Reading, as an essential part of English learning, is directly related to the accumulation of vocabulary, construction of grammar framework, and recognition of oral pronunciation for English learners. Therefore, the country attaches great importance to cultivating English reading ability, and English reading scores account for many national large-scale exams. However, due to the varying levels of English teaching in various universities, the English proficiency of college students varies, and traditional English teaching methods are no longer suitable for the current situation. Graded reading has become a significant trend in college English curriculum teaching. The Lexile Framework for Reading is a widely used grading technique in the United States. The Lexile Framework uses numbers and the letter “L” to measure difficulty, with smaller numbers indicating lower reading difficulty and vice versa. This article introduces a reading grading system for teaching college English courses, utilizing the Achieve3000 (after this referred to as A3000) intelligent system based on the Lansi grading reading system. Through personalized reading and writing customization solutions, students’ English reading literacy has been effectively improved, especially regarding vocabulary and reading knowledge storage. The teaching quality and level of English courses have also been improved accordingly.
