Leveled Reading Systems, Explained With many lettered and numbered leveled reading systems, it’s hard to know which one to choose and when to use it. Let’s cut through the confusion. What Are the Differences Between Leveled Reading Systems? Grade Level Equivalent The Grade Level Equivalent indicates the readability of the text by grade. It is a reflection of the grade level at which a student reading on grade could read the book independently. Guided Reading Level Developed by Irene Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell, the guided reading level system gives a more precise reading level for books. Each book is carefully evaluated prior to being leveled, and teacher input is taken into consideration in the leveling process. The Lexile Framework® for Reading The Lexile Framework, an even finer numerical filter, assesses a book’s difficulty and helps match reader ability and text difficulty based on the numeric Lexile scale. The Lexile database includes prose only. Interest Level Grade Level Reading Recovery Students Curriculum Colleagues
