The Lexile® Framework for Listening
MetaMetrics® developed the Lexile Framework for Listening as a tool to offer a more complete picture of students’ literacy skills than reading comprehension scores alone can provide. For years, the Lexile Framework for Reading has been used to measure student growth and predict future success. Similar to the reading framework, the listening framework measures both listening ability and complexity of audio materials on the same Lexile developmental scale.
