Lexile® Measures

You can improve your English-language reading skills by matching your TOEFL iBT® Reading Section score with a Lexile® measure from MetaMetrics®, creator of The Lexile Framework® for Reading. Lexile measures put the reading ability of people and the text difficulty of reading materials on the same scale.

Once you know your Lexile measure, you can use it to find books at your reading level. Knowing your Lexile measure takes the guesswork out of selecting reading materials that can help build your reading skills.

More than 115,000 fiction and nonfiction books have Lexile measures, and the list is growing all the time. The Lexile site has a searchable database of books with Lexile measures.

The service is free and easy to use!

Find out your Lexile measure right now with these easy steps:

  • Go to www.lexile.com/toefl.
  • Enter your TOEFL Reading section score.
  • Get your Lexile measure.
  • Use your Lexile measure to search the Lexile Book Database for reading materials that match your skill level and interests.
