Online Speed Reading Test

Inn order to get my students to think about how quickly they are able to read and techniques to use to improve their reading rate I got them to complete an online reading test.

The test is available at http://www.readingsoft.com/ and is pretty simple. It gives the user a words per minute (wpm) reading rate and then a following comprehension test. The whole point of doing this was to highlight the importance of being able to speedily read through sources of information to get the 'jist' of what it is about, saving time for other tasks and locating key information quickly.
