Increases Comprehension and Vocabulary
Readers should have approximately a sixth grade reading level to begin QuikComp®. The vocabulary to be encountered in the text of any lesson may be studied through four supporting programs so that the meaning associated with each word can be instantly recalled. The system is graduated to increase speed and comprehension to the college level.
Increases Reading Rate
The computer delivers text at rates ranging from 120 to 2400 words per minute. At various intervals questions interrupt the text flow to test for comprehension, or the text may be read without questions. Most questions come at the end of the reading selection. The suggested goal of such training is to read at least 400 words per minute and maintain comprehension of 90% or better. Remarkable progress has been demonstrated in field tests, where most achieved their goals in as little as 25 one-hour sessions.
