If you are interested in choosing books that are suggested for your Lexile reading level, view the Profile Report from the Performance Series online reading test or ask your advisor for this level. The Lexile reading level is an indication of an independent reading level. The Guided Reading level chart available on the Zing site refers to the Fountas and Pinnell reading levels. More information on the correspondence with reading is found the A-Z Reading Chart.
