Instructional Uses of the Lexile Framework.
Stenner, A. Jackson
The Lexile Framework provides teachers with tools to help them link the results of reading assessment with subsequent instruction, focuses on appropriate-level curriculum for readers at all educational levels, and is designed to be flexible enough to use alongside any type of reading program. Suggested areas for application of this system include: (1) monitoring reading program goals; (2) making decisions about reading programs; (3) communicating with parents to include them in education; (4) helping students set appropriate learning goals; (5) challenging the best readers; (6) improving students' reading fluency; (7) teaching learning strategies by controlling comprehension match; and (8) targeting instruction to students' abilities.
