This paper lays out the rationale behind our recent decision to make minor adjustments to the recommended grade-level goals on the F&P Text Level Gradient™. We have given this change a great deal of thought and feel that although these changes are relatively minor, they are necessary to reflect and support current reviews of achievement data, our classroom observations of children, conversations with teachers and current trends in early literacy education.
