LEXILES

All of the Accelerated Reader books in our Media Center have been marked with a lexile rating.  Students are given a lexile range they are allowed to read in based on their i-Ready reading diagnostic test.  For more information about lexile scores please visit the following website: https://lexile.com/

Previously, all tests and books went through a selection process before being placed in the Media Center. Now a wider variety of tests will be available, but this does not necessarily mean that the book is recommended by Portal Elementary. If a parent is concerned with this change, he or she should plan to develop an awareness of what their child has selected to read.
