Every book in Lighthouse includes vocabulary questions, otherwise known as cloze assessments. We closely monitor each vocabulary question and collect the data every 15 days.
There are many factors involved to determine each child’s reading level. Throughout the 15 day window, our system looks at:
We use all of these variables to determine their unique reading level every 15 days. Reading in Lighthouse 20-30 minutes a day will help make sure that your child answers the questions needed for these reading level updates.
When their reading level is adjusted, so are the ‘just-right’ level books they are matched to. This will ensure that they are always reading within their ‘just-right’ range, also known as their Zone of Proximal Development.
