Reading Instructional Level
The instructional reading level is the highest level at which a reader is not independent, but has adequate background knowledge of a topic, and can access text quickly with no or few errors.
Think of the highest level you would ask a child to read with only a small amount of help or support. The vast majority of the text that a child reads during the school day should not exceed this level.
