In the Guided Reading activities, Tiered Reading Books are used. Graded Reading Books are important because they allow teachers to help students read books at the right instructional level, thus helping each student’s reading ability develop optimally and as needed.

YLAI has developed a Tiered Reading Book Package which is graded based on different characteristics in terms of text and graphic characteristics. Characteristics of texts in tiered reading books include the average sentence per page, the average word per sentence, the complexity of the story, and the structure of the language. At the same time, the graphic characteristics of tiered reading books consider the illustration framework, design considerations (illustration complexity), edit considerations (font shape and size), and the number of pages.

YLAI’s Book Leveling According to BSKAP Regulation of Indonesia’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology

The Leveled Reading Book developed by YLAI is divided into 6 levels. It is intended to classify books according to the level of students’ reading ability. Meanwhile, based on the Regulation of the Head of the Educational Standards, Curriculum, and Assessment Agency (BSKAP)Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology – RI Number 030/P/2022 concerning Guidelines for Book Leveling, YLAI’s book leveling can be adjusted as shown in the following table:
