Please note: A select few districts have minor customizations to their dashboards. If you work at one of these districts, some of the reading level definitions below may not apply. If you’re wondering whether your district has customized dashboard features, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A student's estimated independent level is defined as the highest level at which the student has scored >=95% accuracy and =>60% comprehension within the past 30 days of their assessment. This information is shown on the Literably dashboard under the "Ind Level" column.
- At the time of the assessment, if a student has not read an assessment at an independent level in the past 30 days, we will then subtract 1 from the student's estimated instructional level and define that as the student's estimated independent level.
- A student's estimated independent level is only determined (and re-determined) each time a student takes a graded Literably assessment. Put another way, once a student's estimated independent level is determined, it can only change after a student takes another graded Literably assessment.
- The floor rule (details here) does not apply to the estimated independent level.
