Lexile® Intake and Progress Assessments
“I love using LevelUp with my students. It’s terrific that they take the intake assessment, so
their bookshelves are stacked with titles on their level. The selection of books is great and
it’s nice that I can assign books as well as allow for student choice.”
LevelUp Reader’s assessment monitoring system is entirely automatic and periodically assesses students. Teachers do not need to take any action. However, they can closely monitor student progress in Reports.
Students become eligible for a progress monitoring assessment when 14 days have elapsed and the student has completed at least 5 books at an appropriate reading level or has read for at least 2.5 hours. A progress monitoring assessment consists of 6 test items. It is untimed but can be completed in a few minutes. Upon completion, the student receives an updated Lexile reading measure and his or her bookshelf adjusts accordingly.
LevelUp Reader quizzes help educators to track mastery of skills and standards.
LevelUp Reader books include brief comprehension quizzes. Students are automatically given a quiz after they complete a book (unless a teacher has adjusted the “quiz frequency” setting in My Classroom). Quizzes contain 5 or 10 multiple-choice items. Some also contain a constructed response or “short answer” item, which asks a student to type out a brief response to a question prompt.
Each quiz item assesses one comprehension skill and one ELA standard. ELA standards are specifically tailored to your location, based on your state, province, or territory. You can review student performance according to each skill and standard in Reports.
Measure Accuracy, Comprehension & Fluency
with Running Records!
In addition to intake assessments and comprehension quizzes, LevelUp Reader includes running record assessments that teachers can assign at their discretion. Running records help assess students’ fluency and oral reading skills, and are a valuable tool in early literacy instruction. They are distinct from and not designed to take the place of the Lexile® assessments used to determine a student’s reading level, but their results do offer a more well-rounded view of student progress and accuracy over time.
