STAAR Reading Lexile Level Analysis Tools
The Lexile Analyzer® allows users to input a piece of text into the system, and an algorithm analyzes the content to produce an estimated Lexile level. Sign in for free at lexile.com/analyzer to analyze text of up to 1000 words, or upgrade to Professional Access to analyze longer pieces of text.
The analyzers provide an estimated Lexile measure, average sentence length, word count, and word count frequency. Pair the estimated Lexile result with our Lexile Conversion chart (download below) that provides estimated alignments between Lexile® Level, Fountas and PinnellTM Guided Reading Level, and Grade Level to help you understand the expectations for your students given a certain passage.
