Reading Levels

Jerry Johns, Basic Reading Inventory, introduced me to the idea that responsive instruction is more likely to be provided if teachers know the student's reading needs (Kibbs, 1995).

Independent LevelRelatively easy for the student to read (95% word accuracy).
Instructional LevelChallenging but manageable for the reader (90% word accuracy).
Frustration LevelDifficult text for the student to read (less than 90% word accuracy).
