Patron Lexile Preferences

Last Updated: Feb 04, 2021 13:56

Patron Lexile Preferences

Tools > Preferences > Patrons > Lexile tab
(warning) SYSTEM Preference

Reading is essential to your patron's success. The lexile values established here are used to track your patron's reading progress as they move from kindergarten through high school. For more information on the importance and increasing performance of lexile scoring, please review the corresponding Alexandria Lexiles section.

  • Reading to Learn Lexile. The lexile value at which a patron has moved from Learning to Read to Reading to Learn. The transition from Learning to Read to Reading to Learn usually occurs between the third and fourth grade; therefore, the default Reading to Learn Lexile value is commonly set somewhere between 345 and 460.
  • Color Lexile Graphs. Use color in lexile progress graphs. Graphs without color are easier to read when printed in black and white or grayscale. This preference also affects the printed and on-screen outcome of your patron Lexile reports.
