Speed Reading World
This reading speed test is setup to cover the average reading speed (in English). In the U.S.A., the average reading speed is estimated to be slightly less than 200 words per minute.
When you are ready to do the test, scroll down the page so that the entire test area is visible in your window. Then click once on the start button and start reading the words in the blue test area. After 15 seconds, a pop up flag will appear. You will also hear a chime which signals the end of the test and to stop reading. (Be sure speakers are turned up!) Take note of where you stopped reading and check the number of Words Per Minute (WPM) next to the sentence where you stopped. This is your reading speed.
If you get to the last line and still have time left, start again at the top. Add 432 to the number in the right column where you finished.
