A publisher must work directly with MetaMetrics (the company that owns the Lexile measurement system) in order for their books get Lexile scores. Lexile scores can be included in the normal data feed. If the publisher supplies us data in ONIX, there is a space to input the Lexile scores. If the data is supplied in Excel, the Lexile scores should be placed in their own column.
Please note: We will eventually receive the data from MetaMetrics, but if a publisher wishes to supply the data directly, we will load it.
All the information a publisher needs to get started can be found on the Lexile.com website.
