The Reading Tests come in the form of PUSH BUTTON or SLIDING FORMAT. PUSH BUTTON tests require the entire text to be read. The results calculate reading speed in terms of specific number of words-per-minute. SLIDING FORMAT tests are timed to end in one minute and don't require the entire text be read. The results calculate reading speed in terms of words-per-minute within a fifty-word range.
Please take note that words on a computer screen are read at a rate that is 10 - 43% slower than words on a printed page.
