How to Check the Reading Level of a Book
The reading level of a book is one way parents and teacher can gauge whether a child can read a particular book independently. There are several ways to calculate reading levels. These programs take into account factors like vocabulary and sentence length to assign a reading level to a book.
Accelerated Reader is a program designed to support students during independent reading. Students choose books within a suggested range of reading levels. After reading the book, they take a comprehension test and earn points for each completed book. Teachers and parents can use the points to create a reward system that encourages independent reading.
Each book in the AR program has an assigned reading level. For example, a book with an AR level of 5.7 should be suitable for a student in the seventh month of fifth grade. To find the AR reading level of a book, parents, teachers and students can search for a book’s title, author’s name or topic in the Accelerated Reader Bookfinder database on the program’s website.
Five Finger Rule
Sometimes finding the reading level of a book is challenging. If you cannot find a specific book in one of the known reading level databases, you can use the Five Finger Rule. Students read a page of the book and count the number of words on the page they don’t know. If they find more than five unfamiliar words, the text may be too complex for the student to read independently.
Fry Readability Graph
If you want to find the reading level of a non-fiction book, you can use the Fry Readability Graph. Choose a 100-word section of the book and count the number of sentences and the number of syllables in the section. You can determine the approximate reading level by comparing these numbers on a graph.
The Lexile Framework for Reading is a popular tool used in schools to measure students’ reading progress. Students take an assessment to determine their Lexile levels. They can then use the Find a Book feature on the company’s website to find books that suit their Lexile levels. The database lets them search for books that are easy to read, just right to read or difficult to read.
Scholastic Book Wizard
Scholastic’s Book Wizard lets students sort books by reading levels from different systems, such as Guided Reading, DRA, Lexile and grade level equivalent. Students can search for books with a reading level that corresponds to their grade level. This is a useful tool for teachers, parents and students who want to purchase books. The Book Wizard also gives them the option to search for books using the title, author or keyword so they can find the book’s grade level.
