Why Do I Have to Take This Test AGAIN?!? The
purpose of the SRI is to describe what level of
text complexity a student can read and comprehend
with 75 accuracy, regardless of the students
initial ability level.
When have I shown progress? A student has
shown change in ability that is not attributable
to chance, when their score exceeds his original
score by the number of points that represent two

What is the Lexile Scale? The Lexile
Framework provides a common scale for matching
reader ability and text difficulty. The score
range is 100L to 1700L.
What is an SEM? SEM stands for Standard Error
of measurement and it indicated to what degree a
students test score reflects his/her true

symbolism - Something that on the surface is its
literal self but which also has another meaning
or even several meanings. For example, a sword
may be a sword and also symbolize justice. A
symbol may be said to embody an idea. There are
two general types of symbols universal symbols
that embody universally recognizable meanings
wherever used, such as light to symbolize
knowledge, a skull to symbolize death, etc., and
constructed symbols that are given symbolic
meaning by the way an author uses them in a
literary work, as the tiger becomes a symbol of
the feelings and dreams that Rob has kept down
for so long.
