Develop Lists of Challenging Words With PowerV

Use PowerV to develop vocabulary lists for books or texts so educators can teach:

  • Harder words that are above the Lexile® measure of the surrounding text.
  • Words that appear more frequently in the text compared to other texts and are important for understanding themes and topics.
  • Words where students can apply base word knowledge to expand their vocabulary to different forms of the word.
  • Words that are academic and important for school success.

With the Lexile PowerV Application Programming Interface (API):

  • Create vocabulary lists for large quantities of texts.
  • Develop lists by specifying different Lexile ranges from the same text to meet the needs of students with different Lexile measures.
  • Access vocabulary lists for over thousands of titles with the Lexile® Titles Database.

Lexile PowerV® is also available as an add-on service for Lexile text measurement.
