Request Rejected. Reading Interest Survey. Last November we started a conversation around Jennifer Serravallo’s Five Lenses to Assess and Teach Readers.

Reading Interest Survey

We learned that by using these five lenses—engagement, fluency, print work, comprehension and conversation—you will get the clearest sense of the student. Seeing a student through only one or two lenses is limiting to you and to the student. Jen recommends that you try to collect at least one student artifact from each lens. Let’s focus on engagement. When we consider a student’s level of engagement, we are in essence assessing whether the child reads for pleasure or merely for school. Jen offers a few tools to use to assess engagement.

An engagement inventory is essentially a kidwatching tool. Another powerful tool is the book log, or reading log.

The Lexile® Framework for Reading

Within any classroom or grade, there will be a range of readers and a range of reading materials. For example, in a fifth-grade classroom there will be some readers who are ahead of the typical reader (about 250L above) and some readers who are behind the typical reader (about 250L below). To say that some books are "just right" for fifth graders assumes that all fifth graders are reading at the same level. The Lexile® Framework for Reading is intended to match readers with texts at whatever level the reader is reading.

MetaMetrics® has studied the ranges of Lexile reader measures and Lexile text measures at specific grades in an effort to describe the typical Lexile measures of texts and the typical Lexile measures of students of a given grade level. The tables below show the middle 50% of reader measures and text measures for each grade.
