Throughout each lesson students receive constructive feedback, and a detailed end-of-round report is displayed after several passages have been completed.

The report gives teachers and students a quick assessment of core reading skill levels. It serves as a foundation for future improvement, which can be achieved using the activities on this web site and other materials as a supplement to everyday instruction.

These lessons are a helpful resource for elementary and secondary level students, ESL classes, and GED preparation programs.

Content on this web site is based on Merit Software's popular reading skills programs: Accu-Reading, Developing Critical Thinking Skills for Effective Reading, and Vocabulary Fitness. Information on our programs may be found at

Periodically we will change the lessons presented on the web site. If you have any suggestions or requests, please contact us.
