Check your child's report card to see whether it lists a Lexile reading score. If it does, compare the score with the Reader Measures in the chart to determine the child's reading level.

Have the child's Lexile score measured at a private learning center that uses the index if the child's school does not.
Compare text measures
Compare the Lexile text measures for any book the child wants to read with the Text Measures in the grade-equivalence chart to determine the grade level the books correspond to.
