Thread: Reading Level

  1. #1

    Default Reading Level

    We are independent homeschoolers and do not do state testing. How can I determine my child's reading level?

    Is this to determine what level of phonics program to get? They will often have samples and assessments. Getting one a little bit easier than you think you need might help get into the swing of the program, to see that it is a good match, before it is too challenging (and build confidence).

    Is it just to know for your own information? There are a lot of free online assessment tools.
    Let me google that for you!
    Here are a couple starting off points (the first two for homeschoolers specifically):

    This is the reading and math assessments I like to use:

    K5 Learning reading and math assessments

    You can complete both assessments on the 14 day free trial without any commitment to keep their services.

    If you are willing to pay a little bit of money, there is always the DORA assessment from Let's Go Learn

    I used DORA for my struggling reader when he was younger.

    I work in reverse to figure it out with our kiddo - I take a look at the titles that my kid has been reading, taking note of fluency and comprehension then I look up what level the books are on the schoolastic bookwizard.
