How do I search for content by Lexile or grade level?


A Lexile score indicates the level of difficulty of reading materials and allows Georgia educators to match resources with a student’s reading level. Several GALILEO databases for K-12 include a Lexile score with the article or book information and also let you limit your search to a Lexile range.

The GALILEO bento and classic search provide a Lexile facet (when available) on the search results page:

GALILEO provides ebooks for all K-12 schools. Although these collections are not searchable by Lexile or reading level, GALILEO provides NoveList, a reader’s advisory tool that provides Lexile and grade level information for many children’s titles:
