Sample text

Counts correct are converted into Lexile measures via a Rasch model estimation algorithm employing theory-based calibrations. The Lexile measure of the target text and the expected spread of the cloze items are given by theory and associated equations. Differences between two readers’ measures can be traded off for a difference in Lexile text measures to hold comprehension rate constant. When the item generation protocol is uniformly applied, the only active ingredient in the measurement mechanism is the choice of text complexity (choosing a 500L article on panda bears) and the cloze protocol implemented by the machine.
