Col. 2 Guided Reading Level = The suggested Fountas and Pinnell range for each grade level.
Col. 3 Lexile Learner Range = A Lexile learner or student measure indicates a learner’s independent reading level range.
Col. 4 Lexile Text Ramge Reflected in CCSS = A Lexile measure on a text indicates the complexity of the reading material. Texts are measured using a algorithm that examines the semantic and syntactic features of the text.
**Lexile measures for texts and learners that fall below 0L on the scale are referred to as Beginning Reading materials or learner abilities. They receive a ‘BR’ notation before the reported measure. A Lexile measure of BR100L indicates that the Lexile measure is 100 units below 0L. Just as -10° is warmer than -30° on a thermometer, a BR100L book is more complex than a BR300L book.
