Lexile® Measures Around the World
English-language proficiency is an increasingly important skill for students who want to increase their educational, personal and professional opportunities. As the global availability and utility of Lexile measures continue to grow, students worldwide are using our metrics to improve their English-language skills.
E-LQ® English Reading Comprehension Assessment
Korean students have access to the Lexile measure via the newly released E-LQ Assessment, the first English Reading Comprehension Assessment in Korea that reports a Lexile measure. The E-LQ Assessment allows Korean students to use Lexile measures to compare their English reading ability with native students in the U.S. and other English-speaking nations. The E-LQ Assessment is administered in five levels (Elementary Level, Pre-Intermediate Level, Intermediate Level, Post-Intermediate Level and Advanced Level) and is open to a wide range of applicants from fifth grade students to university students and the general public.
Our Engaging English service is also available to test takers as part of ETS’s TOEFL® Value Packs. The subscription service connects students with online articles on their preferred topics and at the right Lexile level to support reading growth. Integrated assessments and other tools allow users to monitor their progress toward self-defined goals.
ETS: TOEFL iBT™ Test
Our partnership with ETS has made Lexile measures available to English language learners in more than 135 countries who take the TOEFL iBT test. Test takers can match their reading section score with a Lexile measure using a free utility at www.lexile.com/toefl and then search for books by ability level and interests.
ETS: TOEFL® Junior™ Test
More recently, ETS announced that young English language learners who take the new TOEFL Junior test will receive Lexile measures to support their reading practice. The score report will include students’ reading section score matched with a Lexile measure and a link to www.lexile.com/toefljunior, where they can build reading lists based on their ability and interests.
ETS: Test of English in Communication (TOEIC®)
MetaMetrics partnered with ETS and the Institute for International Business Communication (IIBC) to make Lexile measures available exclusively for TOEIC test takers in Japan. Test takers who register for IIBC’s TOEIC Internet Services can also sign up for the free Lexile English Reading Guide, which allows them to match their TOEIC reading score with a Lexile measure and find recommended books and articles at the right level to support their reading practice. TOEIC Internet Services members are also eligible for a discounted rate for a 3-month Engaging English membership.
