Once a student can read to 20 we combine running record testing with probe testing for comprehension (you can test comprehension with running records too) to find out they're understanding or whether they're just barking at text. Most if our kids swap to chapter books before level 30 though, just for engagement and to develop a joy for reading, levelled books can kinda kill the joy if they're not interested in them when they're beyond just decoding. I agree with what pp said too home books should be1-2 levels below and selected by the student not the teacher.

I have been told level 30 as well.
We haven't been told of any expectations of the kids, my DS1 is in grade 1 and is on level 15. He started the year at level 12. The hard part is the comprehension part, he can read all the words but the stories are becoming more complex and as he is still only 5 he is struggling a little to understand them, he gets frustrated cos he can read the words but not understand all of what's happening in the story.
He had a bit of a learning boom and ended up only getting each level for a week or so. So for now he gets 1 x level 15 book per night and 1 x level 12.
