How Hameray Books Are Leveled

Our books are leveled by a panel of long-time Reading Recovery Teacher Trainers. To determine the level of a new title, these trainers use a "constant comparison" process to compare the title and its component characteristics to existing benchmark texts that have previously been leveled and proven to work at those levels. Then the titles are assigned a guided reading level (letter level) and an intervention level (number level modeled on the criteria for Reading Recovery levels).
