Hamilton uses the Scholastic Reading Inventory report or SRI to tell parents where their students are reading. But what is it?
The SRI s a computer-adaptive assessment designed to measure how well students read literature and expository texts of varying difficulties. This psychometrically valid assessment instrument can be used as a diagnostic tool to place students at the best level in the program so they can read with success.

HOW IT WORKS
The Lexile® Map provides examples of popular books and sample texts that are matched to various points on the Lexile® scale, from 200L for early reader text to 1600L for more advanced texts. The examples on the map help to define text complexity and help readers identify books of various levels of text complexity. Both literature and informational texts are presented on the Lexile Map.
HOW TO USE IT
Lexile reader and text measures can be used together to forecast how well a reader will likely comprehend a text at a specific Lexile level. A Lexile reader measure is usually obtained by having the reader take a reading comprehension test. Numerous tests report Lexile reader measures including many state end-of-year assessments, national norm-referenced assessments, and reading program assessments. A Lexile reader measure places students on the same Lexile scale as the texts. This scale ranges from below 200L to above 1600L. The Lexile website also provides a way to estimate a reader measure by using information about the reader’s grade level and self-reported reading ability. Individuals reading within their Lexile ranges (100L below to 50L above their Lexile reader measures) are likely to comprehend approximately 75 percent of the text when reading independently. This “targeted reading” rate is the point at which a reader will comprehend enough to understand the text but will also face some reading challenges. The result is growth in reading ability and a rewarding reading experience. For more guidance concerning targeting readers with books, visit www.Lexile.com/ fab/OK to access the “Find a Book, Oklahoma” tool. “Find a Book, Oklahoma” enables users to search from over 225,000 books to build custom reading lists based on Lexile range and personal interests and to check the availability of books at the local library.
