Rreading Levels at a Glance

How Each Levelling System Works:

  • GRL — Guided Reading Levels This system, developed by Fountas and Pinnell, evaluates a variety of factors — book and print features, content, themes, and language and literary features — to level books from A to Z.
  • RL — Grade Level Equivalent Reading level is determined by the results of one or more standard readability formulas that assess the number of sentences per page, length and complexity of sentences, vocabulary, and reading levels.
  • NR — Not Rated These books have not yet been evaluated and assigned a Guided Reading Level letter.
