ATOS Methodology:

The ATOS readability formula is a research-proven tool to guide students to appropriate-level books. ATOS takes into account the most important predictors of text complexity—average sentence length, average word length, and word difficulty level.


Lexile Methodology:

The Lexile framework for reading is an educational tool that uses a measure called a Lexile to

match readers with books, articles and other leveled reading resources. Readers and books are

assigned a score on the Lexile scale, in which lower scores reflect easier readability for books

and lower reading ability for readers.
