Thank you for taking the time to use the Soundway Reading Speed Grader. As promised, here is your personalized Soundway Reading Speed Profile containing a detailed evaluation of your test score.


Based on your child’s test results, the average rate of reading is 0 Words Per Minute (WPM). This score ranks your child as an Average ReaderWhat this score means is that your child reads at a standard rate like most readers. You may find that your child:

  • Can usually complete assignments on time.
  • Sometimes struggles to complete reading assignments.
  • Sometimes struggles to focus while studying or completing schoolwork.
  • Can read short, simple texts with relative ease.

The good news is that there is room for your child to significantly improve on the current reading speed. Reading is possibly the most fundamental component of schooling.  You may sometimes feel your child struggles with homework, or in the classroom, because of the amount of reading involved. Almost all assignments, examinations, class discussions and presentations involve reading. This is true from the primary level through university studies.  To be successful, your child must have an excellent reading speed, as well as superior comprehension skills. Developing these valuable abilities early in your child’s life will bring the most benefits.
