Obviously, while the book may be of interest to your child, Interest Levels give no indication as to whether or not your child will be able to comprehend the book, which is why Lexiles and Reading Levels will also need to be examined.

When selecting the Print button at the top of the Quiz List, you will be given an estimation of the number of sheets of paper it will take to print the list. The actual number of sheets will vary depending on your printer.
