El Sistema Lexile® para Leer

El Sistema Lexile® para Leer, the Spanish-language version of the Lexile® Framework for Reading, is a scientific approach to measuring the reading ability of Spanish-speaking students and text demand when the presentation language is Spanish. El Sistema Lexile includes a Spanish Lexile® measure and the Spanish Lexile® scale. A Spanish Lexile measure represents both the complexity of a text, such as a book or article, and an individual’s reading ability. Spanish Lexile measures are expressed as numeric measures followed by an “L” (for example, 850L), and are placed on the Spanish Lexile scale. The Spanish Lexile scale is a developmental scale for measuring reading ability and text complexity, ranging from below 0L for beginning readers and beginning reader materials to above 1600L for advanced readers and materials. Knowing the Spanish Lexile measures of a reader and text helps to predict how the text matches the reader’s ability – whether it may be too easy, too difficult or just right. All Spanish Lexile products and services rely on the Spanish Lexile measure and Spanish Lexile scale to match reader with text.
