How does the Lexile Analyzer determine if a text is a K–2 text?
The Lexile Analyzer is able to recognize characteristics of books used in K–2 classrooms. The characteristics include patterning, repetition, decodable words and short sentences. The characteristics are identified and evaluated to determine how the text should be measured. If the Lexile Analyzer determines that text possesses early-reading text characteristics, the nine-variable model is used to measure the complexity of that text.
