    I made a free app for the iPhone/iPod that determines your reading fluency. It gives you an age level and grade level at how well you read, process the information, than answer a question.

    The app is called "Reading Fluency Test" on iTunes. Check it out for a fairly accurate result on how fluently you read.

    Most people will be surprised with how bad they are at comprehending what they read.

    672 at 91% efficiency. Good enough imo.
    While Diogenes was relaxing in the sunlight in the morning, Alexander, thrilled to meet the famous philosopher, asked if there was any favour he might do for him. Diogenes replied, "Yes, stand out of my sunlight". Alexander then declared, "If I were not Alexander, then I should wish to be Diogenes", to which Diogenes replied, "If I were not Diogenes, I should also wish to be Diogenes."

    Which is why there's a comprehension test right after...

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    276 wpm, 73% comprehension. I'm extremely tired though (eyes are burning a bit from being over-tired) and not native english, although I'm proficient enough in it. I'd probably be firmly in the good reader category if I did this test while rested, right now I'm just at the lower edges of it.

    975 wpm, 100%. To be fair, many of the answers weren't really hard to figure out even without reading the text. Around 1500 when I read Swedish, but then again, that's on paper, instead of a screen.

    I got 333 wpm with 100% comprehension, pretty good I guess but seems like loads of people here read x2 faster than that. I haven't read a book since like 10th grade though (thanks sparknotes), so I guess I'm fine with this.

    To be honest, I always assumed that EVERYONE read with their inner voice, I never knew you could get away with reading without doing so.


    EDIT: Just a though, for you super human readers out there, the 600+ crew, how about posting how fast you read out loud? I'm just curious as to how much slower it would be on average.

    426 WPM @ 82% accuracy. I answered one of the questions, not understanding it. I thought it was asking one thing and then realized I actually was at 91% accuracy. Way to read the questions...

    Apparently I am an auditory reader. I like to sound out each word in my head as if I were speaking out loud, but not vocally.

    I'm a slow reader. I don't need a test to confirm that. I taste the words, trying to figure out what goes on behind the words (the person who wrote it, what state of mind was (s)he in, why did (s)he opt for this way of phrasing it instead of x, etc), and re-read words, sentences, and sometimes even paragraphs. I try to picture the scenario, and "simulate" various ways of viewing it, and backtrack if something doesn't add up.

    I don't know what my comprehension level is at, but I think it's way above average. And it won't matter if I test it a minute or a year after I've read the text, the scores should be pretty similar (though understandably the year after test will produce a somewhat lower score).
