Grade for Reading Comprehension?

At what grade level should your student’s reading comprehension achievement be for that student to be competitive in school? The answer is one to two years above grade level. If your student is in 7th grade, then that student should be able to read and comprehend information at the 8th or 9th grade level and higher.

How does this help a student? Most of the activities in school after about third grade are read to learn activities. Students are expected to know how to read. Now is the time they read to learn and gather information.

The higher the level of reading comprehension, the easier it is for a student to gather information. It makes learning new material easier and faster. It helps a student work smarter, not harder!
