How to determine reading level?

Recommended Posts

You can also use Basic Reading Inventories to help identify reading level. Usually they consist of graded reading lists and then reading passages with comprehension questions. They usually have 3 or 4 different set of lists/readings so you can use them multiple times.

What is the best way to determine a child's reading level? My 10 yo son recently made some significant leaps in his reading ability and I would like to see how much progress he has made or just have a better idea of where he is at when selecting reading materials for other subjects.



DIABELS is a free reading level and fluency test. You sign up for the free part here. It is also used by Oregon schools and they have a fee, so the free page that allows you to access the material to test your child's reading level is hard to find.
