Taking time to prepare students and the assessment environment will facilitate students’ best efforts and ensure valid Lexile scores. After your students have completed the LevelSet, please review their lexile scores to make sure they are consistent with your knowledge of their reading abilities. A LevelSet test result that is lower or higher than other tests does not necessarily indicate an invalid administration.
As soon as one student in any of your classes finishes LevelSet, the Notification Center will display an alert with the following message: LevelSet scores are available! This message remains available as long as any student in any of your classes has taken LevelSet within the past three weeks.
You can review your students’ test scores in the new LevelSet Scheduler tool as soon as they have completed their tests.
- Click the menu button at the top left of your screen (aka the “hamburger menu”)
- Click on “LevelSet Scheduler” under the “Plan & Manage” section
- Choose the Language, School Year, and Class and you will see the LevelSet scores listed for each student under the column pertaining to that test administration.
- Clicking on a student’s score will show you when the test was completed.
The Lexile Over Time Report
You can also view student’s LevelSet scores using the Performance Report entitled "How has Lexile reading measure performance changed over time?"
- Log into your Achieve3000 Teacher’s Edition.
- Open the menu ≡.
- Under Data Center, click on Student Reports.
- Click How has Lexile reading measure performance changed over time?
- Use the drop-down boxes provided to customize your report, if desired.
- Click View Report.
- A list of users appears, grouped by class, grade, and/or school. If your results are summarized, click the + sign to expand your results.
- Scan the test scores. Look for test results that are consistent with what you know about your students’ reading abilities. The report includes Lexiles below 0L, which have a BR designation before the number, to help you see any incremental progress that your most struggling students are making. BR numbers will appear in the Teacher’s Edition reports, but not in any student or parent reports. The report legend at the bottom of the page will explain the figures in each column.
Viewing Data for Past/Expired Classes
The "How has lexile performance changed over time" report is designed to only provide data for active classes & students. However, you can still view class data once classes have expired for the summer months.
To view past/expired classes, click “Show more classes”. This will add expired classes to the dropdown menu.
Select the date range you wish to view.
*Note: you can only view data for last 2 years*
Under the tab “How should we limit this report?”, change the filter “By Current Class Membership”. By default this option is set to “Include only currently active classes and students”. Click on the dropdown and select “Do not limit by current class membership”. This will allow you to view data from expired classes and students within the selected date range!
