Benefits and Outcomes

Reading Rocket, our learn to read and reading improvement system, is equipped to determine the learner’s reading age when starting.

We measure reading age in relation to words per minute at 80% comprehension in accordance with the internationally accepted Education Development Laboratories (EDL) tables, demonstrated below:

Grade/Level Words per Minute
1 80
2 115
3 138
4 158
5 173
6 185
7 195
8 204
9 214
10 224
11 237
12 250

Our educationally sound computer based learning material contributes significantly to the development of literacy and mathematical skills. The literacy level, reading skills and mathematical achievement of learners show incredible progress within short periods of time. In several cases, learners who were unable to read their textbooks or examination papers start reading and become independent learners within months.

Although results are variable depending on the specific case, the following reading literacy results were achieved at schools using Reading Rocket over the years:

Period Used (Years) % Learners on level
Initial Testing 0 – 5
1 12 – 18
2 28 – 32
3 47 – 52
4 61 – 65
5 75 – 78
6 80 and above
