Literacy Solution Boosts Lexile Scores

Literacy Solution Boosts Lexile Scores

A nationwide Lexile study of more than 1.1 million students who used Achieve3000’s differentiated literacy solutions during the 2015-2016 school year found Lexile reading growth at every grade level above what would be expected with typical instruction. Students using the program with the recommended frequency made more than double their expected reading gains, increasing their Lexile reader measure by 153 points rather than the expected 70 points.

Other key points include:

  • Struggling readers achieved nearly double their expected literacy gains, exceeding their expected Lexile growth by an average of 73 points.
  • English language learners achieved more than double their expected gains, exceeding their expected Lexile growth by an average of 89 points.
  • Enrichment students achieved nearly three times their expected gains, exceeding their expected Lexile growth by an average of 101 points.
