    Lexile Information and the EOG
    Students are tested for their current Lexile level three or more times throughout the school year, which is another measure of their reading level.  Individual goal setting conferences are held with each child and their information is graphed in the front of their planner. Click here for a video that explains the Lexile measure https://youtu.be/AiFm2Jr8FzY
    We will focus on using https://lexile.com at school (in the classroom and media center) to find books on your child’s reading level. Your child should be reading books 100 points below and 50 points above their level in order to help them make significant growth in their reading. Please help us help your child select books they enjoy at their reading level. 
    Our closest indicator to how students will perform on the reading EOG is their accurate Lexile level which is measured by the RI (Reading Inventory). Below is a list of Lexile correlation with EOG achievement levels.
    Level 3 Sufficient Command     SRI score of 725L - 790L
    Level 4 Solid Command             SRI score of 795L - 1025L
    Level 5 Superior Command         SRI score of 1220L and above

    Quantile score based on the scholastic Math Inventory
    All third grade students participate in the Scholastic Math Inventory throughout the year to measure progress. Our closest indicator to how students will perform on the math EOG is their accurate Quantile level which is measured by the MI ( Math Inventory).  Students take the MI assessment at least 3 times throughout the year.  Ask your teacher and child about their personal Quantile measurement. This measurement is also used by the middle school to help determine math placement. 

    Below is the correlation between math level and EOG performance. 
    Level 3 Sufficient Command   SMI score of  610Q to 675Q
    Level 4 Solid Command  SMI score of           680Q to 884Q
    Level 5 Superior Command   SMI score of          885Q and Above
