EVALUATION AND COMMENTS: CD-ROM SPEEDRAT


Concerning WINDOWS CD-ROM SPEEDRAT
I am responsible for the training of consultants in language teaching and special education and as such I have presented your CD-ROM to my students.
All of them including myself were absolutely enthusiastic about this new system.
I think that this is an excellent system which is efficient and easy to use in daily classroom work.
I recommend it without reservation. I am organizing a teachers training course on "reading skills" at the german school in Copenhagen and I 'll certainly recommend this CD-ROM to the participants.

The reading test is very interesting because it measures silent reading speed with immediate comprehension ...
The time measured for reading silently a sentence also includes the cognitive action of deciding on its content.
This is a good way of measuring the completion of reading a sentence:
When the student has grasped the meaning of the sentence instead of just identifying its words .
