Text Box: Have your child read aloud down each column starting with the one at the far left.   Be sure to note the number of reading errors made in a column.   If two or fewer reading errors are made in a column, then read the next column to the right and continue to the next grade level, if necessary, until your child commits three or more reading errors in a column, then stop the assessment.

Interpreting the Results—Note in which columns your child made 1, 2 and 3 reading errors.  One error indicates the child’s independent reading level, while two errors indicate the child’s instructional level, and three errors indicate the child’s frustration level.  On this page the second column represents grade level reading, the third column is one grade above grade level and the fourth column is two grades above grade level.    If, for example, the child makes one reading error in column two, two in column three and three in column four then her independent reading level is at grade level (column two), her instructional level is one grade higher, and her frustration level is two grades higher.   These reading levels are defined on the definitions page.
