Many states have partnered with MetaMetrics to provide students with Lexile measures through annual state assessment programs. State assessments are cumulative and used to assess learning. While assessments of this type are generally not used to guide instruction, by reporting Lexile measures parents and teachers can utilize the Lexile Framework to improve a student’s reading ability.
