Analyzer empowers content developers to analyze English and Spanish content, certify Lexile measures on demand
DURHAM, N.C. – August 2, 2022 – Today MetaMetrics® unveiled the Lexile® Text Analyzer Content Creator, a powerful text analyzer that reports Lexile measures and provides the ability for content developers to create aligned text as they go. Using the Lexile Text Analyzer Content Creator allows companies to streamline the targeted development of material for learners at all levels.
In support of MetaMetrics’ commitment to ensuring its measures accelerate reading development for young learners, the Lexile Text Analyzer Content Creator also reports four types of early-reading indicators – semantic, syntactic, decoding and structure demand. These metrics identify important text features that may present more challenges for learners reading books developed for grades K-2.
Developed more than 30 years ago, the Lexile Framework for Reading places both the student and text on the same scale to match the learner with reading materials at their ability level. The Lexile measures generated by the Lexile Text Analyzer Content Creator are backed by this firm foundation in science and years of industry-defining psychometric research.
“By using our Lexile Text Analyzer Content Creator to generate certified Lexile measures, companies will provide their customers with a powerful tool for matching readers to text,” said Malbert Smith, CEO and co-founder. “In addition, they immediately grow the audience for their materials when it is added to our Lexile Titles Database, making it discoverable by millions of teachers, families and students and helping to achieve our shared mission of improving literacy for all learners.”
The new Lexile Text Analyzer Content Creator extends the power of the Lexile Text Analyzer which publishers, educators and other content creators have used for decades to measure the complexity of text. Over the past more than 20 years, the Lexile Text Analyzer measured billions of words and millions of books and texts, including fiction and nonfiction books, leveled readers, textbooks and primary source documents.
The Lexile Text Analyzer Content Creator makes content measurement easier and faster for educational content developers. New features include:
- Vocabulary list creation. The Lexile Text Analyzer Content Creator includes Lexile PowerV®, which generates vocabulary lists of challenging words. Content developers can provide these lists to support learning.
- Spanish text creation and measurement. Now content developers can use the same tool to create aligned Spanish language content and measure existing texts, receiving Lexile measures.
- Instant content certification. Content developers with subscription measurement plans can receive certified Lexile measures on demand for qualifying content, saving 25 days in go-to-market time.
