Learning A-Z Levels


The Common Core Model
of Text Complexity
Learn about the criteria used by the Learning A-Z Text Leveling System to determine book levels. Determine where to start students in Learning A-Z's levels and how our levels correlate to other systems.

Our Leveling Criteria

The Learning A-Z Text Leveling System's leveling criteria accurately and reliably measures text complexity to support differentiated instruction. Our Text Leveling System follows the guidelines for determining text complexity as outlined in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The Standards call for an evaluation of student reading materials in three areas of text complexity: qualitative measures, quantitative measures, and reader and task considerations.
