Reading Standard 10 - Independent Reading and Comprehension:
Read and comprehend complex literary and informational texts independently and proficiently.

This standard focuses on successful integration of all the interpretive skills, across all levels from social reasoning to print processing. It is thus inapropriate to map it to specific competencies, since every focal concept in the competency model includes interpretive, expressive, and deliberative elements. The Common Core State Standards definitions of the reading levels are given in what follows, but these function primarily as pointers to an externally defined range of reading difficulty that corresponds to the skill levels defined in the competency model.

Reading Standard 10 treats literary and informational text separately.
