AutoSkill is a program that is designed to help people learn how to improve their reading abilities. The program offers a battery of tests to determine reading level. There are five different categories that the student can be tested under. Once tested, the student proceeds to training. This is similar to the testing, but the computer will keep track of the student’s progress as he or she moves through the training. The software moves the student ahead or retains them at the current training level, depending on the student’s progress. The concept of the program is based on the automaticity theory of speed and accuracy of response. The AutoSkill Reading Program has been successfully used by the Walkerton & District Literacy Council in a program of basic education / literacy appropriate for developmentally challenged adults.
