Reading Level:

The Reading Level can assist you in the book selection process so you can find the best and most appropriate materials for your young readers. Reading levels are based on the actual difficulty of the words, grammar, and sentence structure used in a book. The first number is the year in school and the second number is the month. A reading level of 1.2 means that a student is in the second month of the first grade. Reading Levels range from 1.0 through 8.9. Any grade above 8.9 is considered Young Adult.

 

Lexile:

The Lexile measure can assist you in the book selection process so you can find the best and most appropriate materials for your young readers. The Lexile measure is shown as a number with an "L" after it - 880L is 880 Lexile. Higher Lexile measures represent a higher level of reading ability. A Lexile reader measure can range from below 200L for beginning readers to above 1700L for advanced readers. Readers who score at or below 0L receive a BR for Beginning Reader.
