for your child or student.
The Lexile Text Measure
The Lexile scale ranges from below 200 for beginning reader material to above 1700 for advanced text. The Lexile Text Measure indicates the reading demand of the text in terms of semantic difficulty (word frequency) and syntactic complexity (sentence length).

How to Use Lexile Numbers in NoveList
Here is an example of a search in NoveList using Lexile numbers
A father whose twelve-year old son is a reluctant reader but has read and enjoyed Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid could use NoveList to discover that Diary of a Wimpy Kid has a Lexile rating of 950.
This father could then enter “950” in the Lexile Range Search limiter at the Advanced Search page to retrieve only titles that are within his son's reading ability.
Note: Lexile's creators recommend one hundred points below, and fifty points above, the rating of 950. Doing a search of a Lexile range of 850-1000 for books on a particular subject will retrieve many potential titles.
Although Lexiles can assist you in finding titles by addressing their readability, these titles may not be appropriate for the intended audience or maturity level. In NoveList Plus you can perform a search for all book titles within a certain Lexile range, as well as one that also restricts the results to a particular reading level. Do this by first selecting a Lexile range, and then selecting an audience level (under “Limit your results”).

* These text measures come from a research study conducted by MetaMetrics in 2009 examining collections of textbooks designated for specific grade levels.
** These text measures were developed in 2012 to align with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts. The CCSS "stretch" text measures represent the text complexity that students should be reading to be college and career ready by the end of grade 12.
