Disclaimer Regarding Lexile Measures and Reading Assessment

The Engaging English® service uses Lexile® measures to periodically estimate your reading level, provide targeted reading practice, and help monitor progress over time. An initial Lexile® measure will be determined the first time you use the Engaging English® service. This initial Lexile® measure may be based on your performance on a Lexile® placement test or on a recent external assessment linked with the Lexile® Framework. Periodic updates are based on completion of on-demand assessment activities included as part of the Engaging English® service.

The accuracy of an individual’s Lexile® measure determined by the Engaging English® service depends on the accuracy of an individual’s responses during assessments. All assessments include some amount of error, and your Lexile® measure should not be used to predict actual performance on any assessment due to differences in the assessments and administration procedures.
