Understanding Leveling Systems

Saturday, June 29, 2013
3:00 pm to 4:00 pm, US/Central

Leveling is used by educators to identify books that match the reading ability of students. While not everyone likes or uses leveling, it is important to understand it. Students may ask for “Q” books, books at 950L or books with 5 AR points. However, inappropriate uses of leveling can violate the Library Bill of Rights. Librarians will learn about the history of readability calculations, some popular leveling systems and databases for finding book levels.
