WORKING WITH METAMETRICS, INC., SCHOLASTIC
HAS DEVISED PROFICIENCY LEVEL STANDARDS FOR
EACH GRADE LEVEL 112. THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA
WERE USED TO DEVISE THESE STANDARDS:

  Nationally norm-referenced scores from standardized tests linked to the Lexile
   Framework for Reading.

  National percentile scores from a medium-sized U.S. State's End of Grade Test
   to the Lexile Framework.

  Cut scores defining grade levels from two large U.S. urban school districts.

  Foundation titles across grade levels as criteria for what students should know
   and be able to do.

  Grade mid-point ranges established by MetaMetrics for each grade level based
   upon Scholastic Reading InventoryTM scores.

  Text demands placed upon readers for various standardized tests.
APPLICATION OF PROFICIENCY LEVEL GUIDELINES
These tables can be used to place students on a Lexile level in Scholastic Reading
Counts! in the absence of a reported Lexile score.

By determining a student's proficiency level through a non-Lexile based standardized
test or non-Lexile reporting state exam, educators can place a student more precisely
in Scholastic Reading Counts!, where the default placement suggestion is at the
student's current grade level.

Educators can use these charts in two ways:
   Obtain the student's percentile rank for any validated standardized test.
   Select the corresponding Lexile range from the center column.

Or, based on professional judgment, educators may:
   Select a proficiency level as compared to peers (left column).
   Select the corresponding Lexile range from the center column.

These charts are for guidance in placement in the absence of a Lexile score. In
Scholastic Reading Counts!, placement slightly above the reading level is preferred. If a
student consistently receives a below 60 percent score, especially on subsequent quiz-
                          g should be adjusted
zes, his or her Lexile range            j      downward. If a student handles quizzes
                   he should be expected to read more difficult texts as the school year
with ease, he or she
continues.
