How do the enhancements benefit publishers and content and curriculum developers?
Lexile text measures are often used in the design of reading programs and other curriculum materials. Publishers and content and curriculum developers can now receive additional information (i.e. “early-reading indicators”) about which text features contribute the most to the complexity of a text. Creators of reading programs and reading materials can use the early-reading indicators to help guide content development and help ensure the type of reading materials that are produced contain text characteristics that are ideal for their intended audience. For more information on how to access early-reading indicators, see our FAQ, How do publishers and content developers access early-reading indicators?
