Our tests measure Reading Effectiveness. This is a combination of your speed and comprehension. This has been shown to be the most accurate measure of reading abilities across 32 universities and is how we ensure our students see worthwhile results.
Each test begins with a 400 word timed essay, you read this as you would any normal text, from start to finish, without going back over it.
When you've finished reading, you'll progress to the exam. These are fill-in-the-blank questions designed to test your recall of the previously read essay.
After completing the exam we move onto the Re-Test, reading through the essay again, and answering the questions a second time, to see how much more you can absorb with more time.
After completing a test you'll be taken to a personalised results screen showing your overall and current Reading Effectiveness score, as well as your time, accuracy and words per minute.
Our database will keep track of your scores and provide you with an overview of your progress throughout the course.
If you are a teacher, office manager or in charge of a group, you will have access to all your peoples’ progress in the course.
