The Lexile® Framework for Reading

Research is the cornerstone of myON development. Findings from our partners at MetaMetrics, creators of the Lexile® Framework for Reading, and other experts show that children are more engaged and grow as readers when they read books that match their interests and are in their target Lexile® range, which is 100L below and 50L above their current Lexile® level.

"By engaging in text at their Lexile level, students can build the reading skills necessary for success as they progress through school, and as they look forward to the reading demands of their future academic and professional pursuits."

Measures reading ability and text

The Lexile® Framework, which is based upon more than 20 years of research funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, measures reading ability and text complexity on the same scale. Lexile® measures are provided for all books in the myON environment.

myON incorporates the Lexile® Framework to provide learners with recommended reading lists that meet their interests and are challenging, but not frustrating.

Through embedded Lexile® assessments presented as a natural part of the reading process, myON also seamlessly monitors and projects reading growth.

Lexile® measures are widely used in the U.S. and around the world, and can be translated into any reading scale.
