Lexile Reading Levels
Lexile levels are an important factor in book selection. At the Florence MS/HS Library, a book's lexile measurement is just one factor in book selection. A student's individual lexile range spans 50 points above to 100 points below a individual score. That score is pinpointed at a 75% comprehension level. One example for a particular book would be Lawn Boy, by Gary Paulsen. This book has a lexile level of 780. It's reading level would typically be suitable for 10 through 16 year olds. The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins has a lexile level of 810.
