whats your reading speed and comprehension rate.

My reading speed: 485 words per minute

comprehension : 85%

I've done those tests before, though over here and back then it was your reading age, not an inane rating. You can kind of convert the values over though, vaguely.

I got a reading age of 46 when I was 15 which puts me roughly in the 530-580 words per minute range (vague but that's the problem with converting the older system) with full comprehension.




... Yeah well I read a lot.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

226 words and 100% comprehension.

Doesn't surprise me because, although I read a lot, I don't like to rush through and miss things. I could probably have read it much faster and reduced my comprehension, but what would be the point in that? I'm actually amazed that everyone's comprehension rate is so low...

Maybe it's because reading history books and articles at uni has taught me the importance of taking in all of the information, as it's the only way you can fully understand the author's point.

Plus, if I'm enjoying a book I don't feel a need to rush through it in order to get it out of the way, unless I'm anxious for a particular revelation.

Have finished my degree actually but I am a slower reader than most other History students I know.

It does strike me that this whole test is designed to sell software though. So it's in their interest to tell you that your reading speed sucks.
