Finding A book using Lexile Levels
NWEA scores are sent home in the fall and spring report cards and provide parents and educators with useful information to aid in finding books for students. After completing the MAP test, each student is given a lexile range that he/she seems to read in. The lexile range given to a student can be used as a guide for selecting reading materials at a student's level.
Keep in mind, that lexile numbers assigned to books do not take into account the content of a book, just the readability.
Likewise, if a student is interested in a topic or has a great deal of background knowledge on a topic, the child will be able to read more difficult books on those subjects. A lexile range is simply a guide to help you and your child find books.
