Taking time to prepare students and the assessment environment to facilitate students’ best efforts will help ensure valid Lexile scores. After your students have taken LevelSet, you should check their Lexile scores to be sure they are consistent with what is known about their reading abilities. When you review your students’ scores, look for results that match what you know about the student. 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 by using the Performance report titled "How has lexile reading measure performance changed over time?" at any 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.
