Guided Reading Levels (GRL) assigned by Sundance
using the text characteristics described by Fountas and Pinnell in Guided
Reading (Heinemann 1996) and Guiding Readers and Writers, Grades
3-6 (Heinemann 2001).
Early Intervention Levels (EIL) are based on Reading
Recovery®, a registered trademark of the Ohio State University.
Developmental Reading Level Assessment (DRA), developed
by Joetta Beaver, is a method of assessing and documenting achievement
within a literature-based instructional program.
The Lexile Framework® for Reading is a scientific approach to reading measurement, providing a common scale for matching reader ability and text difficulty. This allows educators and parents to quickly estimate expected reading comprehension and monitor progress.
