Lexile Content Development Tool Used By Growing Number of Industry-Leading Companies
MetaMetrics®, developer of the widely adopted Lexile® Framework for Reading, is pleased to announce a growing number of partnerships with education companies using the recently enhanced Lexile Analyzer® Editor Assistant™. The Lexile Analyzer Editor Assistant provides a fast and efficient way to develop text at specific reading levels. The latest adopters of the tool include Accelerate Learning, Pearson Learning Services, Saddleback Educational Publishing and VIP Kids. These join many other education companies already using the Lexile Analyzer Editor Assistant such as Edmentum, Kids Discover, National Geographic Society, NCS Pearson, News-O-Matic, Key Data Systems, Time for Kids and McGraw-Hill Education.
The Lexile Analyzer Editor Assistant is used to determine the Lexile® measure of a particular text along with providing access to important characteristics of the text. The tool enables users to rewrite and edit text directly within the platform while receiving Lexile measures on demand. Additionally, users can access logistical support features including file sharing and category tagging between users, a revision history and search capabilities.
In 2017, enhancements targeted to early-reading demands were added to the Lexile Analyzer Editor Assistant. To better encourage reading growth for beginning readers, tool subscribers can utilize early-reading technologies to more precisely measure the text complexity of reading materials aimed at early and developing readers.
MetaMetrics developed the Lexile Analyzer Editor Assistant in response to rising demands to produce text at specific reading levels. It is ideal for developers trying to produce content at specific reading levels and is now offered as a subscription alongside the existing Professional Lexile Analyzer®.
“The emphasis on individualized learning resources tailored to the needs of specific learners continues to increase across the education world,” said Malbert Smith, Ph.D., CEO, President and Co-Founder of MetaMetrics. “We are excited to partner with these industry leaders to provide a simple, user-friendly solution for developing texts at different levels.”
The Lexile Analyzer first became available for public use in 1998. Educators, researchers and education companies across the world have registered to use the Lexile Analyzer. Publishers can use MetaMetrics’ resource measurement service to receive certified Lexile measures that can then be reported in databases, catalogs and other public domains.
Educators can access a free version of the Lexile Analyzer, which integrates MetaMetrics’ recent advances in the science behind measuring early-reading materials, at lexile.com/analyzer. The Lexile Analyzer Editor Assistant expands on the basic analyzer with additional features and utilities for subscribers.
The Lexile Framework for Reading is a scientific approach to measuring both the ability of a reader and the text complexity of reading materials on the same developmental scale. The Lexile Framework matches readers with text that gives them the right level of challenge. More than 30 years of research, scientific validation and countless success stories have made Lexile measures the most widely used reading metric in the world.
Publishers and education companies can leverage a variety of products and services from MetaMetrics to enhance their offerings with the Lexile Framework, including the Lexile Titles Database™, the Lexile Career Database™ and Lexile PowerV® vocabulary service.
