New Scale for Graded Readers

The indefatigable Rob Waring has been hard at work with the Extensive Reading Foundation to set up a publisher-independent scale which has recently been published on the foundation's website.

There is a detailed table that shows how each publisher's own levels relate to this scale with helpful links to every series of graded readers known to mankind.

In the Humber library, we have always used David Hill's EPER scale, and will continue to do so, but if I were setting up a new program, I'd probably switch to the new scale for its increased breath and detail and since you have to pay for EPER stuff.
