403 wpm 555 comprehension

I dont believe that i got 82% accuracy and 330 wpm because im very tired, its late and that was a rather large amount of boring text.

Is something wrong with me, i read 1665 words per minute, and i am not even rushing!!!!!!!!! My comprehension was only 64% but i work really badly under pressure

I read at 431 wpm with 91 % comprehension.

407 wpm...

I don't profess to be a fast reader, though. Most of my reading these days comes from either my LJ friends list (which reaches around 10-20K words a day) or factual websites (such as Wikipedia). I did read a huge amount for my history, however, including a whole book on Stalin & Kruschev on the train to Cambridge for my (unsuccessful) interview last year.

i got this "You read at 70 words per minute."

it also said : Your comprehension is 27%.

You got 3 correct answers out of 11.
by the way my reading comprehension is at a 2nd grade level so i don't expect much out of what i can do, and it had too much reading.

413 words per minute and comprehension of 82%... however, I'm not well, and can normally read much much faster!

550 wpm and 64 %

Fri Dec 02, 2005 4:40 pm

I read at 357wpm and got 45% for comprehension.

It was a fun test, and I got 403 words per minute at 82% comprehension.

860wpm, 82% comprehension.

I would say the high comphrension score is mainly luck in this case for me...
My comphrension falls below 30% when I have to read out loud as I found out when I was assessed, but even reading normally I would say its about 40-50%.

I don't know

Well I didn't take the poll because I'm also Aspergers but I had a reading speed of 1467 words per minute with a comprehension of 55%

Mon Mar 19, 2007 12:10 pm

Oops-I meant 1267 words per minute.
