MetaMetrics Signs Record Number of Publishers in 2012 to Deliver
Lexile Measures for Thousands of Books 
A Robust Quarter Yields a Fifty Percent Increase in Number of
Publishers From 2011, With More Publishers Offering Lexile Measures
DURHAM, NC -- (Marketwire) -- 01/21/13 --  MetaMetrics(R), developer
of the widely adopted Lexile(R) Framework for Reading, is pleased to
announce that 18 new publishing partners have signed on this past
quarter to provide Lexile(R) measures for their titles. Lexile
measures offer valuable information about a book's text complexity so
that readers can select texts that best match their unique reading
ability and goals. Recognized globally as the most widely used
reading metric, tens of millions of Lexile measures are reported
annually from reading assessments and programs. Since 2010,
MetaMetrics has doubled the number of publishing partners offering
Lexile measures. MetaMetrics welcomes the following publishers:

"We're so pleased to see yet another promising quarter and
record-breaking year. We commend our new publishing partners for
recognizing the power behind Lexile measures," states Malbert Smith
III, Ph.D, President and co-founder of MetaMetrics. "Understanding
and measuring text complexity has continued to be a part of our
national dialogue, with the Common Core State Standards further
defining what it means to be college and career ready." 
The Lexile Framework is a unique tool for accurately matching readers
with text. Unlike other measurement systems, the Lexile Framework
evaluates reading ability and growth based on actual assessment
results, rather than generalized age or grade levels. Content
receives a Lexile measure when MetaMetrics analyzes the complete text
using proprietary software. Lexile measures range from below 200L,
for beginning-reader text, to above 1600L, for more advanced text.
Lexile measures help teachers, librarians and parents find books,
articles and other resources within a reader's recommended Lexile
range. Reading materials within a student's optimal Lexile range will
challenge the individual's reading ability, while still maintaining
interest and learning. 
Books that have been assigned Lexile measures are available on
MetaMetrics' free "Find a Book" search utility. "Find a Book" lets
readers build custom book lists and locate their selections at the
public library. With more than 135,000 fiction and nonfiction titles
and hundreds of publishers, "Find a Book" enables educators and
families to utilize the Lexile Framework and match readers with
appropriate text.
