Which comprehension standards are assessed at each level?

Each question is written to assess at least one Common Core State Standard. As we write questions for a specific text, we refer to the CCSS Literature and Informational Text standards for that grade level. These grade-level standards are variations on the College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards for Reading.
