You read between 400 - 450 words per minute. Well above average reading level. (The average rate is between 200 - 250 words per minute.) It is assumed that you did not skim the words nor fail to understand the meaning of what was read

I`m pretty chuffed with that!

"I felt too pressured by the timer and coudn`t concentrate."
Same here. In highschool mine was 315 but I smoked a lot of drugs since then.

I agree with birdsong. I know half these people didn`t understand a damn sentence they read. If the average is 250, why is the average here like 450? Yeah right.

i think i read faster than that...but usually only when im into what im reading.
the issue is when i have to read the same paragraph over and over because i have no idea what im reading. lol.

250 - 300. But yeah, if I just wanted to skim through and read without understanding anything, it would probably be in the 400 area.

Well, they`re trusting people not to cheat and read faster than they can comprehend.

Cause really, if you do that, what`s the point? You`re just lying to yourself, the test doesn`t mean anything.

For fun, I skimmed to see what I got for that and I finished reading the whole thing before the minute was up. When I clicked on the results I was reading at the bottom it started me over :-P

Now if I could only type that fast! I`d be Superwoman :-)

I find if I try to rush, I don`t get the full comprehension. Sure, I could read the words faster, but I like to take them in slowly and visualize everything, especially with novel-style stuff like this.

Didn`t bother to feed my ego, so I read slow and skimmed nothing, got 300-350. Could go faster, but if you don`t truly retain what you are reading, then what`s the point? :)

I thought it would be a lot less. I`m a really slow reader, I have problems concentrating and usually have to read the same sentence more than once.
