Hello all,

 

The Lexile National Conference is on again next year in San Antonio,
Texas, USA. The Lexile Framework for Reading, the Lexile Framework for
Writing and the Quantile Framework for Mathematics will be centre stage.

 

Jack Stenner and I will be presenting on the Reading and Writing
Frameworks, respectively, at the 3rd International Rasch Measurement
Conference in Perth, Australia, next month. For those of you attending
this event, we hope our papers whet your appetite enough to attend the
Lexile National Conference.

 

Best regards,

 

Andrew
