Am I able to determine my student’s lexile level using your assessments?

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company, the organization that markets and supports the District version of easyCBM has a contract with Metametrics, the company that has made the concept of lexiles so popular, to provide a Lexile score for the easyCBM reading Benchmark reading measures when they are administered through the District version of easyCBM.

If you had a District account, you would be able to get a measure of your students’ Lexile level using the easyCBM MCRC measures, yes.

We do not offer this feature on either the free Lite Edition or the Teacher Deluxe edition because what Metametrics charges for an assessment system to provide a lexile score would actually far exceed what we charge people to use the whole easyCBM Teacher Deluxe system with up to 200 students. In addition, although it is nice to be able to have an estimate of your students’ current level of reading ability, such as a lexile score, we have found that what really matters is identifying which students are struggling, pin-pointing the areas where they need additional support/instruction, and then providing interventions designed to target those specific needs.

So, basically, the answer is you CAN get this information from the easyCBM assessments, but only from the District version.
