Documentation CD-ROM SPEEDRAT
(from 8 years)

Reading speed and text comprehension

Slow readers find it difficult to understand longer sentences and paragraphs.
Those who read below reading out speed (150 words per minute) prefer listening to reading.
Up to 5th grade only about half of the students reach this important level and often stay below it as adults.

Speedrat trains high speed recognition of isolated letters and of over 2500 of the most frequent English words in 330 games grouped according to length and similarity.

Speedrat also contains a test of reading speed and comprehension (screening).
Scores are compared with standards from the authorís latest research with over 1500 students.

To find reading a book really exciting you need to read faster than 150 words per minute.
