Scholastic Literacy Pro is a researched-based, online assessment resource that provides teachers with evidence-based data so they are informed when making teaching/ learning decisions to develop their students into successful, proficient readers.
Reading proficiency is being able to read the texts expected for a year level. Based on collaborative research with MetaMetricsInc, Scholastic developed Lexile Framework for Singapore schools. This provides the benchmark against which teachers can evaluatethe Lexile scores, to determine if students are reading on-grade level, above or below.
Literacy Pro uses MetaMetrics norm-referenced data to identify the average end-of-year Lexile.
MetaMetrics conducted research to find the expected Lexile growth for students based on starting Lexile and year level. This data may be used to forecast growth, set goals and identify gaps that might need specific intervention, and evaluate actual development.
