With our direct connection with Metametrics, Lexile® scores, based on aReading, are available in the Screening to Intervention Report for Reading (s2i-R). Since the s2i Report does not use aReading data for K and 1, Lexile® scores are only available in the s2i for grades 2-12. We do still have estimated Lexile scores for K and 1 available on the s2i-R. We plan to add additional reporting features to access Lexile® scores for all levels in the future via the Student Data Download.
Benefits of Lexile Scores
The Screening to Intervention Report provides an exact Lexile® score directly from Metametrics. aReading scores along with Lexile scores will inform teachers on how well students can read to help personalize learning, differentiate instruction and communicate with parents about reading levels and student progress.

FastBridge obtains a Lexile® reading measure for each aReading score. Because the S2i report does not report aReading for K and 1 we do not report the Lexile® in this report for those grades. Lexile® measures are available in the data download for grades K-12. We are exploring other locations for Lexile® measures within the FastBridge application in the future.
The estimated lexile scores were derived using a linear association between aReading and NWEA MAP reading RIT score, combined with a crosswalk of MAP reading RIT scores to Lexiles. The Lexile® is based on data derived from a large Lexile Linking study. We obtain Lexile® measures directly from Metametrics.
Differences can occur and they vary in size by ability level. Below aReading score of 500, the estimated Lexiles are higher than the official Lexile®. The reverse is true above 500. Most students in grades 2 - 8 the difference is less than 150 points
