Realizing the varied reading abilities of the nation’s students, especially within a single classroom, Edgenuity’s courses include texts and readings that accommodate a range of reading abilities while remaining an academically challenging curriculum. The following chart shows the Lexile range for each grade-level course.

However, we also follow guidelines for text complexity as outlined by the Common Core. A given text may fall outside the general Lexile range but be of an appropriate complexity for other reasons. For example, a text may be at a low Lexile level but be complex because of a high degree of symbolism or figurative language. Alternatively, a text may be at a high Lexile but be made less complex by appropriate scaffolding. Because of this, selected texts sometimes fall outside the range for a given grade.
