LEVELS OF READING ABILITY From Gillet & Temple (1990) Understanding Reading Problems The Independent Level If a text is at the student’s independent reading level, the student can read the text easily, without help. Comprehension of what is read is generally excellent, and silent reading at this level is rapid because almost all the words are recognized and understood at sight. The student has to stop rarely, if at all, to analyze a new word. Oral reading is generally fluent and occasional divergences from the written text rarely interfere with comprehension. At the independent level, we want students to read for pleasure, information, and enrichment. Reading assignment such as homework, tests, and seatwork should also be at the independent level so the work can be completed independently. The Instructional Level At this level the text is not really easy, but is still comfortable for the reader. Here the student is challenged and will benefit most from instruction.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
